I hear you got some apps on your Mac that need to be "taught a lesson." If some of those apps need to go swim with the fishes, here's an offer you can't refuse. AppZapper 2.0, the "uninstaller Apple forgot," just rolled into town, and it brought a Hit List.

Cheese-errific puns aside, AppZapper 2.0 has, of course, been redesigned for the Age of Aquarius Snow Leopard, but it ain't just a pretty face. The upgrade is packing a new Hit List feature, which allows you to browse and filter all the apps on your Mac and see how much space they take up. You can filter by apps, widgets, preference panes, and even system-wide plugins (though apparently not per-app plugins like's MailTags or Bullstorm's Keyword Manager for iPhoto). Click an app, see all of its data and various support files, and click the Zap button to send it all on that aforementioned swim.

AppZapper 2.0's other new trick is MyApps, a space for storing licenses for the apps that are in your good graces. You can enter text-based licenses or even drag-and-drop license files, which are becoming increasingly popular among developers.

AppZapper 2.0 respectfully requests that you run it on Mac OS X 10.6.2 Snow Leopard or later. A free demo is available, but if you want a piece of the action, it'll cost you $13.
