AppCleaner is a small utility that is able to detect all the files associated to a certain application and helps you delete them when you remove the application.
Drag and drop workflow
Working with AppCleaner is extremely intuitive: simply drag and drop the application you want to delete on top of the AppCleaner main window. The utility will scan your disk and displays all the related files in list form.
AppCleaner enables you to decide exactly what will be deleted through a checkbox system: this way you can keep the app’s archive, for example.
Detect all installed apps, widgets and more
Via the AppCleaner main window you get to view a list of all applications installed on your Mac, all your widgets and other types of software, such as plug-ins. This way you can quickly clean your Mac of unwanted software in a matter of minutes.
Efficient SmartDelete capabilities
AppCleaner comes with a SmartDelete tool that can be quickly activated via the Preferences window. Having this enabled at all times is highly recommended because it will automatically detect if an application that has been dropped in the Trash has left files behind.
In case junk files are discovered, SmartDelete automatically launches the AppCleaner window and offers you the option to delete them.
Small yet extremely efficient cleaner app
Since AppCleaner does not require too many resources, so having the application running at all times does not interfere with your workflow. Even though it does not come with complex scanning tools, its unobtrusive manner of making sure your system is kept clean makes it a great addition to your software collection.
