This tiny little piece of software does exactly what it says it does ... it literally 'downsizes' every Universal application on your Intel Mac ... and a lot of the standard PPC applications with multi-launguage files ...

The standard Apple applications are the worst offenders - heavily embedded with multi-language and help files you'll never need - if your native language is English ... I saved 1.45GBs of disk space just from condensing my Apple apps with Downsizer ... like iTunes, iDVD, iMovie, iPhoto, Safari etc ... they open super-quick as a result ...

Definetly try this this out ...

Note: as at June 17th 2006 - when I ran this, Toast 7.2 & MS Messenger 5.1.1 - that didn't work after using Downsizer ... also, read the ReadMe file first - the Developer notes other applications which won't downsize - notable the Adobe Suite and Acrobat and Microsft Office 2004 ...

But overall - very nifty - and don't be freaked out you're going to damage anything - the original application is still left on your HDD untouched - so if afterwards, an application has trouble opening or won't load - just trash it and re-use the original ...

Useful App. I don't know why someone hasn't thought of this before. It would be nice if there was a batch convert function and drag & drop. But yes, for example Pages was 800MB before conversion and 250MB after

Someone had thought of it. Monolingual does this and more.

In addition to the above list, Macaroni has also done this for a very long time. And it does it on a schedule so it cleans up all your recent installs and you don't even have to remember to run it.

Another utility that does this is DeLocalizer.

In any case it's good to have all the choices.
