Editors' Review

+

If you're looking for a Mac uninstaller with a little extra under the hood, CleanApp offers all the features you need to get rid of unwanted apps once and for all.

With CleanApp, you drag and drop apps to the interface, and then you can view them and their associated files before you decide what to do. But unlike other uninstall utilities for Mac, CleanApp offers a few extras across the top of the interface, so you can zero in on what you want to uninstall. The Applications button displays all installed apps; a System Accessories button lets you sift through files like plug-ins and screensavers; and under the More Features button you can quickly find and remove unused files, language packages, and old cache files.

One of our favorite features of CleanApp is its "Install Logging" option. It's a background task that records when you install new software, so you (and CleanApp) can be absolutely sure all associated files get the boot when you decide to uninstall them.

Overall, CleanApp has a nice feature set and does a thorough job of eradicating unwanted apps from your hard drive. With its drag-and-drop interface and added extras for getting rid of other junk files, it's easy to recommend CleanApp to any Mac user.

"Does a good job of eliminating associated files"

October 23, 2010  |  By JerryWilcox

 |  Version: CleanApp 3.4.3

Pros

I don't have any files related to deleted applications left behind

Perhaps a bit aggressive. I usually end up with quite a few files in the list that have to be researched.

"Does what it suppose to do..."

February 20, 2010  |  By msw66

 |  Version: CleanApp 3.3.2

Pros

Very effective and a good overall complete package

Cons

A little complicated when cleaning out apps. Sometimes it doesn't give you enough information and therefore confidence that what you are about to delete is safe to get rid of.

Summary

An app that doe deliver but one that also makes you think before you just start deleting associated files with the main app. Clearing out unneeded files associated with the main app. resulted in major gains of HD space. But, I took some guesses that it was safe for me to continue. Would be nicer if it was more through and instilled confidence that it was okay to continue.

"It works in 10.6.2"

January 23, 2010  |  By Willcro

 |  Version: CleanApp 3.2.3

Pros

It works as advertised. It has a nice help file. It offers a widget, if you care to install it.

Cons

Nothing found so far.

Summary

I compared this to the AppZapper and chose this one, even though it was $2.05 more expensive. The additional features were worth it to me. I was wondering about the bank charging a surcharge for a foreign transaction since this company is in Germany, which did not happen because they use a stateside service. The company provides the registration number on the receipt so there is no misunderstanding or waiting. The extra language removal feature emptied almost 500MB of files that I will never use. I like this one and highly recommend it to anyone who does a lot of loading, evaluating, and removal of files.
