Yank

Version: 2.0 || Release Date: 2009-07-21 || License: Shareware (USD 19.95) Developer: Matterform Media | App Owner: mcg

Yank is an all-purpose uninstaller for Mac OS X. Yank can create uninstaller files—called Yank Files—to uninstall any software and all its support files, no matter how it was installed.
Other uninstaller products for the Mac use unreliable search technologies to locate and remove software. They rarely find all related files and never find files that programmers deliberately hide. Yank uses Matterform's new Sonar technology to log file system changes in real time, which lets Yank remove software reliably, safely and completely. Yank can create Yank files for any kind of installation: packages, custom installer programs and drag-and-drop installers.

I was considering using this software except it seems that the entire "company" is one guy. I was looking around on their Web page to report some PHP errors I ran into and I found that their Tech Support page said, "We regret that, due to serious family hardship, we are currently unable to provide technicals support for our products. Technical support is closed until further notice." Not something I think I want to be paying for even if it is only $20.

Didn't want to remove the one application with which I was having issues, NoteBook. Got some really weird GUI-related stack traces when I turned on debug mode. I couldn't make sense of the message even though I'm a professional developer myself. Let's hope it's just this one program that caused it to fail.

Ya know... I've been wondering for a long time if there were any programs like this. It's the best way to remove a program.
I'm tempted to buy it. Can anyone tell me ~how good it works compared to something like AppZapper?

Now to find one for Windows...
