AppTrap installs a daemon that runs in the background monitoring the trash, when you drag an app to the trash it will search for associated .plist files that have been left behind and ask to move them to the trash. In other words, AppTrap launches and does the work for you automatically. All you have to do is uninstall apps the old fashioned mac way by dragging apps to the trash. See More
Hazel watches whatever folders you tell it to, automatically organizing your files according to the rules you create. Have Hazel move files around based on name, date, type, what site/email address it came from (Safari and Mail only) and much more. Automatically put your music in your Music folder, movies in Movies. Keep your downloads off the desktop and put them where they are supposed to be. See More
To really enjoy the power of Hazel, you will need to progressively create more and more rules to manage each specific kind of file, but this process is slow, quite annoying when you have many similar rules, and can only be learned on the way, as you find new uses for it. See More
Apparently, for this company, the term "one-time" means "until we decide to change the version number and re-charge you"! A previously bought Pro license for the previous version of the application worked fine for a couple of years until upgrading to macOS Big Sur. The previous version no longer worked and the application wanted to install the latest one. The app no longer accepted the original license key, saying that it was valid only for the "old" version and prompting the purchase a new license, at full cost ($19.90, €21.90) obviously. See More
The app failed to clean up all remnants when trying to remove a full installation of Xcode, found out after trying to re-install just the Developer CLI tools and the installation would fail by stating that Xcode is already installed. The situation was resolved by following a guide found on Github for manually removing Xcode, which fortunately worked. For certain applications whose installation is tightly coupled to the operating system, the "App Cleaner & Uninstaller" app should detect them and use specifically customized unistallation scripts, instead of relying on their generic scanning algorithms only.
