Bananabin offers a fun solution to manage the trash on your Mac

Mac users have different approaches to managing their trash folders. Some users postpone emptying their trash folders until the storage space is full, while others prefer to empty their trash folders regularly. Bananabin, a new and effective tool in this process, makes managing your trash folder both fun and efficient.

Bananabin brings animated flies to your screen when your trash can reaches a certain size. You can chase these flies with your mouse and this feature reminds the user in a fun way to clean the trash folder. This simple but effective application allows you to monitor the fullness of your trash folder and intervene when necessary.

Properties and use of Bananabin

Bananabin offers the user three different options to determine the level of filling of the trash folder. With the “Janitor Mode” option, flies appear on your screen when your trash folder exceeds 10MB, with the “The Recycler” option when it exceeds 1GB, and with the “Garbage Hoarder” option when it exceeds 10GB. This flexibility offers a trash management that suits different user needs.

Bananabin is currently in beta and available for free. However, when the full version of the app is released, it will cost a small fee, developer Leon Schrijvers told The Verge. The app is currently only compatible with macOS Sonoma, but support for macOS Ventura is planned for the future.

Bananabin requires certain permissions to work. The app needs accessibility permissions to read the location of the trash folder in the dock, and full disk access to calculate disk space. Schrijvers explains why these permissions are needed: “We need these permissions to calculate the fill level of the trash folder and to display flies when a certain threshold is exceeded.”

Users who want to try Bananabin can register on the official website of the application and access the download link. During the registration process, users need to enter their email address. After completing these steps, you can start benefiting from Bananabin’s fun and useful features.

As a result, Bananabin makes trash folder management fun instead of a monotonous task. With its innovative features and user-friendly interface, this application is a candidate to become the new favorite of computer users. You can easily control your trash folder and keep your computer’s performance at an optimum level for both personal and professional use.
