Don't get lost!
Have you ever unsuccessfully tried to get rid of a program and all the files that came with it? Are logfiles, plists and caches cluttering folders and volumes on your Mac? Don't you ask yourself from time to time where the multiple gigabytes of hard disk space continuously vanish to? — Uninstall, archive, backup and analysis… CleanApp analyzes, archives and removes applications and on your Mac, complete with all relevant files.
Our brand-new version 3 of CleanApp now gained in power and efficiency: requiring less memory and CPU than the predecessor, CleanApp 3 reliably tracks the most complex installations and quickly presents the user with a comprehensive listing of all information gathered so far.
CleanApp's »Logging Service« is our custom-designed mechanism to meticulously record all acitivies of applications on your Mac. This component has been updated, leveraging Apple's recommended programming architecture. CleanApp 3 is now completely »Leopard«-compliant and runs smoothly on Mac OS X 10.5. To maintain backwards compatibility, we still fully support Mac OS X 10.4 »Tiger«.
Our entirely new GUI design comprises much of the feedback and suggestions we received from our users. CleanApp 3 has become even easier to handle and configure thanks to this new graphical user interface.
CleanApp 3: Start Screen
Don't be controlled — be in control!
CleanApp, our powerful system management application for Mac OS X, does all this — but avoids the cryptic annoyances many of us know from command line administration tools. CleanApp 3 boosts a redesigned graphical user interface. With its new status display CleanApp 3 presents constantly updated information on file and program access, tracked by its own Logging Service. The updated CleanApp Dashboard widget further speeds up system maintenance.

Why does Mac OS X need an Uninstaller?
Already on installation, and even more so during normal use, application programs and utilities under Mac OS X tend to create a multitude of files and folders all over the system: user settings, temporary and log files, …. Unfortunately, even removing software from the "Applications" folder won't eliminate those obsolete files, and they continue to waste precious space on your storage media.
Enter CleanApp and its »Logging Service«: without slowing down any of the installations it records, CleanApp creates a database, analyzing applications and their behaviour right from the start. At any given moment, you will be able to see whatever files a program uses.
CleanApp also keeps an eye on deletion processes. So, whenever you move an application to the Trash manually, you'll be greeted with an interactive dialogue to invoke a comprehensive list of all related files you might want to get rid of too.
Complete Uninstallation thanks to CleanApp's logging tool
Our unique Logging Service invariably monitors all data being created. This component debuted in CleanApp 2 and has been completely rewritten for this third release. Track down all changes programs caused on your system. This mechanism allows you to virtually "undo" also very complex installations at any given moment.
CleanApp 3 builds on »launchd«, Apple's recommended programming architecture for background processes, and allowed us to add another important improvement: you may shut down and even restart Logging at any moment during runtime, without the need to reboot your Mac. Along the way we dramatically improved CleanApp's efficiency. CleanApp 3 uses less memory and cpu cylces than its already hugely popular predecessor.

High-Res search on the Fast Lane
CleanApp performs a direct Spotlight-enabled search for all programs installed on your hard drive and displays them in a complete list, sorted by the moment they were used for the last time. With a single click, this powerful search algorithm enables you to find applications and tools you may only have used once and which now occupy valuable hard disk space.
Clean-up, but don't get dusted!
While inspecting your system and removing unwanted programs and their files, CleanApp also thoroughly monitors places often neglected: System Preferences, Widgets, Screen Savers, … CleanApp locates language packages and extensions of various applications, the so called "Plug-ins", too. All search results are displayed in a verbose and easily understandable list from which you may directly delete them, one-by-one or globally.

Don't take any risk
Another very handy safety feature is CleanApp's ability to exclude specific files and entire folders from all deletion processes. A flexible selection also allows you to predefine language packages to be either deleted or kept for applications on your system.
To delete … or rather – not?!
You certainly don't want to delete software by mistake which may have laborously been installed and maintained over a long time. Such installations are probably the foundation of your business, or they simply contain a priceless wealth of personal data. Before completely removing such installations from your system, CleanApp can save everything in a well maintained order to a compact and portable archive. If you later change your mind…, or simply decide to reinstall, CleanApp does exactly that and restores the everything meticulously to its previous state.
