Editors' Review

Amnesia is a shareware utility that can help you completely uninstall applications from your Mac. Amnesia joins the ranks of similar apps that fill a functionality gap in Mac OS--the capability to completely delete software from your machine, not just the app file but also the many support files that apps often install in various places on your computer, including caches and log files.

The main interface of Amnesia lets you both search and browse through all your applications (as well as widgets, preference panes, screen savers, and plug-ins), and you can mark for removal any that you want to delete. Amnesia will then show you all the associated files it can find for the selected apps (your may mileage may vary here, as is common with this type of application) before performing the final uninstall. The app offers a nice extra feature at this point in the process, letting you backup software before you remove it, in case you change your mind later.

Overall, Amnesia is one of your better choices for this kind of app, with solid basic functionality and a lot of thoughtful extras (like Launch Services rebuild and the ability to omit Apple software from scans), all at a reasonable price.

"Well-written but pricey."

September 20, 2010  |  By theothersparky

 |  Version: Amnesia 1.2.3

Pros

Nice, easy to use interface that scans well and gives many options for uninstalling.

Cons

Only dislike is price: you can achieve pretty much the same with trash me and Onyx.

Summary

If you have to take care of other people's macs or are one of those frequent app changers, like me, then this is a great tool. 20 USD is a bit steep for scripts with a nice interface, though.
