AppZapper 1.5 released
AppZapper has released AppZapper 1.5, an update to the software that allows users to uninstall virtually any application, widget, preference pane and plugin as easily as it was installed--using standard drag and drop functionality. AppZapper "intelligently" finds leftover support files and allows users to put them in the trash with a single click. "Mac OS X lets you install most applications with a simple drag to the applications folder. Many people decide they don't want an application and drag it to the trash. However, this does not remove the extra preferences, caches, and other support files generated during launch -- files that can sometimes be many times larger than the applications themselves. AppZapper helps clean up these leftover files, files that 99% of Mac users don't even know exist." Version 1.5 of the $13 shareware application features a new ZapGenie, which allows you to browse your collection of apps, search them, and sort them by the last time you used them--to effortlessly remove unwanted applications. It runs on Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later.
