    Just drag the app into the Trash, and delete it. Easy as that and twice as simple. ;)

    If the application doesn't have an uninstaller, it's as simple as dragging the application to the trash. This does often leave behind some tiny preferences files in your home folder, but that's nothing to worry about. If you're a bit anal about getting rid of everything, you can use a tool called AppZapper (google for it) to delete application including preferences.
