Contrary to popular belief, uninstalling applications on a Mac doesn't just mean trashing a file. You often need to check the Library and also remove Application Support and cache files. An uninstaller like AppCleaner will make sure all unwanted files are removed.

Clear overview of installed components

AppCleaner features simple checkbox uninstallation and also lets you browse through your installed apps divided into applications, widgets and others. This last one is particularly useful as it shows all your plugins and components, which you normally have to go digging for in your Application Library. AppCleaner even cleans caches and receipts.

Easy to search and destroy apps

AppCleaner is simple enough thanks to the search function to find applications faster and the useful SmartDelete will detect and trash related items. You can protect launched and default apps and 3D transitions and choose other ones you don't want to delete. AppCleaner is overall extremely easy to use and the small interface is very self explanatory.

An excellent tool to keep your Mac clean

AppCleaner is an excellent uninstaller for searching and destroying files that would otherwise be left behind during the uninstall process.

Changes
