CleanApp overview

Note: CleanApp is not being sold anymore and is listed only for people who had purchased it in the past.

CleanApp is an application uninstaller and archiver. Your hard drive gets fuller day by day, but do you know why? CleanApp 5 provides you with insights on how to reclaim disk space. There are definitely tons of unused files on your hard drive - CleanApp will help you to find and delete them. CleanApp 5 has been re-developed from scratch and offers a comprehensive and convenient user interface.

Delete applications completely. Any app you install and run in OS X creates a large number of associated files in your system - hidden in places you wouldn't expect them to be. Therefore, free hard drive space will shrink continuously - even if you delete the software after testing and especially if you are trying out lots of applications. CleanApp 5 brings light into the darkness and helps you to tidy up your system.

CleanApp relies on sophisticated methods for analysing files and applications. There is even a background service monitoring all file activity - this way, no application can hide anything from you. Furthermore, CleanCommunity significantly enhances CleanApp's ability to find unnecessary data eating up space on your hard drive. By using our giant database with uninstallation information about virtually thousands of applications, tracing down leftover files become even more reliable.

System maintenance. OS X runs maintenance scripts at predefined intervals, removing for example temporary files that haven't been used in a long time. If you use your computer heavily, these intervals might be too long. CleanApp allows you to run maintenance scripts manually and to speed up your system this way. CleanApp is also able to scan and repair your file system or rebuild the Spotlight index.

I would not purchase CleanApp primarily because it's no longer being supported by Synium. I like the software (despite a bit of bloat) though I had a license since version 3 though otherwise? There're plenty of alternatives out there, AppZapper being one.

Long story short, CleanApp does not even find everything that a Find Any File search would find. My full critique of CleanApp, including screenshot documentation of its failures can be found at <https://www.finetunedmac.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=52039#Post52039Easy Find Leftovers | Networking | FineTunedMac>

After updating to High Sierra it no longer worked. I tried the latest version and same problem. I removed it using AppDelete, then used EasyFInd to look for anything that may be related and missed. I then reinstalled the latest version and it now works perfectly again. This is the app that removes software most completely. That it why I keep going back to it. It can use the community to assist in finding additional files to remove (optional). It can remove orphans and incompatible software. It can remove language files. It can trim old software that still has unneeded data forks. It can find duplicates. But it removes more files missed by other uninstallers so I am glad that I got it working again.
