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

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.

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.

Misses on some of the leftover bits of programs, but all in all does a sufficient job with an easy to understand UI.

This was just announced: https://www.facebook.com/ReggieAshworthSoftware/posts/188229183848825 "Dear friends and customers of Reggie Ashworth. My name is Hans Tuchel, best friend of Reggie. I’m sad to inform you that Reggie passed away in a car accident last year. He left behind his common-law-wife and three kids. I will keep the support running for his successful Apps, VidConvert and AppDelete. Please contact me here if you have any questions. I’m working on the next update for the App."

I've tried a couple of other deletion apps and wasn't all that satisfied. After purchasing AppDelete, I set about getting rid of all the open source software I'd downloaded in my attempts to find suitable substitutes for Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. The other apps I used still left various artifacts about, especially in my Library folders, where even angels fear to tread when it comes from deleting files. AppDelete seems to have scoured my system thoroughly and I recovered a substantial amount of hard drive space.

Last week I had to find out which was the best Mac uninstaller for me. I read many many reviews and looked here at MacUpdate. The contenders: iTrash, AppCleaner, AppDelete, App Uninstaller (App Cleaner & Unistaller from Mac App Store... same developer), CleanMyMac, AppZapper, MacClense, CleanApp, MacRemover, & Osx Uninstaller. I could write a very long summary, but I think it best to just summarize my results. My testing methodology was simple. I chose 20 apps from quite a wide spectrum (Apple Apps, VPN's, games, Adobe products, photo editors, email programs, etc.) and then used each program to show me the related files that it found. I compared the results of my contenders. Very quickly, a "Top Tier" separated itself for the rest. They are: iTrash, AppDelete, App Uninstaller, and TrashMe. They consistently found more applicable files then the rest. Between these four, App Uninstaller and TrashMe took it by a nose at the finish line. Whats more, I preferred their UI quite a bit more than the other two, but obviously this is personal preference. I think any of these four should definitely be on your short list if you are looking for a Mac uninstaller. Just a couple more random thoughts: unless another developer takes over for Reggie (RIP), I would suspect updates to AppDelete are no more; MacRemover & Osx Uninstaller look to be from the same develper but definitely not worth $30; I chose App Unistaller over its Mac App Store version due to not being sandboxed, but also picked up TrashMe. TrashMe really surprised me. It sort of came out of nowhere but really proved itself over and over. Hope this helps some of you. Obviousl, YMMV. Cheers!

AppDelete is a fantastic app, small and efficient it removes a lot of resident files on uninstall that other apps can’t.

Appdelete doesn't work right running macOS10.13.4 latest beta. It finds less related files in the macOS temporal folders. I tried to contact the developer a week ago but got no reply yet. Anyone else having this problem too?
