    I use AppZapper. It gets rid of the app, and all of the apps hidden files. Here is a link to their site: AppZapper - The uninstaller Apple forgot.

    You get 5 free zaps, if you like the app you should consider purchasing it.

    Meh If it wasnt for Ricky and his Bullsh1t attitude we would have given you a run for your money

    On uninstalling Apps.
    If it has a unnstaller in the .mpkg that came with the App USE IT if not you should be able to simply drag things to the trash.
    Now if you want to get rid of all those little files that come with them, as Brian suggested you can use something like that.

    I use AppTrap. FREE !!!!!!
    This little App is unobtrusive and sits in your preference pane in System Preferences. And when you drag something to trash it will then ask you if you want to delete all associated files/folders with it

    Cheers
    Dont forget to use the Reputation System if someone has helped you out !!!

    I'm surprised someone didn't ask you what apps you want to remove. There are some that came with your Mac that you MUST NOT remove (unless you enjoy trouble and data loss, of course).

    If we're talking third-party apps, carry on ...

    Removing GarageBand (the application) won't actually save a lot of space. Removing the "sample songs" and etc you will find in /Library/Application Support/GarageBand, on the other hand, will save you a couple of GB.
