    throw in trash

    or use an app like udelete or appzapper

    however, throw in trash will be sufficient

    All you have to do is drag the application to the trash.

    related files can be found in the following locations:
    /Users/<<UserName>>/Library/Preferences (usually begin with com. )
    /Users/<<UserName>>/Library/Application Support (usually a folder with the application name on it)

    I use Appzapper for applications that I have copied directly to my applications folder. Just so that it deletes any preference files associated with the app.

    My general rule is that if I have installed the application using an Installer program I check that it has an uninstaller and use that instead.
