Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
App Zap has one function only and that is to get rid of unwanted apps and all their related files. Simplicity and security are the driving force behind the build. From the moment you click on the App Zap icon you need to be in control of removing apps in the most efficient and expedient fashion. If you click on the advanced function the app will search for all related files of the app to be eliminated.
What's New in Version 1.1
Lots of add ons and upgrades in this update!
The permission issue in respect to apps that need your password to be removed has been solved.
Just open Zap Option（Preferences) and turn “Authentication Required ”ON". Then You'll find you can easily remove all your unwanted apps（Some apps may ask you to input your password）The selected app will be removed effortlessly after your input.
App Zap！Is always just one click away .
*** New *** the “reaveal in finder ” function.
Now you can click the folder icon（On the right ) to open the location of the files in finder.
The "click and go" concept is how iLifeTouch wants their apps to make users lives easier one app at a time.
deleted what I needed
UPDATE: August 12, 2015
Just have to come in and say this is by far my most favorite app on my Mac, all of them. Some people are saying it does not work, but you must be signed in as administrator for it to work, or have those privileges. This app is fantastic and removes everything relating to the app it is zapping. I have os yosemite 10.10.4 and it works perfect. Thanks a bunch for this outstanding app!!
I just have to come back and tell you that this is the BEST app to delete apps. It seriously works perfect! Congrats!

Dangerous For Novice Use
I have tried to use this on occasion for a number of months. I don't care what some of these 5 star reviewers are saying--all I can say is that it often will find files to delete that are CLEARLY not associated with the app in question. As long as you carefully examine the list and make judgments to uncheck irrelevant files, then that is one thing. But it is another to just assume that it has correctly searched your drive for relevant files, and then blindly hit the ZAP button. Do it enough times, and I assure you that you will break an app, and will be wondering later what caused your other apps to break, most likely without ever recognizing the cause.
Furthermore, I keep finding that it doesn't really find everything related to the targeted app, so I am wondering exactly what it is doing to generate a list of files to delete. Often files are left in the ~/Library folder, and even in the /Applications folder that are adjacent to the binary itself!!! So who knows what else is being left around. So it seems these favorable reviewers are not particularly technically savvy, and are only checking to see if the main app is being deleted, in which case you could just drag your app to the trash to achieve the same effect. Surely there is a better app deleter out there.
Do not waste your money.
Very not happy. Cannot drag and drop at all. Does not work as advertised. Cannot search.
