TrashMe 2.1.15 with Touch Bar and TouchID

We’ve just released a new version 2.1.15 of our uninstaller TrashMe for macOS with some new features and bug fixes. The update is available on the Mac App Store and is recommended for everyone.

First, we’ve implemented preliminary support for the Touch Bar introduced with latest MacBook Pro. This Touch Bar at the top of your keyboard adapts to what you’re doing and gives you intuitive shortcuts and app controls when you need them. With this version 2.1.15 of TrashMe, you can easily navigate through different parts of the app and perform some actions. For sure, we’ll improve Touch Bar support in next release.

Among other new features, you’ll find the ability to use TouchID to protect your favorite apps data. With MacBook Pro late 2016, Apple introduced their famous TouchID, a fingerprint reader used to unlock your Mac and make purchases. When available, we use TouchID instead of asking you to create a password.

Last, we’ve added a crash logs option in « Delete caches » tool, in order to easily remove all reports created by apps when they crash. We’ve also improved general usability, updated localizations and fixed some bugs reported by our fellow users.

Celebrating 6 years of TrashMe

In April 2010, we were launching our best-seller app, TrashMe, a powerful uninstaller for Mac. And one year later, TrashMe was available on the brand new Mac App Store launched by Apple.

We’ve constantly updated TrashMe during those 6 years. Many users contacted us to suggest new features and report bugs and we’d like to thank all of them. In the past few weeks, TrashMe development was focused on reliability: dozens of bugs have been fixed and we’ve improved search algorithm. But, we also added some nice features (get warning when your Trash is oversized, automatically close TrashMe after uninstallation, search for orphans…).

To say « Happy Birthday TrashMe », we’re offering today a new release 2.1.12, available on the Mac App Store. And as a bonus, TrashMe is 50% off for a limited time. Enjoy!

TrahsMe is only 3.99 US$, available on the Mac App Store (limited-time offer).

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 7.99 US$, available on the Mac App Store.

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

Why TrashMe does not uninstall some apps?

Many users are posting some comments on the Mac App Store about TrashMe being unable to uninstall apps. We also receive some emails about the same « issue », so we think it’s time to clarify this restriction a little bit more.

First, you need to know that publishing an application on the Mac App Store is something quite difficult, especially for small developers. Apple has written very restrictive rules that developers must conform to. One of these rules is about privileges: an application must not ask for user’s password in any case.

But some applications installed on your Mac have special privileges, mostly applications installed through the Mac App Store. You can test by yourself: if you try to put one of those apps to the Trash, OS X will ask for your account’s password. The problem is that TrashMe can’t ask for your password due to Apple restrictions. This is why you can see a warning message when this situation occurs. Hopefully, we’ve developed a small add-on that will allow you to uninstall this sort of applications, by asking your password.

We think this is a balanced solution: being on the Mac App Store is a chance for us, because it’s very easy to buy and update application for end-users. We didn’t find any alternative, after many hours spent to discuss with Apple employees. So, we hope our customers will understand that this is not an issue, but « on-purpose »…

Check our Frequently Asked Questions to download this add-on.

We’ve also fixed some cosmetic bugs and some issues with history (search was not working and sort order was ascending instead of descending). Among improvements, we’ve added spanish translation (thanks to Jose Manuel Calero) and related files results are now showing filesize.

TunesArt will be updated soon

TunesArt did not receive any update for almost one year, but we did not give up our iTunes companion. We’re currently preparing an update, with some visible enhancements and some other invisible improvements.

First, upcoming version will be sandboxed, as requested by Apple for any update on the Mac App Store since 1st June 2012. This part was not so easy, because we needed to test all parts of our application, in order to detect possible issues. For end-user, this does not change anything except that he feels more secure 🙂

TunesArt version 1.6 will also be fully compatible with OS X Mountain Lion, as some issues are occurring with version 1.5.1 (mostly when you switch from one space to another one). In addition, all the application will be optimized for Retina display of new MacBook Pro, and that was a lot of work.

Among new features, TunesArt will be able to use the notification center found in Mountain Lion, the search window will be revamped for better performance, many UI parts will be improved and many bugs will be fixed. Arrival on the Mac App Store was not really easy because Apple asked us to remove fetching of lyrics from LyricWiki. We did not find any affordable replacement, as the cheapest solution would cost 25,000 $USD per year. We’re aware many users are disappointed about this lack of lyrics fetching, but there will be a small new feature in upcoming version (you’ll have to find it by yourself!).

We hope most users will be happy with this brand new version, so stay tuned, it’s coming very soon!
