Many of us download apps to test them, then delete those that don't meet our needs. Sometimes installers come with uninstallers, but often they don't, the uninstallers are lost, or the user simply deletes the app without realizing that pieces are left behind (e.g., Crashplan). Are there apps available to purge this crap from our systems, before it builds up to toxic levels?" MacInTouch 8:43 AM

As well, I can use the iPhone app to make sure that I restock the stuff that I liked and avoid the stuff that was dross while in the stores. ... For simple record keeping I've moved to iOS Notes!
