1. Overview

App Cleaner is a special tool for completely uninstalling an application from macOS.
Although apps could be trashed just by putting the icons into the Trash, App Cleaner allows you to uninstall apps correctly and completely.

 Uninstall apps

When a program runs, some unnecessary files remain. These files include caches, logs, preferences, autosave files, etc. Some apps even create additional folders with own files, which are not easy to find.

cache folders

It’s clear that such files can’t be removed by simply putting them into the Trash. Little by little, these files may fill up disk memory on your Mac, keeping unneeded data. App Cleaner allows you to perform a complete cleanup of applications and remove all the cache data created when the apps run.

Apps’ Service Files

You can view a list of all apps with their service files in еру Applications Tab.

With App Cleaner, you can view all of the programs installed on your Mac. When you click on any app you will see a list of its temporary files and folders in the right column. These files should be cleared when you uninstall them. You can remove an app completely or delete only some of the files in its service folders.

Remains Tab

Moreover, some apps could have been removed earlier by a regular trashing procedure, and as a result, absolutely useless files could still on your Mac. App Cleaner finds and allows you to clear the Remains – broken service files from already deleted applications.
View the list of service files from apps you have already removed in the Remains tab.
