Editors' Review

+

Are you an ex-Windows user that misses having an uninstaller or just want a better way to get rid of unwanted apps completely? AppZapper makes it easy to uninstall apps along with all their related files in Mac OS X Snow Leopard. Simply drag-and-drop the unwanted software into program's interface, and AppZapper will gather and list all the related files so you can eradicate them from your hard drive in one fell swoop. The developer of this app calls it the "uninstaller Apple forgot" and we agree that it is both extremely useful and easy-to-use. One important note: this app's current version only works with Mac OS X 10.6 and later versions of the Mac OS. You'll need to download an earlier version of the program to work on older releases of Mac OS X. Overall, anyone that's looking for a way to get programs and all their related files off their Mac easily should download this program.

This application is a must have for every Mac user. saves you time and frustration of deleting and uninstalling you applications and its associated left overs without a headache. You won't worry about useless junks culturing your system any more.

none that I have encountered.

Summary

Great application, simply drag that unwanted app into the box and get rid of everything along with it if you see necessary. you can always see what files or folders it is deleting, so if there is anything you need to keep, then all you have to do is to uncheck the box to make sure it is not deleted.

"Great little tool for keeping your Mac clean"

March 08, 2010  |  By rjwingo

 |  Version: AppZapper 2.0.1

Pros

This program is simple to use and does a great job of finding and eliminating unneeded files when you want to delete a program.

Cons

There is nothing that I see as a con.

Summary

For the most part all you need to do to uninstall a program on a mac is just delete the app from the Applications folder. There may be a few little configuration files that don't get deleted using this method, but all they do is take of very little space. Every now and then you get a program that has a more complex install process and requires a more sophisticated uninstall process. This is where AppZapper shines. It does an excellent job of finding all of those stray files and gives you the opportunity to zap them when you uninstall the main app. It works well and is very easy to use.
