Hidden in your preferences pane, AppTrap can be activated in a click and set to work on startup. It's a perfect add-on to your Mac, working in the background without you ever having to worry about it. Every time you uninstall an application, if AppTrap is activated, it'll remove all associated files automatically. As the developer says, this add-on is extremely simple to use and seamless.

The only worry we would have with AppTrap is that you never really know what associated files are being uninstalled.

Changes

  • Background Process & Preference Pane:
  • New Portugues translation. Thanks Vasco Patricio!
  • French and Dutch localization updates.
  • Background Process:
  • A warning has been added to the uninstall confirmation window that warns the user that the application may only be updating itself.

AppTrap is designed with two things in mind:

  • Extreme simplicity
  • Being completely seamless

The first point is achieved by not including anything but the main functionality described above. There will never be any spring cleaning or or other snazzy features, not even bells and whistles!

The second point is achieved by integrating AppTrap with Mac OS X. You won't ever see AppTrap except for its dialogue window; yes, that's right, there's no menu extra. Only a background application and a preference pane. Also, the aim is to include as many localizations as possible, so you'll have to help out here!
