    "Originally release as freeware"

    August 3, 2012  |   By throost

    Version: TrashMe 2.1.2

    Pros

    Originally released as free software

    Cons

    I won't buy an app that was originally released as free software. It's a matter of integrity.

    "Brilliant app, but at $6.99, it's not free, CNET"

    August 6, 2011  |   By bazlane

    Version: TrashMe 2.0.1

    Pros

    Efficient and reliable way to delete apps and their related files.

    Cons

    None at all, except CNET says it's still free, but it's actually $6.99. It's worth a lot more than that, so download it and let the developer benefit from his excellent work.

    Summary

    Just drag the app you want deleted to the TrashMe icon and it will locate the other files associated with it and send them all to the trash at the click of your mouse. You can either proceed with the deletion or not. Never had a problem with this app and I've used it a lot to clear my HD.

    "Adequate and functional."

    December 29, 2010  |   By The_Defenestrator

    Version: TrashMe 1.5.1

    Pros

    It deletes applications and related files/folders better than simply dragging an app to the trash. Fairly intuitive, and also can clean out preference panes, widgets, and apps in the download folder.

    Cons

    It missed a few obvious folders of a few programs that I ended up deleting manually.

    Summary

    Better and more effective than simply dragging and dropping apps directly to trash.

    "Easy & Free App Deletion"

    September 20, 2010  |   By theothersparky

    Version: TrashMe 1.4.3

    Pros

    It's free, and works well as an app deleter/preference pane remover.

    Cons

    It can be a bit time-consuming to delete a bunch of apps/widgets this way, but, that said, it is free so I'm not complaining. One note: you may have some problems when you empty the trash, depending on the nature of the file(s) you are removing.

    Summary

    Excellent fast free app/preference remover for anyone with some mac experience. Novices or people worried about accidental deletions may want to buy something like Amnesia instead.

    "USELESS"

    May 29, 2010  |   By roro01

    Version: TrashMe 1.3

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    It can only search for related items in the user's library Application Support and Preferences. It cannot find items in the main HD library, invisible items and even items elsewhere in the user's library. Therefore, it is only useful for trashing simple small applications. This application would have been perfect if it could have searching abilities like the application Find Any File i.e if it could find items related to an application anywhere on the machine and whether visible or not.

    As long as this application would not be able to find ALL the items belonging to the application to be trashed it will continue to be useless. My suggestion to the developer is to use the "Sherlock" program as a search engine, this way TrashMe will be able to find items related to an application anywhere on the machine and whether visible or not.
