Are you talking about OSX Fuse?? http://osxfuse.github.io/

This is an extension for OSX to allow you to read/write external drives formatted as NTFS and other file formats which are not supported by default in OSX.

Users with Windows-formatted drives and usb memory sticks use this to allow them to write files to these drives.

There will be no apps "depending on it" as it is a standalone system plugin but it can be useful ... why do you want to remove it?
