TrashMe is a powerful apps uninstaller with other great useful tools to clean your Mac.
You've probably ever thought that an application only needs to be moved to your Trash to get uninstalled?

Works on everything but Microsoft Software
This uninstaller is simple and effective for everything I have attempted to uninstall but for Microsoft Office. There is a Preference setting for allowing the app to delete "protected" software but even after deselecting it, the result is the same with Microsoft. Microsoft really should release their own uninstall tool. It's unacceptable that they don't since they liter one's system with a massive number of files. One wonders why macOS itself doesn't have this feature built into its Utilities app given that dragging items to the trash will rarelly uninstall apps completely.
Finally! An uninstaller that works!
For almost two years, I’ve had four items (from my time machine files that I fouled up) stuck in my Trash. Even an Apple tech was unable to empty them. With TrashMe, I simply did a “select all” of the Trash files and moused them over into the TrashMe Box. Click…and they were gone!
Then I moved an Application that I wanted to be rid of into TrashMe’s uninstallation box, and it dumped not just the program, but everything associated with it (preferences, extensions, etc.).
I’m amazed that the program cost only $5.99. It erases programs, files, and items that even Tech Tool can’t handle!
Developer Response ,
Many thanks for your comment ;-)
One of the best ever! Really!
TrashMe (with its small file that one can download from the Developer’s site installed!) is arguably one of the only apps that can delete a lot of files that other undeletion apps just can’t…. I did extensive tests to see how safe its algorithm for deletion of files is and what files were left behind and how many files the app can competently delete compared with almost all the rest. It is a five star app. With a broad range of tools to do other things that keep your Mac tidy without compromising safety to your data or onboard apps, TrashMe is one of the best!
