Safely delete any application on your Mac with AppDelete

Independent software developer Reggie Ashworth announced AppDelete 2.2.2, an update to his application deletion utility for Mac OS X.

Just drag the unwanted application (or folder containing it) onto the AppDelete icon. Users can also select from the main menu, or right-click an item in the Finder using the AppDelete Automator workflow. AppDelete also works well in the Dock.

AppDelete will then search the system to find the associated items. These items will be moved inside of a folder in the Trash named AppDelete with the name of the app dragged onto the icon. The folder can be inspected at any time before emptying the trash.

New features in version 2.2.2:

  • Redesigned interface and operation optimized for Leopard (also runs on Tiger and Panther).
  • File selection prior to deletion of items.
  • Ability to search for invisible associated items via the “Hidden” button.
  • Now includes the following languages: English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese (Brazilian), Russian, Spanish.
  • Now activates if an app has been placed in the Trash (AppDelete must be running in background).
  • Refined and more accurate searching for associated items.
  • Can select between “Main” and “User” locations in the main menu .
  • Force Empty Trash for difficult to remove items.
  • Able to be added to Login Items.
  • Contains all features and “feel” of previous versions while adding many new features and improvements.
  • Other miscellaneous “Under the Hood” improvements.

AppDelete 2.2.2 is only $5.00 for a single user license.
