AppDelete Lite

AppDelete Lite is a special version of AppDelete made for the Mac App Store. AppDelete Lite has all of the core features of AppDelete and is slightly modified to meet the Mac App Store guidelines. The main difference between AppDelete and AppDelete Lite is that AppDelete Lite cannot move password-protected files that are found to the trash (App Store apps cannot ask for passwords). The user must do this manually. Keep in mind that it only takes a moment to do this by clicking on the pathname links in the AppDelete Lite Info panel and revealing these items in Finder, and then moving them to the trash. The files found by AppDelete and AppDelete Lite are the same and there is no difference in the quality of uninstalling.



Other differences in AppDelete Lite:

* Installing from Archive (you can still make an archive and reinstall it manually)
* AppDelete workflow (contextual menu item)
* Undo (Undo and Put Back in Finder will work on manually deleted files)
* Orphans feature
* Hidden mode
* AppDelete tools


These features might be added back in the future if the App Store guidelines are updated to allow them. The good news is that AppDelete Lite is cheaper than AppDelete to make up for the differences, and you can Upgrade at anytime (see Pricing and Upgrades below). My recommendation would be AppDelete as that is the main version with no limitations and automatic updates. However, if purchasing from the Mac App Store is a priority for you then AppDelete Lite will do a great job! Also, this video will help you understand the Lite version better - Tutorial
