I've used several different App. Removal Applications.
I now use AppCleaner. Its better than any other I've
used and paid for. AppCleaner is free.
Its funny, that article fails to mention AppCleaner.
Go figure.

I have used and paid for AppZapper.
AppCleaner is better. And I don't mean a little better.
AppCleaner can find and uninstall not only App's but
Widgets and System Preferences.

Try it.

Wow, I feel like a boob, I'm on my 2nd mac now and always thought dragging the folder to the trash was enough...

Good to know!

Hello Apple... it's 2010 and a 1/2. Why there is no uninstall utility built into OS X is beyond belief.

At least we can now display the full date and time in the menu bar without a hack. Rolling Eyes

Of course you guys know, I'm a huge Apple fan. This is why I have to shake my head when other things are so great, but simple everyday use features are overlooked.
