6/10/2008  Uninstall Manager v3.24

  • NEW: New cool feature for registered users: Vacuum Mode - You can now turn on the 'vacuum' for selected applications, so that once you exit them, all of their items will be automatically deleted. The next time you start an application selected for vacuum mode, it will be as if it was just installed. The new option can be found under the File menu (Turn Vacuum On/Off).

WARNING: Make sure you know what you're doing! The associated and monitored items of a chosen app will be deleted without prompt as soon as you exit it.

  • Other misc. minor changes.
2/8/2008  Uninstall Manager v3.20

  • NEW: Timeline view: The Installed Files view has been replaced with the more general Timeline view. This new view groups all items saved onto your device by creation date. The new Timeline view allows you to quickly locate files you've just downloaded from the internet, received via Bluetooth, and generally, an easy way to track what's being saved and when.
    • You can still see only files installed using the HotSync manager by selecting the new option from the Settings dialog.
  • Cards view: The files on both the main memory and the card are now displayed with a checkbox. This is a better indication that you can delete multiple files in bulk. Note: You can still delete complete directories by selecting the directory icon (highlighting the directory).

 6/6/2007  Cleanup v4.00b

  • Cleanup v4 received a total facelift; some major new features have been added plus lots of adjustments/improvements to the previous code.
  • New GUI: Compatible with all the rest of the NeatFreak Pack programs. The new interface allows you to navigate the program and understand Cleanup’s functions with greater ease than ever before.
  • Quick Clean: Add multiple items to the new Quick Clean feature and instantly get rid of pesky items or private information in bulk. You can also undo any Quick Clean session by using Northglide Undo in case you mistakenly delete something you actually need (Northglide Undo v1.02 must be installed).
  • How often do you realize that you're running out of space and wonder what to delete, what you still need and how to make all that 'temporary removal process' easier? In one simple step, the new Spacemaker feature will help you make as much room as you need, so you can install any space-hogging file and restore everything back when you’re ready. Spacemaker moves entire applications (the app itself along with its files) and any other files that can be safely moved to a special location on the expansion card. Then, when you decide what to keep and what to delete, select the Spacemaker button to put everything back to the where it was.
  • The new version of Cleanup offers highly enhanced card cleaning functionality: View all files on the expansion card, all non-Palm files and unassociated card databases: With multiple different file views (and more will be added in the future!), Cleanup v4 helps you clean your expansion cards from old leftovers and reclaim your space!
  • New list icons/indicators to help you instantly learn more about any item on your device and the expansion card. Find out if it was monitored by Uninstall Manager, whether it is listed in the Signature File, if it’s a system item or if it has an associated application or not.
  • Improved Creator ID search: Find out which application on your device created that mysterious item! It’s faster, more accurate and more powerful. The new Search function will even search throughout the entire expansion card(s), not only specific locations.
  • Improved Search Results page.
  • Can now force delete protected files.
  • A single Preferences view shows records from both of the system preferences files and lists multiple preferences saved under the same Creator ID together (from both of the preferences files).
  • Show All Items option removed. There is now a different way (much simpler) for displaying the information in both Prefs. and Files lists by using a top level selection list.
  • New and improved Item Details dialog.
  • New list legend dialog so that you can quickly tell what every icon on the list means.
  • Easy to access Backup dialog - Improved backup mechanism and handling: Added support for overwriting (and force-deleting) existing RAM files when replacing with backup copies. Added ‘Restore All’ and ‘Delete All’ options.
  • Improved Ignore List dialog (previously Safe List). Hide items from the Unassociated… files and preferences lists.
  • Settings dialog: Choose between ‘Basic’ and ‘Advanced’ to change all of the program’s settings accordingly.
  • Select Card: Choose the expansion card to be used by the Spacemaker function and for saving backups (on compatible devices with multiple expansion cards or an internal drive).
  • Signature File: View information about the installed Signature File, its creation date and the number of records it includes (info about various applications). Update to the latest Signature File directly from your phone! (on compatible devices).
  • Added support for one-hand navigation (on compatible devices).
  • Faster loading of list items and comparing them with the Signature File: No longer you have to wait every time you switch between views for Cleanup to check the entire Signature File all over again. The records are now “cached” making it much easier to switch between the different views (the records will be re-cached when switching to the top level files and preferences views).
  • The new search and loading progress forms make it much easier to see and abort any time consuming process such as checking items with the Signature File.
  • LOTS of other improvements and changes.
