This AppTrap is one of those Mac's Lil Gem's that is a must for Mac User. AppTrap Does its job without Shining.
Simple and easy and FREE.

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?

The developer's website is down, but there is a Google Group up for the app:

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 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.

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.

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.

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

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?

Y, I'm seeing the same here. Still a great app, but it would be nice to get that fixed ASAP, as I'm sure any new users will be stumped by the missing text.

I've downgraded to 1.1.5, available from the developer's releases page. Works fine. Hope the issue will be addressed, but so far there hasn't even been any acknowledgment from the developer about the problem.

After upgrading to 1.0.5, System Preferences gives me an error:

Could not load AppTrap

Is this version for 10.5 only or something?

I have 10.4.11.

It worked on a couple of apps, but ironically, it did not find anything when I moved "AppDelete" to the trash. Maybe needs a little more work. Nice idea though.
