    Do the apps you want to remove have an uninstaller? Of so...use it.

    If the app doesn't have an installer, in most cases you can just drag the app from the Applications folder to the Trash Bin and empty it. You can also use AppCleaner to do a bit more cleaning, i.e., getting rid of plist (configuration) files and so on..
