Unclutter is one of the few software companies in Ukraine, and like MacPaw (CleanMyMac) they are based in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine.

With the horrific events that took place in Ukraine, the details of development and software fade into the background.

You can donate to the Ukrainian army through the National Bank of Ukraine or through the Come Back Alive NGO.
