Did you ever wonder what would happen if a game studio wrote a disk scanner using its game engine? Wonder no more. Introducing Disk Falcon, a brand-new disk space scanning utility for OS X. Based on highly acclaimed game engine used in "Ultraviolet Dawn", Disk Falcon shines with the polish of over three years of engine development and testing.
Every single detail in the interface is smooth, polished, and animated. Nothing just suddenly appears on the screen. And it's not just the beauty and the futuristic interface design - Disk Falcon will quickly analyze the contents of a drive or a folder, laying out exactly what is occupying the space on your hard drive (or even on networked drives).
The results can be broken down by individual files, file types, or ages, and presented in either doughnut or bar chart (and, of course, these animate as well while the scan is ongoing). Unneeded files or folders can be dragged and dropped onto the special bin button to be queued up for deletion later.
Disk Falcon even comes with a sci-fi inspired vocal responses to your actions within the program (which can be turned off if desired).

What's New in Version 1.11
Assorted stability improvements.
Infficiant. Poorly Implemented.
This app crashes regurlarly on my computer. While the app does make it possible to hunt down large folders that could use cleaning, the interface is clunky and takes time to use effectively. Also, this app integrates poorly in the Mac OS environment. Full screen doesn't get its own space, instead it jams up whichever desktop you are on.
