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.

Developer's Description

Why does Mac OS X need an Uninstaller?
Have you ever unsuccessfully tried to get rid of a program and all the files that came with it? Are logs, play lists and caches cluttering folders and volumes on your Mac? Don't you ask yourself from time to time where the multiple gigabytes of hard disk space continuously vanish to? Uninstall, archive, backup and analysis. CleanApp analyzes, archives and removes applications and on your Mac, complete with all relevant files.

Efficient
Our brand-new version 3 of CleanApp now gained in power and efficiency: requiring less memory and CPU than the predecessor, CleanApp 3 reliably tracks the most complex installations and quickly presents the user with a comprehensive listing of all information gathered so far.

Compatible
CleanApp's Logging-Service is our custom-designed mechanism to meticulously record all activities of applications on your Mac. This component has been updated, leveraging Apple's recommended programming architecture. CleanApp 3 is now completely Leopard-compliant and runs smoothly on Mac OS X 10.5 and 10.6. To maintain backwards compatibility, we still fully support Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger.

Intuitive
Our entirely new GUI design comprises much of the feedback and suggestions we received from our users. CleanApp 3 has become even easier to handle and configure thanks to this new graphical user interface.
