Why is it so difficult to uninstall the mac desktop version? Remnants are left after the drag and drop into the bin from applications. There's not uninstall feature in the app itself. It is running my CPU insanely hot and I want it off my machine. 

fingagent.bin is gobbling up

    To uninstall Fing desktop from MacBook, all you need to do is to move the application from installed folder to Trash and it will be uninstalled. You can try to move files to trash from safe mode as well.

    Don't understand the above comment.  Using App cleaner I see 25 files and folders which would not be removed by just deleting the application:

    ~/Library/Application Support/Fing
    ~/Library/Logs/Fing
    ~/Libary/Preferences/com.fing.app.plist

    etc.

    To uninstall Fing desktop from MAC device, you just need to drag the application from installed folder to Trash. You can use other application cleaners if you want.
