You must be thinking, “If AppCleaner was already featured as one of the 15 must-have apps 15 Must-Have Free Apps For Your Mac & Giveaway 15 Must-Have Free Apps For Your Mac & Giveaway Read More , then why on earth is MakeUseOf suggesting AppZapper?” You ask a valid question.

AppZapper is so much more than just an uninstaller. Don’t let the simple outlook fool you. Under that basic drag-and-drop interface hides an amazingly capable app manager. We’re talking mega features.

In short, we’re just in love with it. That’s why we managed to get our hands on 20 licenses worth $260 give away!


This is the basic interface. You’ll probably use this for your ordinary drag-and-drop uninstallation procedures. See the little toggle on the top right hand corner? Click it and enjoy the fuzzy feelings.

This is AppZapper’s pride and joy — the Hit List. This is a list of all your installed applications, widgets, plugins and preference panes. Click on any app and their related files will be revealed in the lower section. You can also choose to filter apps by size or when they were last used.

If you’ve wondered how to uninstall preference panes, well, this is one of the ways — it’s simpler anyway. Again, click on any one of them and their related files will stand out like a police line-up.

If the Hit List is AppZapper’s pride and joy, this must be their crown jewel –My Apps. Just drag any purchased app into this list and they will automatically be protected by from accidental zapping (uninstallation).

Click on a card and it will flip around to reveal license information and the works. How are those fuzzy feelings working for ya?

Are you convinced AppZapper is just mega?

As a keen-eyed reader pointed out, this version of AppZapper requires Snow Leopard. You may still use the license for version 1.8. AppZapper is upgradable to 2.0.1 if you decide to install Snow Leopard in the future.
