    I'm curious to if it cleans more garbage than CCleaner does.

    Came across this app here: Delete Obsolete Application Data From Your System With AppCleaner

    If only CCleaner cleaned out all junk, I'd agree with you. Besides CCleaner I'm using Temp File Cleaner and System Ninja.

    Taking a look at AppCleaner it certainly is not unalike CCleaner. It has a similar basic layout and removes basically the same file content that CCleaner does. I have to admit that it does have a crisp, clean look to its interface. It should be pointed out, though, that currently AppCleaner is still in Beta which means that there are still likely to be numerous bugs in the system. Unless you are used to 'testing' beta software I would be inclined to pass this one over, at least until the official release is made available, then it might be worth taking another look at.

    Stick with what works for you and don't always reach for the "Fools" Gold Ring. CCleaner here now and always

    After having an even closer look at AppCleaner it appears that it does exactly the same as CCleaner. There are a couple of option which are different such as Missing CLSID's, Uninstaller and Services from the registry cleaner but the rest of the application is basically the same as CCleaner. I don't use the registry cleaner on CCleaner and I certainly wouldn't be using the registry cleaner on AppCleaner either, particularly when it is making changes to services. Checking for missing CLSID's can also be fraught with problems. As for uninstallers, I am assuming that they are removing those from the registry which, again, could cause problems, especially if the wrong one is removed. No, after further detail investigation my advise is stick with CCleaner.
