AppTrap

1.2.3
01 January 2016

Delete all files associated with trashed applications.

Overview

AppTrap does pops up a dialogue asking if you'd like to delete all associated files with trashed applications, allowing for a more complete clean-up of your Mac

What's new in AppTrap

Version 1.2.3:
  • Fixed a memory leak that would occur when AppTrap would search the trash folder. The solution involves restarting the background process when your Mac wakes from sleep. This is currently a stopgap measure while I implement a new design that fixes the problem.

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

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?

Office keeps most of it's associated files in the Office directory or in your personal Documents folder, rather than in either Library where AppTrap looks. So, nothing's wrong per se, it's just unexpected good behavior from the MS Mac team: Mactopia.com.

The developer's website is down, but there is a Google Group up for the app: http://groups.google.com/group/apptrap

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!

Try App Cleaner. It is a normal app, not a preference pane. When it is on, it only consumes 0.1% of CPU and 29 MB of real memory. It has a very neat feature called SmartDelete which, when App Cleaner is ON, it auto detects when an app is trashed and finds all related files and asks if you want to delete the entire batch. It gets 4.5 Stars. I've used it for years with no issues.

I downgrade from 1.2.2 to 1.1.7 because it uses sometimes suddenly 40% CPU and more.

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.
