Applications on Mac can be deleted by normal dragging into Trash. This is a common but incomplete way to uninstall apps.

Applications during operations create service files: caches, application logs, autosave files, preferences and so on. Some apps create even additional folders with temporary files. After deleting an app, its service files become completely unnecessary.

It’s obvious that such files, which occupy useless space on a Mac hard drive, cannot simply be deleted while putting them in Trash.  


App Uninstaller is a special tool to remove apps on Mac completely, including their service files. You can view a list of your apps in the Applications Tab.

By choosing any application from this list, you will see a list of its temporary files which should be deleted during uninstallation. You can delete an app entirely with its service files or delete only some of its temporary files.
