Can someone explain the utility of this app? I don't understand the need or desire to remove .pkg files.

#1) The way I understand it, .pkg files are either installers, or receipts left by installers. The receipts are used by Software Update, et al, to determine what software you have installed (and what version) to help determine what updates you need. So is this app meant to remove installers you have laying around, or remove the .pkg receipts? If it's the latter, shouldn't you keep these files?

#2) What I would like is an application that read .pkg receipts to perform a complete uninstall of an application installed via a .pkg and Installer.app. Does this app do that? It doesn't seem to, but that's something that OS X could really use. (I don't know why it's not a function of Installer.app already.)

Thanks in advance.

I've been using Toast through all of its ups and downs (and corporate parents) for 15 years this year, and I can honestly say I've never been happier with it than I am now -- with the 11.1 (1067) update on Mountain Lion. Going Cocoa is a very commendable move for such a long-standing Mac app. It's very easy for these long-time Mac apps to maintain their legacy code, and just update the minimum to keep current. The feature set and performance are truly world-class, and I find it to be an indispensable addition to any Mac I use for multimedia purposes. Not every version of Toast would earn 5 stars in my book, but this one does. It's a bargain at $99.
