Most of the screencasts we have done have been ones that help you learn about different types of software. The one today, submitted by Joe, is no different. He has created a screencast to show all of you how to use AppTrap to remove applications quickly and effectively.
When you remove an application from OS X, it can leave files such as preferences and documents. AppTrap will help you remove all of the associated files and permissions from an application. There are other programs availalbe to help you do this, but they are either paid-for versions, or don’t do the job very well. AppTrap is not only free, but it is powerful. It will help you get the job done!
With AppTrap, when you move an application to the trash, you’re automatically asked if you want to move the associated preference files as well. Now that’s uninstallation – the way it should be!
Once AppTrap is downloaded and installed, it is quite simple to use. Now, when you drag an application to the trash to delete it, a box will automatically pop up from AppTrap. It will ask you if you want to remove all associated system files, as well. You can choose whether or not to do this, based on your own preferences for each application.
AppTrap is a small – yet powerful – piece of software that helps you keep your OS X installation nice and clean, and free of leftover junk from uninstalled applications.
Thanks, Joe, for a great screencast! We’re looking forward to seeing what you come up with in the future.
