I used to use AppClean for my uninstall needs, but their latest version doesn't let you do that anymore, and I'm wary of using the older, legacy version cause as time goes on, it'll only get creakier and creakier. I'd love an app that stays updated with this capability.

So, anyone have recommendations for an app that I can use to uninstall apps?

Thanks!

Have you tried Hazel? Hazel will check when you delete an app and see if there are any related files for it that can be deleted also. It may not be 100%, but it's worked well for me. And that's not even the apps main purpose, just a side benefit!

I often use AppCleaner not for tossing applications, but for deleting the prefs. You drop an app on it and you can use the checkbox to just delete some of the support files, handy for troubleshooting and such.
