About Open with Application

You can either install using the Alcatraz plugin manager or by building it yourself.

Building the project will install the plug-in in the '~/Library/Application Support/Developer/Shared/Xcode/Plug-ins' folder. Simply remove it and restart Xcode to uninstall the plugin.
