DO WE NEED APP CLEANER UNINSTALLER PRO

Main question for any software application is , if we really need the application or can we do without ! I guess our readers know all about Mac maintenance and the need for antivirus and some neccesarry utilities like Nektony’s App Cleaner & Uninstaller. Running a Mac like any computer and being glad it is a bit Unix based, our system gets loaded with applications and smaller utilities. Our Mac’s have NO real system maintenance build-in, so we rely on third party software like CleanMyMac which includes an uninstaller function, or this unknown to me piece of software typically designed to just remove installed files and leftovers.

Unlike Windows, where the user should not use their computer as a ‘testing-machine’ if they want to keep using it as a responsive system, our Mac’s are more Unix based and less sesitive to system faillure due to lost files or worse. That said, our Mac’s do like Windows gather a load of system/applications files which at some point become obsolete when it is not longer needed.
Unlike Windows our Mac’s store files only in a few folders and don’t spread files around in your complete system, but still applications create some folder entries like .plist files and launch files etc. In case you wish to delete an older or unused application, it should delete not only the main application but also all related files no matter where they ‘hide’ in your Mac’s system. This is where we need help of utilities like Nektory’s App Cleaner, which keeps track of any file-relation ! Even though some application come with their Uninstall-Tool, some files get leftover and may cause problems at some point.
If you ever tried different Antivirus programs, you may have faced issues the installation program complaining of detecting an earlier version of some antivirus program conflicting the installation. You now need to search (if you know where to look), and delete the conflicting files.

Now why is Nektory’s App Cleaner better then others or even free applications? To make a claim for being the best remover utility, the application needs some dominant results and interface.

BETTERZIP 3 

We all use archives in some way or another through our emails or files stored on the internet. Archiving formats like ZIP and RAR are popular amongst users. ZIP mostly used for email attachments and RAR for larger files stored on the internet. So why do we need to ZIP or RAR our attachments and files?  Most common mailboxes have a max up/download size set by the provider.

This overview is from 2013, so there might be some changes. Still the max. file size is why we need Archivers like Betterzip. They are able to squeeze the file size to a smaller size, and combine all separate files into one if needed. The receiver opens the zipped files and has access to the full original files. Byte-savers is what they should be called. An easy process for every user. There is a number of archivers on the market, and they all work, but the main difference is usability, features and SPEED. A small file won’t make you notice any difference, but the larger files sort out the good from the bad.
