    I've seen apps such as AppZapper and CleanApp that are useful for removing OSX apps and all their files, but they all have a paid version which makes me think there will be limitations on the free version.

    Could anybody recommend a good (and free) app remover that will delete apps as well as any other files that are associated with them?

    The various paid and free app remover programs always leave some stuff behind. GJ Studios has a good link for best ways to fully delete an app.

    The most effective method for complete app removal is manual deletion:
