On elementary OS I accidentally added the daily ppa and updated the machine on a daily basis.

Now i want to remove all the apps that are installed by this ppa. How to do that?

Can i do this automatically or do i have to search for all installed packages and remove/downgrade them one by one?

I already removed the PPA from sources.list.d/

You can install a small app called ppa-purge. It will uninstall/downgrade all the apps & libraries installed.

To install ppa-purge, open a terminal and:

sudo apt-get install ppa-purge 

To more info, visit the manpage
