Editors' Review

App Cleaner for Mac is a simple application that uninstalls applications and all associated files. It is available from many download sites, although not from the App Store, and it installs easily. App Cleaner for Mac is a free download.

While most apps will uninstall from a Mac without a problem, there are a few apps that will not, and that leave orphan files or folders hanging around chewing up disk space. App Cleaner for Mac is a simple way to get rid of these applications and files. To use App Cleaner for Mac, you simply drag an app icon over the App Cleaner for Mac icon, and it will then search the filesystem for files created by the app and remove them. While it sounds simple, there are a couple of really nice capabilities built into App Cleaner for Mac. For example, if you've already tagged an app for deletion and then run App Cleaner for Mac, it will notice the app in the Trash and offer to help remove leftover files for you. App Cleaner for Mac can also clean up plug-ins, widgets, and anything else that has been installed.

We tested App Cleaner for Mac on a couple of Macs that had bloated software loads. On one machine we ran the normal deletion processes and on the other we used App Cleaner for Mac. The apps removed by App Cleaner for Mac were cleanly handled, while the standard Mac had two that would not uninstall cleanly and left a number of files hanging around. Since this is a free app, there's absolutely no reason not to install and depend on it.
