It’s simple to install an application on your Mac. Just drag an app into your application folder and it’s installed. It’s just as easy to delete an app, right? Wrong! When you install an app it also installs preferences, caches, and other support files through out your computer. When you drag an application to the trash these support file are left behind cluttering up valuable space on your Mac.

That’s where AppCleaner comes into play. AppCleaner safely removes applications from your Mac as well as unwanted support files that would otherwise be left behind. It also can fully remove widgets and plugins. AppCleaner is a very useful app that can save you a lot of time and space on your Mac.
