How to Uninstall Apps Cleanly

When switching from PC to Mac, I once wondered how apps could be uninstalled since most apps don’t have an uninstaller, and you wouldn’t be able to find anything called “Programs and Features” in the System Preferences (equivalent to Control Panel on PC).

Actually, to uninstall an app on Mac is quite simple — just Move it to the Trash will do.

But to ensure no “tails” are left behind after the uninstallation, one can install a free App called AppCleaner.  It not only helps uninstall an app but also can effectively remove “tails” associated with the app being trashed.
