Pearcleaner overview

Pearcleaner is an open-source app cleaner inspired by Freemacsoft's AppCleaner and Sun Knudsen's Privacy Guides post on his app-cleaner script.

Features
  • 100% Swift
  • Super small app size (1.6MB)
  • Quick file search
  • Optional Sentinel monitor helper that can be enabled to watch Trash folder for deleted apps
  • Sentinel monitor is extremely small (210KB) and uses <=5mb of ram to run in the background and file watch. Communicates to app via custom url scheme instead of xpc to keep things even lighter
  • Requires Full Disk permission to search for files and also Accessibility to delete/restore files

  • Deleting app bundle only from file list left user on empty page instead of returning to default view

Although this is version 3.4.1, I had not seen or tried this one before, odd. I now use Trashme 3 and am very satisfied with it. I used Trashme and Pearcleaner side by side for a while and Trashme displayed more related files to delete in 9 out of 10 times. So not very good I guess. Pearcleaner's interface isn't really for me either. Seems more like a Windows 11 program . Of course that is something personal. It is free though. But unfortunately does not work properly compared to other uninstallers like Trashme.

Not a review, but more like a query. I have been using the excellent program AppCleaner to remove applications I no longer want nor need. Wondering how this one, which is inspired by Freemacsoft's AppCleaner, compares with AppCleaner (also free). There are times where AppCleaner does not find every file associated with a app I want to remove, but I have that issue resolved. I just launch another excellent free app called EasyFind to find those other files. Works like a charm!
