Uninstall Things for Mac OS X

Uninstall Things Application in Mac OS X – Things removal steps from Mac OS X

Want to uninstall Things apps? Not able to find a way to uninstall Things completely from your Mac Machine? Is your Mac machine giving error after manually uninstalling Things application?

Uninstalling Things in mac is just a different approach than in Windows OS. Windows OS provides a option to uninstall application or application manufactures provides uninstaller with the application. But in Mac OS X there is nothing like uninstall utility. To uninstall the Things you simply need to drag & drop the Things application bundles to trash, that's it. STOP this is not the end there is more to properly uninstalling the Things from your machine.

Things Bundles – The Application Bundle

Drag & Drop leaves the associated files of Things application. Normally, it is thought that all the associated files of a application is saved in the one folder but it is not so. Things supported files & preference files are saved in other location than the Things Package folder. So you need to get all these files deleted manually. Deleting all the left overs of Things is not that easy, you need to find all the location where Things has saved the files. Some of the location where Things would have saved the files are ~/Library/Preferences/[] ~/Library/Application Support/[]
