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 moved to the trash and arranged in a folder so that you can see exactly what was deleted and you know exactly where it came from. The items will not be removed from your computer until you empty them from your trash. And items that are password protected can be manually moved to the trash quickly by clicking on the links in the AppDelete Lite Info panel and revealing them in Finder.

There are various options to make your AppDelete Lite experience complete: Quick search panels to help choose items for deletion, various filters to help you search by date/size or even clean up old PPC apps, Trash Monitoring so that simply throwing an app in the trash will activate AppDelete, and more...Try it today!

Good for me! - Glad to see AppDelete finally on the Mac App Store! Seems with the Lite version you need to manually move the files to the trash, but for the price I think it's pretty good. It still finds all the files so it's definitely not a rip-off like someone else said. And I've dealt with this developer in the past he is very responsive so if you need something just visit his site. This is good for me!

Version 3.2
Review by Tim Dennis

Dont waste your time - As has been noted before, this version does indeed find all of the files associated with an app, BUT having to go through Finder to delete the found files is a hassle that shouldn't exist. I bought this app with the intention of making it less of a pain to remove Application Support files when deleting an app, but this version doesn't save me any time from manually finding and deleting the files. Not worth $4, barely worth $1 I say.
