Matterform Media has announced , an all-purpose uninstaller for Mac OS X. Yank uses Matterform's Sonar technology to remove hidden files that search tools cannot locate. Users install new programs on their Mac using Yank, which records every change made the the computer in the installation process. When the user wants to uninstall the program, Yank then knows where any "hidden" files may be, and uninstalls them. A Yank file sharing service is also available. A free demo can be downloaded; the full Yank costs $20. Yank requires OS X 10.2 or later, while OS X 10.4 Tiger is recommended for full feature support.
