AppDelete Lite

4.3.2
20 February 2017

Delete apps and their associated files (lite version).

Overview

AppDelete Lite is a special Mac App Store version of the popular uninstaller AppDelete. AppDelete Lite will help remove not only applications but also widgets, preference panes, plugins, and screensavers, along with their associated files. Without AppDelete Lite, these associated items will be left behind to take up space and potentially cause issues. For a proper uninstall, don't just delete, but be sure to use AppDelete Lite!

You can drag any item that can be uninstalled onto AppDelete Lite: applications, widgets, preference panes, plugins, screensavers, etc. You can also activate AppDelete in many ways: dragging items onto main window, onto dock icon, selecting in menu, throwing items in the trash, dragging from Launchpad, etc. When the preview screen appears you can uncheck any items you would like to exclude. You also have several choices: delete the items, log only the items, or archive (copy) the items to a .zip file for safekeeping or reinstall at a later date. The items you delete will be logged and then you can move them quickly to the trash by clicking on the links in the AppDelete Lite Info panel and revealing them in Finder.

Simply the best deleting app available on the Mac App Store - but of course, to full non-Mac App Store version of AppDelete is better.

An important update that now allows non-password protected files to be deleted automatically. This brings the Lite version much closer to the standard AppDelete. If you have any questions please let me know. Thanks! Reggie the Developer

Hello, I just bought this app hoping i can get rid of some junk on my computer. I open the app and then draw the program over to delete it. I get all the file names that go along with the app, but no option to delete. All I get is cancel, archive, and log only. I can't I delete?

Reggie I have version 3.2.9 using Snow Leopard; while this is an Mac App Store version, I do in fact have version 3.2.9; would I qualify for a free upgrade because of the version I have, not because of where or who has it??? the version is 3.2.10; thank you in advance in this mater!!!

Hi Robtpatrick, At the moment only AppDelete Lite is on 3.2.10, AppDelete 3 from my site is still on 3.2.9. Of course there is also AppDelete 4 from my site. So if you are running the version from my site (3.2.9) on Snow Leopard you are up to date. Hope this clears things up and if I can assist further just send me an email and I'd be happy to help, Reggie
