Utterly ridiculous pricing for an utterly crappy app from an utterly halfassed ‘developer’.

Check out AppleMacSoft’s other offerings — they’re all halfassed and overpriced crap.

$30 for something the Mac so x finder has done for free for about 12 years now! hahahaha these developers are so greedy!!! WHILE IN THE FINDER/DESKTOP simply select FINDER,then select preferences,then hit the advanced tab,then check off empty trash securely!! macupdate should remove these kinds of apps that do simple thing built in to osx. Some people who are not familiar with mac os x may fall victim to these sneaky developers and actually pay for their software and be taken advantage of!!

You don't even have to do all that.... in Lion it says "Secure Empty Trash" right under Empty Trash. If you are on an older version of OS X, just hold down the Option key and it turns into Secure Empty Trash.

You can also use free utilities like Onyx to do the same thing.

Thirty bucks!!! For five, I'd consider buying it. I don't have any kiddie porn and I've already destroyed my correspondence file with Osama, the KGB has no particular interest in me, and so this is a luxury I just can't afford.

And, Mr. Developer, a whole lot of people are going to share my reaction. So many, in fact, that I bet you'd make a lot more money selling a lot of copies for five than selling only a few for thirty.
