One of the major problems encountered when working with apps that are not sandboxed is the fact that, on removal, they leave behind resources files that take up storage space unnecessarily.
App Uninstaller is a simple yet efficient macOS utility that can detect all the files associated with an installation and helps you eliminate them from your disk with minimal effort.
Scan your Mac for installed apps and remove them correctly
Right off the bat, in the App Uninstaller main window, you get to see the list of apps currently deployed on your Mac. The app encourages you to select one of the utilities either to remove it or simply to see all the associated service files.
For your convenience, App Uninstaller allows you to sort the list of apps ascending or descending and by different criteria: name, size, date, or selected.
At the same time, App Uninstaller assigns a check box to each element, so you can decide if you want to remove all the files or only some of the items. The app also included select/deselect all buttons, and helps you mark for deletion only the service files.
Run cleanup checks in the background and protect essential applications
Via the App Uninstaller Preferences you get to decide if you want the apps list to include the system applications: even though this is possible, take into consideration that removing system files might lead to irreparable damage.
Furthermore, you get to make sure that all deleted apps are scanned for a complete cleanup, even though you don’t remove them through the App Uninstaller interface.
If this function is enabled, the App Uninstaller utility will monitor the Trash folder for deleted apps and automatically looks for related and service files.
On the other hand, App Uninstaller also helps you create a list of protected apps that will be ignored when the utility is scanning and marking items for deletion.
Correctly uninstall apps and keep your Mac clean from unwanted content
To sum up, App Uninstaller proposes a simple solution for making sure that all apps, including the ones that are not sandboxed, will be correctly removed from your system.
The App Uninstaller utility can detect all resources and service files related to a particular installation, yet the user has full control over the items that are to be removed.
