Remove unwanted files with AppDelete for Mac

Perform clean uninstalls of applications using AppDelete for Mac.

Multiple applications and their stray files may present problems when you're trying to clear a computer. Offering a rather simple interface and operation, AppDelete for Mac cleans unwanted applications from your Mac with ease.

AppDelete for Mac is available as a free trial version with a limit of five deletions; access to the full version of requires a payment of $7.99. While small, the program takes a long time to download and there is no native installer, but it does start up cleanly and quickly. There are no instructions and support does not appear to be present, but the program's simple purpose and intuitive interface make it easy to use. A small window opens allowing the user to drag unwanted applications into the program. After a short analysis, AppDelete displays the application selected for deletion and any stray files. This allows the user to confirm the files to be deleted. Once they're selected, the program performs the delete operation quickly. Less intuitive operations, including manual selection, can be accessed by pressing small buttons at the top of the program box. Better labeling here by the developers would have been helpful. One of the more helpful additional features allows the user to search the computer for unused applications and files that may have been part of an incomplete uninstall. Beyond this, there are few features to the program, which is a disappointment since it is not freeware. It does perform its stated operations well.

For those users who install multiple applications on their Mac, AppDelete for Mac performs complete uninstalls easily with a simple interface.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of AppDelete for Mac 4.0.6.
