AppDelete for Mac4.3.3

05 May 2017

Uninstall your unwanted apps and eliminate associated files.

What is AppDelete for Mac

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

What's new in AppDelete

Version 4.3.3:
  • New float main window on top preference
  • Added Greek localization
  • Refinements to uninstall algorithm
  • Various localization updates and other improvements

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.

I'm assuming this app is no longer being developed with the last update being 4 years ago?

super simple and effective way to get rid of apps along with their paraphernalia! I have been always only deleting an App, and many leave a trail of clutter behind. AppDelete gives me satisfaction by making sure that when I delete App X, no X-related stuff will be left behind in Library, Prefs etc, apart of course from files I created and saved.

Might be the App I have used more than any other over time. Unbelievable functionality! Sadly, though it still works, it performs at a snail's pace. The problem……Catalina!!! Works fine in Mojave. Given the date this was last updated, it seems like my favorite App has been abandoned by the developer. I certainly would like to know what it'd take to get the developer to update this. I'd be quite happy to pay at least twice the current price for a licenced copy.

This is the most sophiticated, well designed app uninstaller I have ever seen. I've tried many over the years and used AppDelete for the last 15 years. Unfortunately, the AppDelete developer passed away a couple of years ago and the app has not kept up with changes in the Apple OS. I was persuaded to try this app by the outstanding reviews. I'm impressed. Great interface, fast, clean process for deleting all files associated with an app.

Great App that actually deletes files and anything associated with them. I still wish it could remove some of the tougher programs but I understand that they are restricted some with apps requiring the user to uninstall through them.

Nice app. I check the files it finds before deleting and it's all correct so far.
