Phantastic update! This is getting better and better with every release. And because it's free, competing products don't look too good compared with this. It now even finds Growl tickets. The developer listened to my comment and implemented it. Great software from a great developer. Thanks for this!

Works well but I continue to receive crash messages for the TrashMeHelper App that I installed from the web site.

After thoroughly testing many uninstallers (see my comment under AppDelete), this one tied for best app at finding related files that should be trashed along with the app you are throwing away. I was really surprised at how well this app did at finding related files that many other "bigger name" apps missed. Kudos to the developer!

I'm still using the ancient free version - LOVE IT! I use it for just about everything I need to delete since it cleans up all the residual files. I'm sure the paid version is just as good, if not better.

I can't compare it to other similar apps, if there is not trial version. So I guess I'll stick with the ones I have.

Sorry; no trial; no buy. I'm not going to spend anything on an app that I cannot try first.

This review leaps ahead in time. I begged the developer to let me see his beta for version 2.1.9. It gets rid of more files in more places that developers put files of their apps than virtually all the other uninstallers. There is no concern for anxiety over deleting the wrong file and the new beta algorithm is better than ever. Side by side tests with the best uninstallers show TrashMe to uninstall as many or more files. It appears that the developer will be releasing this new version pretty soon. It is not free but the fee is nominal. What is this obsession with freebee software? Why is $7.99 too expensive for the best!?

Half a year later still no version 2.1.9. What happened there?

Version 2.1.11 is now out, I understand, and it is better in its deletion algorithm than virtually any other uninstaller out there. I tested it using Thomas Templeton's Find Any File against many other uninstaller and freebees and it is an objective fact that it can do more! For instance, TrashMe now searches the "private" folder (hidden) and removes a lot of file remnants that are there which other uninstallers don't and does it accurately and safely. There is a cache cleaner and the developer told me in an email that in the next version he will be putting in a batch log deletion ability. Come on, guys. You may not be able to test before buying but I have after forking out the cash and it is much much better for the small amount of money I paid than most other uninstallers, certainly better than the freebees.

This is vague. Is it better than AppDelete?

Odysseus, what do you mean "This is vague"? Do you want me to write a review called the history of TrashMe is 30 volumes? All I can say is that version 2.1.12 is out now and a new Add-on was just put out too. The developer did not call his next version 2.1.9 as i thought... my mistake. Still I use FindAnyFile by Thomas Templeton and can find remnants that uninstallers do not yet uninstall. I happen to know that TrashMe and AppDelete by Reggie Ashworth are on about the same par. I tested them side by side against my FindAnyFile findings. However, there is to my knowledge no trial versions of either uninstaller so you must spring out the little bit of money to buy either one. TrashMe has a slightly different feature set than AppDelete so the choice has to be which features you want or need.

I meant the "I tested it using Thomas Templeton's Find Any File against many other uninstaller and freebees and it is an objective fact that it can do more!" is vague because you didn't explicitly mention to which other uninstaller you compared it.

Odysseus,
Sorry for misunderstanding you! After discovering FindAnyFile where one puts in its search the name of the developer and/or the unique name of the app you just uninstalled using a particular uninstaller, I usually found many remnants that were not uninstalled at all, particularly a ton of files in a hidden file and its sub-files called "private", etc. i tried many many uninstallers side by side with FindAnyFile and no freebee nor even CleanMyMac 2 even touched certain remnants at all. The developer's own Uninstallers that come with antivirus apps turned out to be the worst surprisingly. I wrote to Jib and told him about my methods and he started using my method and improved his algorithm beyond almost every other app. i also send the same procedure to the developer of AppDelete and he did likewise. Today, as it stands, even the best uninstallers can't cope with certain eccentric apps which follow no logic which can be safely put in an uninstaller's algorithm and so TrashMe and AppDelete cannot unfortunately deal with those crazy apps. I have to use FindAnyFile and my common sense wits to rid my iMac of all the rest of the remnants of those apps. But with TrashMe and with AppDelete, it is becoming increasing less necessary for me to run FindAnyFile after running these two uninstallers because they are so thorough. Like I said, the feature sets are different in TrashMe and AppDelete so you have to choose between them based on your preference in features. For me iTrash is out because it's algorithm produces many hits, a lot of them false positives. This, to me, is dangerous whereas TrashMe and AppDelete are foolproof. Lastly, TrashMe is very pretty as UI's go. I believe that I just read that Jib has a trial version on its site and there is a little addon file on the site which overcomes all the limitations that Apple imposes on the TrashMe which is sold on the Apple Store. Finally, to repeat, there is not 2.1.9 yet because the developer of TrashMe numbered his next version differently than I expected him to.

I've tried many free and paid trash apps and compared them with TrashMe side by side. TrashMe was the one that I found to get rid of the most files. I love how it stays out of sight until I trash an app and then quickly disappears. It's very simple to use.

Like the next commentator, I too don't have the latest version of TrashMe, but the older (free) version works just fine on SL. Years ago I compared all the free or trial ware uninstaller apps at that time and found TrashMe and iTrash to find the greatest number of associated files with the least amount of error. I already purchased iTrash and it works fine. I assume the newest version of TrashMe also works fine, and if I didn't already have a great uninstaller app, I would probably buy this one. As far as all the whiners complaining about developers wanting to earn a few dollars, "Get a life." If you don't want to pay for anything besides free, then don't, but please stop whining and downgrading ratings just because you're a cheapskate. Seems to me that most small developer app prices have dropped dramatically within the past few years, and I can remember when the best rated uninstaller app cost about $20, and gas was about $2 a gallon.
