Editors' review

If you've ever installed a new program, then realized you installed it in the wrong folder, this handy utility may be the perfect tool for you.

Application Mover efficiently takes the contents of any folder and moves them to a user-specified area elsewhere on your hard drive. The easy-to-understand interface makes using the program a breeze. Specify the folder your program or files are in and where you'd like everything moved to, and you're set. Other options include a thorough search of the registry and shortcuts, which are all changed automatically if chosen. Users also can request an update to the installer logs. These functions are all recommended, along with the confirmation once complete.

As simple as Application Mover makes the process seem, we still recommend that you understand what's going on behind the scenes before moving application directories. But if you're confident that you know what you're doing, Application Mover can help make the move much easier.

    "Works great."

    February 05, 2014   |   By S1lent Echoes

    Version: Application Mover 4.2

    Pros

    Works as advertised, perfect for those applications that just don't give you an option to specify which directory you want the installation to go to.

    Cons

    None that I have ran into yet.

    "Great but annoying if re-installing."

    May 23, 2012   |   By JustRosy

    Version: Application Mover 4.2

    Pros

    Does what it says. Is simple enough to use. Even moves shortcuts to correct shortcut folders (you have to create those first). Worth $15, at least.

    Cons

    The paid installer is separate from the free demo program. It's a limited time download, so if years later you need to re-install the program for any reason, you have to remember the name of the installation program (assuming you backed that up) after downloading it, because you can't just re-download it later from the same place. You can't log in to their site to re-download it if you need to, and it's not part of the free demo (like it is with nearly all other shareware). They do email you the username and passcode for the paid installer that you must use after the trial period ends, but that's of no use if you can't find the original paid installer in your backups because you can't remember what it was called.

    Summary

    Worth the money, but until they include the paid installer with the "free trial period has ended" screen, asking for the username and passcode, the $15 is all it'll ever be worth. You get something like 10 uses and then it just stops working. I'm an unhappy customer because of this and I'm being forced now to look for other (possibly completely free) solutions.

    "Excellent app for the moderate to experienced techie"

    May 15, 2011   |   By Cerbegor

    Version: Application Mover 4.2

    Pros

    It works, and it works well. I've used this for years and have been very happy with it.

    Cons

    The UI (User Interface) has some problems that make using this program a challenge for inexperienced users, and there is a bug in the UI that's been there for ages but can easily be worked around.

    Summary

    If you consider yourself at least modestly technical (using a computer doesn't count as technical), give this program a chance you'll end up finding int an invaluable tool. Well worth the $15 asking price.

    Once again, not for novices.

    "'Trial period has expired' - refuses to function."

    April 26, 2011   |   By csomervi

    Version: Application Mover 4.2

    Pros

    Did a creditable job of moving apps, even from one drive letter to another (older version).

    Cons

    Current version refuses to work unless you pay money. ('Trial has expired')

    Summary

    too bad - it used to be a useful program.

    "Trial period expired"

    March 19, 2011   |   By PeterParslow

    Version: Application Mover 4.2

    Pros

    Looks good on paper

    Cons

    Doesn't do anything. What I mean is the advertised free trial period doesn't exist anymore - I downloaded & installed it. On first (and subsequent) run it says "free trial period has expired".

    Summary

    The free trial seems to be a thing of the past.
