Uninstallers accuracy

We’ve started to develop our best-seller TrashMe in 2010. Since then, we’ve drastically improved the algorithm to be as accurate as possible when searching for related files to delete. Because our customers don’t want to remove critical files from their system. Because our customers want to rely on an accurate search engine.

Some uninstallers are not so accurate. For example, we compared TrashMe to iTrash when uninstalling CloudApp application (see picture below). At first glance, iTrash gives us more results: 10 files instead of 5 files for TrashMe. But look at the results: even with the “Expert mode” disabled, iTrash is inaccurate, listing some critical files used for Apple iCloud settings. 5 files among the 10 files founds are completely wrong.

We’ve tried uninstalling other applications and found similar issue: when uninstalling Adobe Illustrator, TrashMe is finding 5 related files where iTrash is finding 34 files offering us to remove all Adobe settings (Photoshop, Acrobat…) !

So, be careful, always choose an uninstaller with high accuracy.
TrahsMe is only 6,99 US$, available on the Mac App Store.

TrashMe 2.1.6 has been released

Today, we’re pleased to announce a new release for our uninstaller “TrashMe”. This new 2.1.6 version is mostly a bug-fixing release : all glitches occurring on 10.9 Mavericks are now fixed and we’ve improved scrollbars. In addition, we’ve also implemented a better algorithm to find related files (more files will be found) and a new setting is now available to auto-close TrashMe after uninstalling an application.

And don’t forget to download our free add-on in order to delete files requiring admin password.

Licone will support color tagging

We’ve just added a new cool feature to Licone, our upcoming icon manager: you’ll be able to choose a color tag for any icon.

Let’s say you want to keep track of all your blue icons. Just tag them with the Blue Tag in contextual menu or system menu, then a small blue bullet will be added on the left side of icon name (you need to show icon names first). Now, create a search, and choose “Tag > Blue” as a criteria, and you’ll get all your tagged icons, no-matter what collection they belong to.

Licone is almost ready for final release. You can still sign-up for our Beta Test program here.

Creating folder icon with Licone

Our upcoming application Licone entered beta test few weeks ago. Today, we’d like to show you a nice feature that will be available in upcoming beta release (don’t forget to sign-up for our beta test program).

We’ve added an “Engrave” mode when you’re creating a custom folder icon. Just drop any image (better is a black & white PNG image), and check the “Engrave” box. Then, you’ll be able to create beautiful folder icon, similar to OS X default icon.
