AppTrap 1.1.7 is Lion ready

Uninstalling a Mac app is breathlessly easy — just drag it into the Trash and empty. Except that it’s often not that clean or simple. App munge bedevils every serious Mac user and most of the apps that solve the problem aren’t free.

There are app uninstallers and then there’s AppTrap. Whereas I can’t promise that AppTrap will remove every bit of app munge, it is free and seems to work very well — plist, support, etc. files just go away.

To delete an app + munge, just drag it to the Trash and, when you empty the Trash, AppTrap jumps into action to ask if you really want to delete the app and it associated files — that simple.

Thereupon, version 1.1.7 brings one big change: OS compatibility. Whereas we gain Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, PPC Macs fall off the table as AppTrap now requires Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard — bye, bye OS X 10.5 Leopard.

So, AppTrap 1.1.7 (release notes) is big cat ready and can be downloaded here.
