WARNING ABOUT ABANDONWARE! — I read at the top of this page: "AppTrap—1.2.4 —15 July 2020". This is not correct. The version 1.2.4 that downloads here is dated February 15, 2016. Moreover, at the developer's site (http://onnati.net/apptrap) the latest version is 1.2.3, dated December 28, 2015.

The author of version 1.2.3 (in an email to me) denies writing the listed version (1.2.4). What is going on here?

it's a great app. I wish the developed could fix just one bug that annoys me: when the app is running it manifests as an external volume connected to the computer.

This little Preferences Pane is still chugging along behind the scenes in Mountain Lion, OS X 10.8.2, working perfectly.

I installed this on my iMac & laptop (both Snow Leopard)to uninstall older versions of Microsoft Office, and I never recieved the "delete associated files?" warning when I emptied the trash. I had App Trap on when I did it. Did I do something wrong?

It seems Apptrap has problems when a macbook goes to sleep. On recovery it uses an insanely amount of memory. Happens every time.

Great little application, saves me opening CleanMyMac. I am worried about its memory usage (390MB Virtual Memory), so the developer should look into this. Other than that, I am very satisfied with this software!

I like this Preference Pane/App and hardly ever think about it. However, I have been thinking about adding memory and began studying the apps that are using memory. This one uses about 256MB. That seems like a lot to me. I don't think it needs to be open all the time, but I could be wrong. Is it accumulating data? I am going to try turning it off and just activating it when I delete an app, which is seldom.

Great app, thank you. Since the update, the dialog box now says 'move button' and 'leave button' instead of 'leave files' and 'move files' and a bunch of other code gibberish. Anyone else seeing that?

What makes this application so attractive is that you don't have to open up an application like AppDelete every time you want to delete a program making it very convenient to simply just move an application to the trash then ask you if you want to delete it's associated files. It feels like a feature built in to OS X rather than something secondary

I like AppCleaner better. It's also free, works in the background, and is just as good at removing all those extra app files. But it also shows you what it's going to delete and offers you the ability to not delete selective files if you choose. http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/25276/appcleaner

For me this has been the most dependable and easy to use utility of its kind for a long time now. Transparently it runs in the background as a preference pane. Its icon does not take up space in the dock nor in the menu bar. Kudos for the developer.
