Clean the bad apps from your Mac

If you're looking for a Mac uninstaller with a little extra under the hood, CleanApp offers all the features you need to get rid of unwanted apps once and for all.

If you're looking for a Mac uninstaller with a little extra under the hood, CleanApp offers all the features you need to get rid of unwanted apps once and for all.

With CleanApp, you drag and drop apps to the interface, and then you can view them and their associated files before you decide what to do. But unlike other uninstall utilities for Mac, CleanApp offers a few extras across the top of the interface, so you can zero in on what you want to uninstall. The Applications button displays all installed apps; a System Accessories button lets you sift through files like plug-ins and screensavers; and under the More Features button you can quickly find and remove unused files, language packages, and old cache files.

One of our favorite features of CleanApp is its "Install Logging" option. It's a background task that records when you install new software, so you (and CleanApp) can be absolutely sure all associated files get the boot when you decide to uninstall them.

Overall, CleanApp has a nice feature set and does a thorough job of eradicating unwanted apps from your hard drive. With its drag-and-drop interface and added extras for getting rid of other junk files, it's easy to recommend CleanApp to any Mac user.
