Editors' review

When emptying a Mac's trash can, some items may be locked, which prevents removal. Trash It! for Mac is a basic program that forces the trash can to completely empty, but has no additional features and is not a useful program.

Trash It! for Mac is available as a free application. The program downloaded quickly, but there was no installer for the program. Instead of having one program that worked with all Mac OS X versions, the download included two separate folders, one for version 10.8 and one for earlier versions. There were no technical support or user instructions available, but the program had no menu and was easy to use. After the user opens the folder for the appropriate operating system version, there is an icon in the folder to initiate the program. Double-clicking it brings up one menu that allows the user to perform the delete function quickly, or have the program complete it slowly for complete operation. Clicking the fast option during testing emptied the items in the trash can quickly, as the application advertised. Unfortunately, the program had no other function or purpose.

While the program may have some use for a small number of users with locked items in their computer trash, Trash It! for Mac offers no additional functions that would be of use to most Mac users.

    Version: Trash It! 5.2

    Pros

    So fassst.

    Cons

    Disappears sometimes.

    Summary

    This app has worked so effectively for me, I don't know anyone who isn't interested in saving time and using it in more constructive way somewhere else, waiting for the mac to erase the trash is tedious? The speed of this app. is commendable ...

    "Fast and Easily"

    Version: Trash It! 5.2

    Pros

    Does its job fast and easy, there is no need to fiddle around with different terminal commands until you finally get rid of an obnoxious and maybe malicious file in a thumb drive, mem card, external device and even your main HHD.

    Cons

    It force installs itself onto the desktop - Where it is convenient - but should give you options.

    Version: Trash It! 5.2

    Pros

    I wanted to empty iMac trash in order to free up a flash drive whose contents I had transferred to the iMac Trash. One item refused to delete until I downloaded and used Trash It. Problem solved immediately. A very good app to have up ones sleeve !

    Cons

    None that I know

    Summary

    Strongly recommend it.
