Brilliant! Fast, easy to use and I wish I'd had it years ago. The uninstaller element deletes all the files, prefs, caches, etc, associated with an application, with one click.

I had to find some annoying left-overs lodged in my Login Items. After searching through every conceivable folder and doing searches with EasyFinder and Funter I learned of App Cleaner (on Apple's App Store). Ran once and it found all manner of junk including the files I'd been wanting to delete. The free version will only 'find' them. The paid for version, at an incredibly good value £4. / $4, will also delete them. Out went stuff that came across from System 9 and Rhapsody and many others from the first decade of this century.

I have been using this app for years, and have been able to get nearly instant support from the devs any time I've had an issue... mostly related to re-entering my license key. The first time was a major app update that required re-entering my key, and the second time my laptop was stolen, so I had to contact the devs again for my key. Thankfully, they made that very easy for me and I'm back to using the app again. One-click uninstall removes all the crap, and provides the easiest way I've found to keep my mac clean.

Like others have said, this app is really essential for making sure you delete all the crap left by lazy uninstallers. It's worth every penny and there is always great support from the developer.

I'm not a computer wizzard. When I delete an app I want to be sure everything is deleted, so I trust App Cleaner and Uninstaller to ensure that when an app is removed, everything is removed. It's fast and easy!

One of the most essential apps for Mac. It is common for apps, especially those ported from Window, to violate the principle of self contained application principle that Apple uses for Mac OS. Because of that, junk gets scattered across the system and it is pretty much impossible to get rid of it without a specialized app. I've tried a few other apps, and this is by far the best. The free version is tremendously helpful, but I still recommend getting the full version. Ten bucks is not a lot when you consider the value of your machine and how much more you can get out of it. This app also makes it easy to control which applications run when you restart - providing an even greater performance gain.

First of all, I'm mad because I just paid $39 for this app and here it is for $10. Grrr! However, I'm glad I found this place for future purchases, so I'm mad and glad at the same time. Secondly, some of you have decided reviews for this product are all paid because they are first time reviews. I'm going to accurately describe how this app works, so it doesn't matter if I'm paid or not. The fact is, I bought this directly from the Nektony website and wrote back to them saying how happy I was with it. They replied and asked me to leave my review here. Maybe that's why you have so many first time reviewers for this product. I just upgraded to Catalina and had a bunch of apps that no longer worked. I know how to manually delete apps, but just my scanner software took me over two hours to delete, and that method doesn't get some little sneaky files they hide here and there. I've read reviews about other cleaners and uninstallers where you push a button, stuff gets deleted, and then you find out programs don't work or all your music is gone. This app is great because you see every file before you delete it. When deleting apps, it shows you a list of apps in the left panel. Click on an app in the left panel and it shows you all the files and their paths in the right panel, already checked for deletion. You can uncheck any file you think you need to keep, or just hit the Remove button and it's done. Deleting files with duplicate names is brilliant. The file name appears once in the left panel, and it and all the duplicates appear in the right panel along with their paths. You decide which one to delete. It will NOT let you delete all of them. It forces you to leave at least one copy, so you can't screw up. If two files have the same name but are not the same file, it says "Not Duplicates" and doesn't allow you to delete. There's other operations, all designed for safety of your data. For the past year or more, every time I turn on my laptop, this popup says so and so wants to have control: Y/N. I finally found that stinking file with this app and got rid of it! I also got rid of some bad browser add-ons I didn't even know I had. For $10, this is a steal. Get it.
