Use it more than I ever thought I would

I bought a macbook pro with a 150gig hard drive. I quickly found that was NOT ENOUGH. This app has been a life saver. So easy to see what’s taking up all my space and then quickly deleting it if it’s useless.

Really Great

Space Gremlin is an excellent utility at the right price. Things in the App Store lately seem to be overpriced, but this app in particular makes me happy to support the developer; I didn’t get robbed. Check out the demo on the app’s website, then toss the developer a few bucks. Kudos!

great app

This is a great app to see where your hard drive or other disks are filling all the space.
