AppDelete overview

AppDelete is an uninstaller that will remove not only applications but also widgets, preference panes, plugins, and screensavers along with their associated files. Without AppDelete these associated items will be left behind to take up space and potentially cause issues. The items you delete will be moved to the trash and arranged in a folder so that you can see exactly what was deleted and you know exactly where it came from. The items will not be removed from your computer until you empty them from your trash. You can also undo the last delete if you choose. AppDelete technology is also integrated into MacUpdate Desktop. This allows you to delete apps right from within MacUpdate Desktop by right-clicking on it and asking AppDelete to delete it.

There are several ways to activate AppDelete:

  • Drag items onto main window
  • Drag items onto dock
  • Select items through menu
  • Right-click to use AppDelete workflow
  • Throw items in trash
  • In MacUpdate Desktop, right click on any app and select "Delete with AppDelete"

There are several actions to take with AppDelete:

  • Delete the items
  • Log only the items
  • Archive the items to a .ZIP file for safekeeping or reinstallation at a later date.
  • Use Orphans feature to search and delete orphaned files

The developer has passed away some years ago. It is surprising after years of macOS major version change it still works without any major issues. Hope his friends can continue this great piece of software. Will pay for upgrade.

Question for reviewers: Why does this app need permission to record the screen? After years of using the app, it asked me that question a couple of days ago. I denied the request and it seems to be working OK. I was very sorry to just see that Reggie passed away in 2017. Over the years I had several conversations with him (email) and thought he was a conscientious developer who cared about his users. The app has been running flawlessly since then so I had no reason to find out he was gone. It was only after two failed attempts to get the above question answered that I came here to find out what was going on.

Even though the programmer is no longer with us (tragic car accident in 2017), this is STILL the best uninstaller on the Mac platform. Works great in Big Sur.
