App Zap has one function only and that is to get rid of unwanted apps and all their related files. Simplicity and security are the driving force behind the build. From the moment you click on the App Zap icon you need to be in control of removing apps in the most efficient and expedient fashion. If you click on the advanced function the app will search for all related files of the app to be eliminated.
Lots of add ons and upgrades in this update!
The permission issue in respect to apps that need your password to be removed has been solved.
Just open Zap Option（Preferences) and turn “Authentication Required ”ON". Then You'll find you can easily remove all your unwanted apps（Some apps may ask you to input your password）The selected app will be removed effortlessly after your input.
App Zap！Is always just one click away .
*** New *** the “reaveal in finder ” function.
Now you can click the folder icon（On the right ) to open the location of the files in finder.
The "click and go" concept is how iLifeTouch wants their apps to make users lives easier one app at a time.

NICE!!! - Before i was using Trashme. Well it failed to function under lion, so i tried this app. It took right off. This is a good uninstaller, the other one i have works a little better then this one. However it doesn't require an admin pw as much.
Dangerous For Novice Use - I have tried to use this on occasion for a number of months. I don't care what some of these 5 star reviewers are saying--all I can say is that it often will find files to delete that are CLEARLY not associated with the app in question. As long as you carefully examine the list and make judgments to uncheck irrelevant files, then that is one thing. But it is another to just assume that it has correctly searched your drive for relevant files, and then blindly hit the ZAP button. Do it enough times, and I assure you that you will break an app, and will be wondering later what caused your other apps to break, most likely without ever recognizing the cause. Furthermore, I keep finding that it doesn't really find everything related to the targeted app, so I am wondering exactly what it is doing to generate a list of files to delete. Often files are left in the ~/Library folder, and even in the /Applications folder that are adjacent to the binary itself!!! So who knows what else is being left around. So it seems these favorable reviewers are not particularly technically savvy, and are only checking to see if the main app is being deleted, in which case you could just drag your app to the trash to achieve the same effect. Surely there is a better app deleter out there.

Flawless - App Zap does works fine on Mountain Lion.
don't work in OSX 10.8.2 - don't work in OSX 10.8.2
Doesn't delete Mac Apps - BIG CAVEAT: It won't delete apps that come with your mac such as iMovie and iTunes. They won't drag to the trash and they are greyed out for a manual delete.
Love it - Its an awsome program. 4 stars due to them removing the zapping sound from this version.
deleted what I needed - I just have to come back and tell you that this is the BEST app to delete apps. It seriously works perfect! Congrats! March 29, 2012 when others would not. I have tried many of them and this is one of my favorites. Thanks. November 9, 2013 Just stopping by to say not only that its the best app for zapping my apps but it works perfect with Maverick!!! Thank you and keep up the awesum work!! :)
