How To Easily Remove A Stubborn Application From Your Mac

Usually a removal of any application is an easy process in Mac but some applications won’t accept drag and drop process. These type of app files captures unnecessary space in your hard disk and sometimes start giving you unwanted errors. So here is how you remove stubborn apps easily as longer as they are not part of mac’s package. I mean you can’t remove iPhoto or iTunes from your computer but you can any other app you downloaded yourself.
