3. Should I purchase this app?
Before answering this question, you should know some uninstall knowledge on Mac.
On a Mac, you can drag and drop an app into the Applications folder to get it installed. Meanwhile, you can drag and drop an app from the Applications folder to the Trash, and then delete it permanently in the Trash to get rid of the app from your Mac.
Things look so easy when you are trying to uninstall unwanted apps on Mac. And you may take it granted that there is no need to apply any removal tool on your Mac. However, many users neglect a fact that, deleting an app from Applications folder as well as the Trash does not guarantee a 100%, clean uninstall. Why say so? Well, most third-party apps will create associated files, like the preferences settings, cache, supporting plugins, and store them outside the installation directory. Well, those app leftovers will not be deleted automatically in the wake of the removal of the app.
Remaining on the hidden system directories, app leftovers take up certain (sometimes large) disk space, hinder a fresh re-install, or even cause conflict when you are trying to install another app with the same category. Statistically, most uninstall issues are caused by incomplete removal of app. To troubleshoot those issue, experienced users may know how to detect and remove app leftovers around the system (especially in the hidden ~/Library and /Library folders) by utilizing the Search feature in Finder, but for Mac beginners, the detection requires more energy and involves potential risk.
So here are the reasons why you need an automated uninstall tool: (1) to save the time wasted on hunting down app remnants in different system folders, (2) to avoid the risk of mistakenly deleting other unrelated items, and (3) to make the whole process of uninstalling unwanted apps more streamline, easy-to-operate, and high-efficient.
From our perspectives, it could be a wise choice to utilize a reputable tool like Osx Uninstaller, especially when you get stuck in some uninstall issues or if you prefer to save time in accomplishing that kind of tasks. Again, does it good to use? After giving it a try, you could make your decision whether Osx Uninstaller is right for you.
