Another anonymous reviewer, writing in November 2003, suggested a command-line way to do what this app does. Generally, there is another, even less tricky way to get rid of whatever an installation puts on one's computer, by hand and using nothing but the Finder.
When you install an application, it will usually put everything in three locations--that's it, just three locations. If you know where those locations are, you can usually uninstall by dragging to trash. Here are the three locations to check:
(1) simply trash the application package itself--that's the most obvious first step.
(2) look in your home folder for "Library," then "Application Support". Look for any folders bearing the name of the application there. Trash it.
(3) go back to the "Library" level in home, and look for the "Preferences" folder. Look in preferences for any files bearing the name of the application (sometimes it's the maker of the application) you want to delete. Trash them.
Then, empty trash. That's really all there is to it.
Some applications--but not very many--will also deposit files in the system level. To check this, open the hard drive, open "Library," open "Application Support," and repeat as above. Then, open "Preferences" folder, repeat as above.
You can usually do all of this without logging in as root.
And again: Thanks to Spotlight, we can now perform searches for any remaining files an application has left behind.
The whole operation only takes me about one or two minutes, and I get to use the resources already available. I don't need to pay $25.
Which brings me to my real point: What does this app do that I couldn't do myself? Why is it worth $25 when it's already so easy on a Mac to have full control?
This app WOULD be a great little convenience tool if it were free. I'd download it in a heartbeat, but I'm not going to pay $25 for something I can easily do myself for free.
