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.
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.
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.
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.

Few weeks ago, Apple announced the new version of macOS coming this fall: Catalina. Since 2014, Apple names macOS after California locations and version 10.15 refers to Santa Catalina Island, located just 35 kilometers off the Southern California coast.
Catalina will offer some neat features:
- New Music, TV and podcasts apps, replacing iTunes
- Improved Notes and Reminders apps
- Sidecar lets you extend your workspace by using your iPad as a second display
- Screen Time is giving you greater insight into how you’re spending your time
And behind the scenes, macOS Catalina will come with enhanced security features to better protect macOS against tampering, help ensure that the apps you use are safe, and give you greater control over access to your data. This is what impacts our apps most.
We immediately started to test and adapt all ours apps to be fully compatible with Catalina when it will be released. New security features affect many functions in our apps, because you’re now requested to give new permissions in Catalina: accessing files in your Documents, Desktop and iCloud folders, capturing keyboard activity or a photo/video of your screen. For example, taking screenshots for the first time with our app Displays will pop-up a system dialog asking your permission to take screenshots. We’ve also reworked some functions to avoid unnecessary permission dialogs.
Our iTunes & Spotify companion, TunesArt, offers a different challenge: iTunes is not available anymore on macOS Catalina. But don’t worry, the new Music app is quite similar to iTunes and we’ve successfully adapted TunesArt to it.
Today, we’re pleased to release a new version 2.1.13 of our uninstaller TrashMe for Mac OS X. The update is available on the Mac App Store and is recommended for everyone as it fixes a crash occurring on some configuration when listing apps. This version also improves performance and overall stability of the app. We’re tracking every bug reported by user, so don’t hesitate to contact us if you noticed an issue.

We’ve just released the first update for Displays, our monitors manager for Mac OS X. Displays 1.1 is now available on the Mac App Store as a free update. It’s recommended for all users, as we fixed several bugs.
We also added some new features. As requested by users, you can now hide resolutions you don’t want to see in main menu (go to Labels tab in Preferences). Last, we added some settings for PiP windows to manage position and level. Read full changelog here.
We’d like to thank all our first users for their enthusiasm and their great support. Anybody can suggest new features and ideas thanks to our contact page. New features will be added in upcoming release, so stay tuned!
