AppDelete 3.1 is now available

Independent software developer Reggie Ashworth today is pleased to announce AppDelete 3.1, an update to his very popular application deletion utility for Mac OS X. With a simple Drag & Drop, AppDelete will uninstall anything along with all of the associated items. Mac users will no longer have to hunt through their system to find and delete these items manually.

You can drag any item that can be uninstalled onto AppDelete: Applications, Widgets, Preference Panes, Plugins, Screensavers, etc. You can also activate AppDelete in many ways: dragging items onto main window, onto dock icon, selecting in menu, right-clicking using AppDelete workflow, and throwing items in the trash. When the preview screen appears you can uncheck any items you would like to exclude. You also have several choices: delete the items, log only the items, or archive (copy) the items to a .zip file for safekeeping or reinstall at a later date. The items you delete will be moved to the trash and arranged in a folder so that you can see exactly what was deleted and you know exactly where it came from. The items will not be removed from your computer until you empty them from your trash. You can also undo the last delete if you choose.

Version 3 has been rewritten and redesigned to take advantage of the latest technologies and to provide the best experience ever. And in Version 3.1 the following features are introduced: 64-bit support, 4 new languages (French, German, Italian, Swedish), new icon and "Hidden" mode, faster and more accurate searching, expanded Others panel, archive and delete without re-searching, select all/none for panels and more. Also, improvements have been made in stability and trash monitoring, as well as miscellaneous optimizations throughout.
