There's a big chance that you will have to deal with leftover files if you uninstall an application by sending it to Trash. CleanApp is a program for Mac users who wish to uninstall apps without leaving behind any of their associated files and language packs.

This tool isn't just an app uninstaller. CleanApp also helps you find and remove duplicated files from your Mac, delete empty folders and old documents, uninstall Internet plugins, erase screensavers, and much more.

An advantage of this program is the fact that it can rebuild the Spotlight database (although you should keep in mind that you might have to wait a while for this process to be complete). This task is necessary whenever Spotlight fails to find an existent file on your Mac.

In my testing, the application crashed several times while uninstalling apps. What's more, you need to install an additional tool in order to remove programs from your Mac efficiently.

Nevertheless, CleanApp offers a comprehensive set of tools that help you reclaim disk space on your Mac, get rid of duplicated files, clean System cache, etc. The program is simple to handle, offers a detailed help guide, and comes with a very reasonable price.
