Uninstall Apps and...

Widgets, Preference Panes, Plugins, Bundles, Screensavers, etc. If it can be uninstalled then AppDelete can take care of it for you.

Keep your Mac clean

Don't let your Mac get full of files that can waste space and potentially cause problems. Use AppDelete to get rid of them regularly.

Find files fast

AppDelete doesn't take hours or even minutes to do its job. In fact, most uninstalls happen in a matter of seconds. Also delete from Launchpad.

Safe to use

All files to be deleted will be previewed first to the user, and then the files will be moved to the trash not removed immediately. There's even an Undo!

Start your way

Drag and drop, choose from the menu, Quick-search panels, right-clicking, even moving an item to the trash will let AppDelete know it's time to work.

The Trial will give you about 5 uses and a chance to explore a bit. For Support you can expect a personal response within 24 hours. AppDelete keeps a .workflow file to provide a contextual menu item for convenience. If removal is ever required simply delete it from your <Home>/Library/Services folder. Or on Leopard your <Home>/Library/Workflows/Applications/Finder folder. And for Alfred users there is an AppDelete workflow which can be found Here (thanks Schneppi).
