  • QuickLook support (OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard only)

2.0.1 is much slower than the last 1.x version on my recently clean-installed, well-maintained 2.16 GHz Core2Duo iMac running OS 10.6.8. Same on my 2.9 GHz Core i7 MacBook Pro running 10.8.4. It also seems to work more or less the same, finding the same amount and types of associated files in both normal and Expert modes, but taking roughly 3 times longer.

Although iTrash 2 is a lot optimised for OS X 10.9 our (and beta users) tests shows it is equally as fast compared to former iTrash versions running OS X 10.6.x

Could you be so kind and drop us a mail at beta@osxbytes.com so we can figure out why it is slower on your system.

Maybe you can send us a mail so we can see why it happens.

@ Geoprof or Jolly_joker:
We did not hear from you both and we still cannot reproduce this. We asked several beta testers running OS X 10.6.8 to use a debug version and we did not see any big differences. So we definitely need one of you to get in touch with us to get this sorted out for you.

hi, I'm using itrash on OS 10.9.1, but I find it slower, too. So, probably, it's not related to the OS, but to the app itself

Sorry I didn’t respond to your request for more info, I was out of the country for a while and Internet access was unreliable in Turkey.

2.0.3 runs well again, just as snappy as it used to be. Great app, and priced just right.

Works as advertised and finds more files than Appcleaner.

Although I am going to upgrade to Mac OS X 10.9 it is great it still works on my old Mac Pro running Mac OS X 10.6 - kudos for that.

As an Appdelete and Appcleaner user I also avidly followed iTrash and I have to admit iTrash looks more polished now. After a short trial I was convinced it did find equally or more items compared to the other tools.

Finally bought it and I am very pleased with it. Great app.

I was looking for a replacement for CleanApp 4.x (plenty of new functionality, yet so full of bugs, 3.x was faster and a lot more stable) and tested all kind of alternative app cleaners.

iTrash crashed a couple of times on my system while playing around with it, the UI is ugly, sometimes a bit buggy and not intuitive at all - but one thing is for certain: No other app cleaner I tested was able to find as many related files/folders as iTrash and all the files/folders it found were indeed really related. So when it comes to achieving the best clean result, iTrash is the winner by far.

Just my two cents: iTrash has a great UI. Small and intuitive.
And yes, you are right about being the best finding related items.

And it never crashed on my iMac or mbp. Maybe you should contact the developers. They are very responsive.

Must be something with my particular setup because Tech Support tells me numerous Snow Leopard updates have installed without a hitch but every time I tried to install the latest version - 1.9.7 from 1.9.6 it would crash and generate an automatic report to send to Apple. Tried autoupdate from within the program as well as downloading from developer site. Moved to App Cleaner and besides being free, it seems to find more associated files which I used to search separately with EasyFind after using iTrash.
Hopefully my experience is unique and it works fine for everyone else, but iTrash often seemed to miss the small support files for an application, such as application support and preference files, and the expert mode did not seem to help much. Again, 1.9.6 would opened and ran just fine, but I seemed to get more complete results using a third party file search utility and entering the program's name as a text string.

I use iTrash for about three years now and ones in a while I do try new versions of comparable apps. In about 99% cases iTrash always find equal or more related files. Most certainly when used with the truly fantastic iFilex from the same devs. For me iTrash is still the best.
FYI I also am on OS X 10.6 and the latest versions just works fine.

I was one of the first noticing this bug in the past. I can confirm it is fixed with 1.9.3 on my MBP with 10.8.2
It now only asks for admin password ones/delete. Which is how it suppose to work.

Still the best but for me the app, once downloaded does not have any icon at all, attempts at copying and pasting an icon fail. Niggly problem needing a fix.

In the new update, iTrash still doesn't find .dmg file with the same name of the app (so, for example, if you download, try and delete an app, after using iTrash, you still have to delete manually the .dmg file of that app)

I have sent your serial for about 5 times now without getting a mailerdaemon error - including via your claim at Paypal - so check that too if you didn't receive a reply mail from Paypal. Most probably also that Paypal reply mail was blocked by your (or provider) spam filter.

Anyhow, I have included your serial in the Paypal claim you filed. So please log into your Paypal account.

Because of some core changes the auto update does not work for this beta.

Up until the very last version of this application I absolutely LOVED it. And thought it simply outstanding. But lately, every time I try to trash an application the following Error Message pops up and it fails to trash:- "An exception of class NilObjectException was not handled. The application must shut down". Can the Developer or anyone else explain to me what this means, and what (if anything) I can do to get the application to work as beautifully as earlier versions did. I am running Mac OSX 10.5.8 on an Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz iMac, 7,1.

Since when is this NOT the place to report a problem ? Other users do so all the time. I have no idea whether it is a "bug" or not. I am simply relating my current experience. This is a review, comment AND troubleshooting forum. That is precisely what Macupdate is all about. Those are, in fact, the only 3 options that MacUpdate provides. Are you embarrassed to be told on a public forum that a user is having a problem with your software ? Get off your high horse Mr Developer !! As I made abundantly clear, until recently I thought your application was GREAT. But now it has ceased to work. There is nothing further that I could tell you in any email I sent you than what I have already told you. I am getting that same message every time I try to trash an application.

Truly this board can be used for error reports but if everyone reported their errors here we would never have any reviews and just user error logs. Many users follow macupdate simply for reviews, reviews that can benefit everyone. A personal app crash should be reported to the dev directly and then if there is no stage for you to post your error on his website and there are no responses from his emails then I would post my error report here as a last ditch effort of grabbing the dev's attention. Of course we all have our different ideas of what macupdate is and how it's used so your not wrong and neither is the dev, he prefers you report errors elsewhere and has expressed so on other posts before so it's not too out of line. My opinion once again fills these pages (now that's a waste, eh?)

But for the record. The bug he encounter is fixed.

This said .. 0.9.5 introduced a size folder bug. Already fixed for 0.9.6
