Uninstalling on Mac OS X; let's solve it once and for all!

What can be considered the exact opposite of dragging an application to the Applications folder? Opening another application, dragging the unwanted application to that application, clicking a button, clicking another button, quitting? Nope!

The exact opposite would have to be... dragging the application to the trash. Ah, there you go! This is exactly what AppTrap does. Whenever you drag an application to the trash, a dialog window will pop up, asking if you want to delete the associated system files too. Simple as that.

AppTrap is a completely free utility for uninstalling applications on Mac OS X.

This is great!

I'm continuing the project:

Note: I'm not implying that I am the only one continuing the project. The source code is open to anybody.

i love the fact that you don't have to open a separate app, but apptrap doesn't seem to spot as many items as appzapper. in particular, it didn't look for files in my $HOME/Library/Caches directory.. too bad, as i like this app..

The apptrap site is currently down. Someone has a mirror?

worked fine on my macbook core 2 duo running 10.5.1?

much better than having a seperate app in theory to remove all the crap but not sure what it does to system resources yet? surely not much if anything?

The pref pane's 'Start AppTrap' button does not work on my MacBook Core 2 Duo running 10.5.1. I click it, nothing happens.

I can attest to it working fine in Leopard. At least in my experience. :)

We're having DNS problems so the website address without "www" doesn't work at the moment. Just add "www" to the address and it'll work. I've edited the links in this entry.

Just checked their website today. It appears to be gone.

@rickyb : I delete almost everything using Apple+Backspace, so the AppZapper icon solution is not good enough. It also requires closing down after you zap, so is a lot more of an interruption.

@rampancy : Yay me!
