"Well-written but pricey."
Version: Amnesia 1.2.3
Nice, easy to use interface that scans well and gives many options for uninstalling.
Only dislike is price: you can achieve pretty much the same with trash me and Onyx.
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.

nothing wrong to my observation

There are several applications out there that claim to do a more complete job of deleting apps from OS X along with the related support files that often get left behind if one merely moves an unwanted application to the trash. Amnesia, at $19.95, is the most expensive of these dedicated app "uninstallers". So what does it do that the other don't do? Well it has an "untouchables" list that will keep you from mistakenly deleting an app. It also has a couple other options like rebuilding the Launch Services after removal (a pretty good idea actually) that come in handy.
Ok, so aside from the extra options that may be handy, just how good is it at its core job... deleting apps and their support files? In a nutshell... it is no better than the rest. At all. Every app uninstaller I've tried has failed to delete some related files/folders found in /Library/Application Support. A folder created by Firefox named "Mozilla" is one example, but there are quite a few others. Additionally, most of these apps are incapable of deleting the support files for other users on your system if the files are in their user Library. Amnesia is equally incapable in all these respects. In fact, the only one I've found that will scrub all user Libraries is TinkerTool System, but even it misses the same files/folders in /Library that the others miss.
So bottom line... if you have a single user system; are possibly clumsy enough to accidentally select an app for deletion when you know you'd never ever ever want to do so, yet have the foresight to add it to the "untouchables" list; and are willing to pay more than double the cheapest alternative, then Amnesia may be for you.
