One thing unique about Mac is that there is no uninstall function for its applications. If you have just converted from Windows to Mac, one of the many things that you will ask is “How do I uninstall the programs that I don’t want?”
It is actually very easy to uninstall program in Mac. All you need to do is to go to “Application’ and drag the program icon (or folder) to the trash. That’s all.
One caveat though: if the program installs library files that in the /library or /system folder, they won’t be removed. This happened when I drag my Missing Sync to the trash and there is still a framework library in the library folder.
To totally clean up your system, you can use AppTrap to eliminate all the files associated with the program. AppTrap is a small application that runs silently on the background. When you drag a program to the trash, it pops up a window and asks if you want to remove all the files associated with the program. You can just select Yes or No and that’s all. Simple and easy. Did I also mention that it is free too?
