icon AppCleaner 3.4

AppCleaner is an application which will easily allow you to deinstall your applications. It is not enough to put an application in the trash to remove it. Other small files are created by the application and unnecessarily fill up your hard disk. AppCleaner is able to find these small files and lets you remove your applications properly.

icon AppTrap 1.2.3

OK, here's a fairly simple idea: what if applications could be uninstalled as easily as they are installed, in other words, by drag-and-drop. Wait, I can already hear you say: "They can! By using x, y or z!". Well, nice try, sunshine!
Neither x, y or z are truly that simple, right? What can be considered the exact opposite of dragging an application to the Applications folder? Opening another application, dragging the unwanted application to that application, clicking a button, clicking another button, quitting? Nope!
The exact opposite would have to be... dragging the application to the trash. Ah, there you go! This is exactly what AppTrap does. Whenever you drag an application to the trash, a dialog window will pop up, asking if you want to delete the associated system files too. Simple as that.

Have you ever deleted images from your digital camera's memory card and needed them afterwards? In spring 2003 I ran into that problem after processing some images using a buggy shell script: About 35 of those files were gone and of course (remember Murphy's Law) I had deleted the camera's memory card before ... I found out how to restore the images using a hex-editor, but it turned out to be pretty tedious. This was the moment when the idea for "Exif Untrasher" was born.

Icon MenuMeters 1.9.2

MenuMeters is a set of CPU, memory, disk, and network monitoring tools for MacOS X. Although there are numerous other programs which do the same thing, none had quite the feature set I was looking for. Most were windows that sat in a corner or on the desktop, which are inevitably obscured by document windows on a PowerBook's small screen. Those monitors which used the menubar mostly used the NSStatusItem API, which has the annoying tendency to totally reorder my menubar on every login.
The MenuMeters monitors are true SystemUIServer plugins (also known as Menu Extras). This means they can be reordered using command-drag and remember their positions in the menubar across logins and restarts.

- The CPU Meter can display system load both as a total percentage, or broken out as user and system time.
- The Disk Activity Meter displays disk activity to local disks on the system (anything that is a IOKit BlockStorage driver).
- The Memory Meter can display current memory usage as either a pie chart, thermometer, history graph, or as used/free totals.
- The Net Meter can display network throughput as arrows, bytes per second, and/or as a graph.

Icon TechTool Pro 9.6

Your Mac's hard drive, even if it is a Solid State Drive, is more likely to experience problems than any other component on your Mac. Because data changes so frequently, it can sometimes get scrambled. So, it's important to be able to test drives for problems and then repair them. Sadly, if something is physically wrong with the drive, it will need to be backed up and replaced, but the sooner this type of damage is detected, the fewer files - like cherished memories and important personal documents - will be lost. Most drive problems, however, result from data being in the wrong place, and can be repaired using TechTool Pro’s Volume Rebuild tool.

High Sierra and initial APFS compatibility: Apple is redefining how Macs use their disks. APFS, or Apple File System, is their new path forward. If you have upgraded, or plan to upgrade, to macOS High Sierra and have a solid state drive, your disk is going to get 'upgraded' to APFS. Be ready for APFS and macOS High Sierra with TechTool Pro 9.6 - it is the first third party Mac utility to offer APFS compatibility. And it has been fully tested to support High Sierra (macOS 10.13) as well. One extra upside to APFS drives: you don't need to start up from an eDrive to test them.
Trust us when we say that there is a lot going on with this new file system, so this is just *initial* support. Techtool Pro can now test and repair these disks, even eDrives on them, but we're still hard at work exploring the depths of this file system. Some more advanced features will be coming down the road.
