Improvements in TrashMe 3.4

Today we are launching an important update for our cleaner and uninstaller for macOS, TrashMe 3, with many new features, improvements and bug fixes. This version 3.4 is free and recommended for all our users.


Instead of deleting the duplicates one by one, you can now apply the same deletion rule to all of the duplicates found. The selection of files to delete can be viewed at any time at the bottom right of the window.

System updates

The dashboard will now display a badge on the macOS icon to let you know how many system updates are available. This is the best way not to miss any important updates. A single click on the macOS icon will bring up System Preferences for updating.

Keyboard shortcuts

We’ve added the ability to assign a custom keyboard shortcut to quickly open the smart mode menu, and thus take a quick look at the health of your Mac. In addition, it is now possible to use the shortcut Cmd + F to search in a list of files and Cmd + I to display information about an app.

General improvements

We have improved the uninstallation of apps by improving the algorithm for detecting related files and highlighting potentially related files (these are unchecked by default). Other improvements include Smart Mode, app updates and orphans.

Brand new dashboard in TrashMe 3

Our cleaner and uninstaller for macOS, TrashMe 3, has just been released with a brand new dashboard, many improvements and several bug fixes. This update 3.3.2 is free and recommended for all our users.

New dashboard

In this version, we’ve completely revamped the dashboard to show more information, like in our Smart Mode. Now you can get detailed information about your system Disk, your processor, battery, memory, network, accessories and macOS version. We feature two modes: basic information (default) with only some essential information, and Advanced information.

S.M.A.R.T information

We now display information about the health of your main disk. S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) is a monitoring system included in computer hard disk drives (HDDs), solid-state drives (SSDs) and eMMC drives. Its primary function is to detect and report various indicators of drive reliability with the intent of anticipating imminent hardware failures. In the new dashboard, advanced mode, we’re showing the S.M.A.R.T. status of your disk, its health and its temperature. You can get more information by clicking the “INFO” button.

Improvements and bug fixes

We’ve improved the function that searches for apps updates, to be more reliable. We’ve also fixed several bugs like Finder error messages, accent color on new iMac M1 and missing localization strings.

Major update to TrashMe 3

Today, we’re very happy to announce a major update to our cleaner and uninstaller for macOS, TrashMe 3. This version 3.3 includes a new “Extensions” section, a completely redesigned Smart Mode and dozen of improvements and fixes.

Redesigned Smart Mode

The Smart Mode of TrashMe 3 is an extension located in the system menu bar, with three main features: automatically detect any app you put in the Trash, in order to uninstall it properly; display an alert when the Trash is full; monitor the health of your Mac, like processor activity, memory usage, battery and network status, or even disk available space.

With TrashMe 3.3, we’ve completely redesigned the Smart Mode with a gorgeous user interface that fits macOS Big Sur standard. We’ve also added more information in the Network and Memory sections and a new “Graphics” section to monitor the state of the graphic card in use. Last, you can now customize the shortcuts at the bottom of the menu, to launch your favorite apps.

Uninstall all your extensions

We’ve added a separate new section to list all extensions installed on your Mac: preference panes, plugins, screen savers, Safari extensions and widgets. Similarly to our app uninstaller feature, you can now easily remove any extension from your system.

Widgets for macOS Big Sur

Recently, we’ve introduced two widgets for macOS Big Sur. The first one will monitor your disk usage, memory usage and battery status. The other one will monitor the battery status of your Mac, bluetooth accessories and even your AirPods! The appearance of these widgets can be customized and macOS Dark mode is fully supported.

This update is free for all users of TrashMe 3.
To celebrate this release, we offer a 20% discount on the full edition, for a limited time only.

10 best widgets for macOS Big Sur

At the end of 2020, Apple released a major new version of its operating system: macOS Big Sur. This version introduces new wigdgets, that are completely different from the ones you might see in previous versions of macOS. They are still located in the notification center, but they now come in 3 different sizes so that you can choose the layout that suits you best.

How to display your widgets

To view your widgets, simply click the date or time at the top right of the screen, or swipe left from the right edge of the trackpad with two fingers.

How to manage your widgets

Open the notification center (see above) then click on the “Edit widgets” button at the bottom. The list of available widgets will then be displayed in the center. On the left, you can filter widgets by app or even search for a widget.

To add a new widget, simply click on the preview of the relevant widget and it will be added to your notification center (or click on the button ). The small symbols allow to toggle the preview of the widget in its different sizes. Note that not all widgets offer different sizes and the information displayed may vary from size to size.

Some widgets can be customized: when you are in edit mode, just click on an existing widget to display the options. When you are simply viewing the notification center, right-click on the widget to display a menu that will give you the option to choose the size, remove the widget or even display customization options.
You now know everything about the new widgets. Now we are going to bring you a list of the 10 best widgets for macOS Big Sur.

Welcome Apple Silicon M1

A few months ago, during the WWDC20 developer conference, Apple announced the arrival of new generation processors for Macs: Apple Silicon. These processors, derived from chips embedded in iPhone and iPad, then promise increased performance and reduced energy consumption.

The promise was kept quickly. A few weeks ago, Apple announced the first processor in this range: Apple M1. The MacBook Air and MacBook Pro 13-inch are the first to benefit from these chips.

However, this change also implies the return of universal apps, capable of running both on an Intel processor and on an Apple Silicon processor. This situation is well known to older Mac users: when Apple abandoned the PowerPC architecture in favor of Intel, universal apps then appeared. Those that had not been updated could continue to work thanks to Rosetta, an engine that translated PowerPC code into Intel code.

Today, we are in the same situation: Apple offers Rosetta 2 for Macs with an Apple M1 processor. Rosetta 2 allows you to run apps that have not yet been adapted to Apple Silicon.

At Jibapps, we have of course decided to adapt all our apps to these new processors. Today, we are proud to release a new universal version of TrashMe 3, which therefore runs natively on both Intel processors and Apple M1 processors.

Our other apps will be updated in the coming weeks.

TrashMe 3 now available on the Mac App Store

We’re very proud to announce that TrashMe 3, our cleaner and uninstaller for macOS, is now available on the Mac App Store. Version 3 of TrashMe has been launched few months ago with a new modern user interface, an improved speed in all tasks and many new features like a duplicate finder, a disk overview and menubar extension to monitor the health of your Mac.

We promised a release of TrashMe 3 on the Mac App Store before the end of the year, and here it is. This version has the same set of features than the regular version available on our webstore. However, due to Apple restrictions, we’ve been forced to adapt the app a little bit (check the differences in our Frequently Asked Questions).

Along with this announcement, we offer a new version 3.1.1 for all our users. This new version adds an history of all cleaning actions and improves the speed of the uninstaller tool. We’ve also fixed several issues reported back.

To celebrate the release of TrashMe 3 on the Mac App Store, we offer a discount for a limited time!

Announcing TrashMe 3

We’re very proud to annonce the release of TrashMe 3, a major version of our best-seller app for macOS. TrashMe 3 lets you clean your Mac and uninstall apps, with many new features and improvements.

Clean your Mac

TrashMe comes with advanced cleaning tools. You’ll be able to quickly identify junk files (large and old files, incomplete downloads, installer packages, Windows files…) and to clean system files like apps caches, Xcode files and orphaned files. Version 3 of TrashMe finds even more files than before, to let you recover more space on your Mac.

Manage your apps

TrashMe uninstaller algorithm has been perfected over the years to find almost all related files that need to be removed along with the app bundle. We’ve greatly improved speed and intuitiveness: TrashMe 3 will find related files 3 times faster than previous version and uninstall process is easier with less steps to remove an app. For apps you want to keep on your Mac, we added a “search for updates” feature, to regularly check for updates for all apps installed on your Mac, even those from the Mac App Store. And you can still manage a list of favorite apps to securely store registration information and documents.

Find duplicate files

It happens frequently that you duplicate documents or photos, without even modifying the copy. These versions pile up on your hard drive to the point that they sometimes take up a lot of space. TrashMe allows you to scan a folder for duplicates so that you can compare all versions and then decide which ones should be removed.

Get an overview of your disk usage

Another new feature of TrashMe 3 is an interactive map that lets you visually discover the space occupied by files and folders on your Mac. Navigate through the disk hierarchy, identify and select files and folders you don’t need anymore, and TrashMe will delete them for you.

Monitor your system

Our Smart Mode feature lets you monitor your system activity, like CPU load & temperature, memory usage, battery status, network configuration… right in your system menubar. Smart mode will also detect any app you put in the Trash to offer a clean uninstall, and will display an alert when your Trash is full.
TrashMe 3 is available today as a Free Download with a 15 days trial period.
People can buy it on our webstore with a special and limited launch price. It will also be available on the Mac App Store later this year. People having bought previous version of TrashMe can upgrade with a discounted price, whatever the version they own (Mac App Store or not).

TrashMe 2.1.16 available on our webstore

We’re releasing a new version of TrashMe, our uninstaller and cleaning tool for macOS. This new version 2.1.16 is recommended for everybody as we fixed some small annoying bugs. TrashMe now speaks Brazilian Portuguese too, thanks to Paulo Neto.

Starting today, TrashMe is available for direct purchase on our webstore, in addition to the Mac App Store version. The main difference is that the Mac Store version is a bit more limited as it requires installation of our free addon whereas the version available for direct purchase is fully functional even with apps requiring admin password to get uninstalled.

To celebrate the launch of TrashMe on our webstore, we offer a 20% discount with the coupon code TRASHME20. Hurry up, it’s only for a few days!

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.

TrashMe updated to version 2.1.14

Today, we’re pleased to release a new version 2.1.14 of our uninstaller TrashMe for macOS. The update is available on the Mac App Store and is recommended for everyone.

With this version, we wanted to update the user interface a little bit: flatter interface, redesigned icons, revamped subcategories for ‘locations’ and ‘tools’. We added the ability to delete any entry in history (instead of whole entries only) and you can search for files up to 2 GB in junk files section. We also fixed several bugs reported by users and we improved macOS Sierra (10.12) support.

For a limited time, you can buy TrashMe with a 25% discount!
