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.

"Just Download and Use It"

October 13, 2014  |  By justin_boston

 |  Version: Trash It! 5.2

Pros

First, the review missed a lot of things that even a newbie such as myself saw immediately. It doesn't have an installer because it's an AppleScript app, not an OSX or IOS app. It also has an extensive readme file. It:
Supports Drag 'n Drop for items you CAN'T move to the trash can;
The ReadMe file gives you detailed information for every scenario;
The developer has all the contact info you need in the readme file with step-by-step instructions;
This is an AppleScript application. If you don't know the difference between AppleScript apps and a regular Apple Store app, then read the readme;
The only reason the developer includes previous versions is that Apple makes deleting files/folders a chore in each version. The developer now has ONE app for 10.6 and higher. How do I know? I emailed him and asked.
It's FREE!
It's an Applescript App so it's got a tiny footprint and it's fast!

Cons

The only CON is CNET's review. If you don't know how to use drag 'n drop, or how to open a readme file, STOP using any and all programs and take your hands off the keyboard. Seriously, this was a personal attack on a very simple, useful program.

Summary

Did I mention it's free? And the developer actually responds to inquiries? And it works? It REALLY works. CNET needs to re-review this AppleScript app for what it actually is and not for what they think it is.

 |  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"

December 27, 2013  |  By joseary15

 |  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.

"Just what I needed"

November 09, 2013  |  By cstreatfield

 |  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.
