Having problems in using CloudApp? Trying to uninstall CloudApp but end up with incomplete removal? If you run into troubles in deleting unwanted apps on Mac, read through this post and get to know how to effectively and thoroughly remove apps.
Now we will talk about four crucial questions, to guide you to complete the removal.
Here’s a tip that many Mac beginners may neglect: before you carry out the uninstall, you should first check if the target app is in use or not. If an app is currently running, you will not be able to uninstalling by deleting it to the Trash.
To shut down the app, you can (1) right click on the app icon in the Dock and choose Quit. Meanwhile, you can take other available ways to quit an active application, like:
(2) Find the app icon in the top menu bar, click on it and choose Quit [app name];
(3) Launch Activity Monitor in Dock, type the app name in the search box, select the process, click X button on the upper left corner, and click Quit in the pop-up dialog;
(4) Press Command – Option – ESC(Escape) to bring up the Force Quit Applications window, select the app you want to stop running, and click Force Quit button
Besides, in the latest version of macOS, the app will stay in Dock if you recently open it up. You can right click on CloudApp in Dock and choose Options > Remove from Dock. After doing those preparation works, you can start the standard uninstall.
Generally, you can uninstall an app by deleting it in the Applications folder and Trash.
Note that the act of emptying the Trash is irrevocable. If there are other items in the Trash, you can delete CloudApp individually there to avoid unnecessary risk. To do so, right click on its icon in Trash, choose Delete Immediately, and click Delete button.
Additionally, if the CloudApp is the App Store version (which means you download and install this software in Mac App Store), you can also uninstall it by this way:

Most third party apps will create associated files and folder in different system directories, and those related items will not be deleted along with the removal of the application. To sweep out the app leftovers, you can conduct a detection by utilizing the Search feature in the Finder.
Important: don’t touch anything that are irrelevant to CloudApp. Mistakenly deleting other items might affect the normal use of other apps or even the system. We advise that, after deleting CloudApp-related items into Trash, leave them there for a few days, thus you can still reverse the change if your system start functioning abnormal.
