Reggie Ashworth has announced the release and immediate availability of MAS AppDelete Lite 4.3.1, an update to his very popular application deletion utility for Mac OS X available via the Mac App Store. With a simple Drag & Drop, AppDelete Lite will uninstall anything along with all of the associated items. Mac users will no longer have to hunt through their system to find and delete these items manually.
You can drag any item that can be uninstalled onto AppDelete Lite: Applications, Widgets, Preference Panes, Plugins, Screensavers, etc. You can also activate AppDelete Lite in many ways: dragging items onto main window, onto dock icon, selecting in menu, dragging from Launchpad, and throwing items in the trash. 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.
Note: items requiring an administrator password must be deleted manually to comply with App Store guidelines, but this can be done quickly by clicking the reveal button in the AppDelete Lite Info panel, revealing in Finder, and moving them to the trash.
