The new amazing icon app is designed by Pablo J. Malacara
Visual Differ compares side-by-side folders and files using colors to visually show differences. From the Folder view it's possible to make operations on folders and files like copying or deleting.
It's possible to compare quickly directories choosing base folders from the context menu. Using the File Filter feature is possible to hide from visualization specific files like .git, .svn directories or the omnipresent .DS_Store files.
The folders comparison can be done using different techniques from the fastest "compare only date and size" to the fine-grained byte-by-byte comparison.
The files comparison is done using the unix diff command this choice makes the result quick, standard and reliable.
It's possible to save work sessions then quickly reopen them to compare directories hierarchies or directly two specific files.

Not worth it

Can’t select folder from within Library

Great app to compare folders / files. A must have!

UPDATE 08/2015:
What a an awesome app! I don’t use it daily but when I need it it delivers! Still easy to use, lighting fast and works just like it should be!
Well done, developer!!! 5 STAR APP!!!

It works as advertised and works great. One of the essential tools that you must have if you work with files or folders. Comparing takes just a split second but will save many minutes of manual labor and one big headache. It’s a FANTASTIC app! Thank you, developers!
