AppZapper allows you to confidently uninstall virtually any application as easily as it was installed -- just drag and drop. Drag one or more unwanted apps onto AppZapper and watch as it finds all the extra files and lets you delete them with a single click. A slick safety system remembers which apps you want to keep safe, and the log tracks all the files you've zapped. Put simply, AppZapper is the uninstaller Apple forgot.

I've begun to notice AppZapper seems to no longer be showing any preferences or other library files for a number of apps from the AppStore...

I've recently taken the liberty to manually search my library folder AFTER using AppZapper, and sure enough after the last couple of app deletes there are still preference and other files to be MANUALLY found after AppZapper completes...

It's becoming as effective as hitting cmd-del in many instances...

This app is a hot mess and is definitely not worth $13, there's other alternatives out there that are way cheaper (like the free appcleaner and $6 trashmen) and is actually stable.

I used this app when SL first came out and it worked really well, however, with each SL update, this app got more and more unstable... and was NEVER UPDATED to address those issues(last update was a year and half ago... wow). Not to mention the search engine is crap, it doesn't find all the files... even the free appcleaner even works better... if you are looking for a better uninstaller, i recommend trashme, it's only $6, is stable, recevies regular updates, and its search engine is even better than appcleaner and appzapper.

I hit upon a way to get around AppZapper's glitchy behavior. Delete one app, then close AppZapper. It seems that it does not like to be used repeatedly, and the restart solves that for my system.

Your method really does solve all of AppZapper's problems — if the app you delete is AppZapper! There's no other solution for such dreck that worked poorly when it was new and then was abandoned by its creator.

Overall Rating: Don't bother.

I used to love AppZapper, and 2.0, when first released, was great. I don't know what happened but here's the process that I have to go through to remove an app:

1. Drag-n-drop app icon on AppZapper
2. Finder locks up for a minute with beach ball
3. Click zap
4. System locks up
5. AppZapper closes and a report to Apple appears
6. Click send
7. Rinse and repeat.

I've done everything from deleting the app and its associated files to reapplying Mac OS X combo updates and the issue never gets resolved. Now I use the free TrashMe.

Easy to use(drag and drop) but it freezes sometimes when the size of the app is large or when it contains a lot of files.

Very bad support from the developer. I bought this app 3 or 4 days ago. I got charged by PayPal and received the receipt for that.

However, I haven't received the license code from the developer. I've emailed him twice, no reply.

I know it's the holidays, but he has no auto-reply indicating when he might reply later and his 'send me my key' on his web site says it has no idea who I am.

So for the time being I am out $12.95.

Disappointed. I don't recommend buying this. :-(

AppZapper has been a long term useful tool. I updated to v 2.0.0 and now it will not open at all - crashes on launch every single time. I am running OS 10.5.8 - if AppZapper should only be installed on a Snow Leopard system it should so state.

Will be reinstalling my old version from backup and waiting a bit longer for AppZapper to get their act together.

It does say that's it's for SL only (See Below). A strange move, but one that is advertised:

WHAT'S NEW
Version 2.0.0:
Adds a new interface for Snow Leopard.
Adds a Hit List feature, which allows you to visually browse all of the apps on your computer. Search, scroll, and filter your way through every app you have installed. Simply select an app to see its related files, and hit 'Zap!' to move them to the trash instantly.
Also adds a MyApps feature that allows you to store license information for apps that you own and want to keep.


REQUIREMENTS
Mac OS X 10.6.2 or later.
