Hi everybody,

I apologize for a bit of advertising myself. I have just published the
beta version of DaisyDisk, a small Mac OS X utility for freeing up
disk space by finding and deleting big, useless files. Why I think
it's relevant to ask IXDA members' opinion is because I've taken
special care (unlike competitors and free alternatives :) ) to the
program's interaction design and visual appeal. There are some fresh
ideas and tricks about data presentation and navigation. Still, I may
need some suggestions on improvements. Well, I don't want to bias
anyone any further, so here's the link, let me know what you think:


Any comments are welcome! Thanks.

Beautifully designed app. Please see my feedback below.

Scanning - would love to see more feedback such as time remaining (%
or otherwise) or possibly directories currently being scanned.

Results - would like clickable results/directories.

Results - smaller files & folders list is not clickable and
disappears when moving mouse off the graphic

Navigation buttons (back/forward) - I thought they would navigate the
directory tree (back button at least) but found it navigating my
history (actions)

That's all for now..
