App Cleaner & Uninstaller
by Antell1978 (– UK)
What I like about this app is that it removes documents etc, that you thought had been deleted when you originally deleted the app, but are still lurking on your hard drive; and as a consequence still using up memory. Therefore, it is well worth getting.

I wanted an app to help uninstall an application that installed stuff in more than just the applications folder. This app seems to have captured the extraneous stuff and deleted it. The interface was reasonably easy to follow and it has a feature for finding remnants of installations installed prior to this app and deleting those. It also has an “extensions” tab for finding the compressed application install files (the thing one originally would open up after downloading an app to install but this file in and of itself doesn’t always self-delete after an app installs), it will find iOS installation files which are useful if one installs apps from OSX to iOS device but if one doesn’t do this at all this app finds these and can remove these, it will find screensavers again if not used can be removed, and it has a launch agents and login items tabs, however, I do not know what these files are and thus if I would be safe to remove them. In short, it seems to be excellent at doing a more complete uninstall than you otherwise might achieve just by simply moving an app from the Applications folder to the trash. I give it 5 stars for doing what it says well, and because it appears the developer is maintaining his apps. I highly recommend immediately going to the Pro upgrade. The developer has a number of other apps including a duplicates finder, a sensible website, and as far as I can tell now though this could change, seems to be actively curating and updating their app collections.

This app is really helpful. It’s not intrusive and does the job with full satisfaction.

Extremely happy with the results – a thorough understanding of all parts of Mac application infrastructure and intelligent scanner allow this utility to do a superb job at cleaning out unwanted applications, without leaving a trace – freeing up a ton of space and keeping things tidy. I have tried many other similar utilities and am definitely very impressed with this one.

I looked around and found this app in the app store. After trying out to remove another software, this app found traces from previous software installed on Mac and removed all of them. I wanted to get the full version, purchased the Pro version and handy tool to have. You don’t have to take my words for it, try it out for yourself.

A must have application for MacBook, worth for every cent of money, could show all hidden installed within an application and let me decided to remove or keep it

Best way to keep your Mac clean from leftover files of unwanted apps.

Very satisfied. Clear, simple interface that informs you quite clearly of what it is going to delete (e.g. files associated with the application you plan to delete). Responsive.

The default method of removing unwanted apps simply does not work. It seems to leave quite a lot of “bits and bobs” from the original app install. App Cleaner and Uninstaller seems to remove all of this left-over dross. I don’t think you can ever be 100% sure that everything has been removed but I’m sure looks like it. Well worth the cost for the ease of removing apps. UPDATE (1 June 2017): Still using this app; it’s really useful. Regards, Peter

If you like to keep your Mac clean and free of junk files left over by apps you uninstalled, you need this app. Period. Not sure about the negative reviews. I have been using App Cleaner for over 2 years now. Never crashed even once.

Honestly, I hate junk files. This app is essential for those dependent on spotlight searches that will bring back more relevant results, as well as those who need to clear up memory for additional applications. Thanks.

Easy to use, nice interface and it certainly does seem to clean up everything on my Mac. Nice work!

Securely removing unwanted apps and files doesn’t have to be complicated. With it’s super easy to use interface, remove files with confidence.

I’ve managed Macs, uninstalled applications manually through the command line searching, Unix find/grep/sed/awk style, tried pretty much every utility that “uninstalls” Mac applications and this is the best I have found, hands down. I’ve done direct comparisons and it’s found files and folders that my other go-tos have not. Not only does it uninstall applications and all their associated files, it goes a step beyond and gives you the option to manage your startup items (not the simple login items menu listing in system preferences) and system extensions. These parts are huge as these actually affect how your Mac runs, speed and stability wise. Unfortunately, they’re also the most mysterious to manage and change continuously with each version of OS X. One last thing I’ll say that the support is top notch. I experienced an issue and received a personalized response from their support in about 4 hours that completely resolved my issue. Not only did it resolve my issue, but it went above and beyond to explain the technical details of the issue (as a techie, I appreciate this) and also did something for me personally to make sure I could continue accomplishing my goal. I do not post reviews often, but I did not expect this level quality and the amazing support. Nektony truly did impress me. People, it’s worth the friggin 4 bucks for the Pro version too. I’m not sure why some people scoff at spending a few dollars for an app that will affect them in a positive way every day but they have no problem at buying a 7 dollar coffee. Trust me, this app is worth it.

Fast. Clean. Simple.

This is a must have for all users. It is the Add / Remove programs that Mac OS does not have. Yes, there is a way to drag an icon and uninstall an app without this. However, while that works most of the time, it does not work all of the time, and it does not get everything an app leaves behind. This gets it all and keeps your MAC OS in new shape.
