What is SpaceControl? What does it do?

SpaceControl is designed to be simple. A text will appear in your menu bar showing the amount of free space on your startup disk. Click on the menu item and submenus will appear, showing information about all disks or volumes mounted on your desktop.

If you want SpaceControl to start every time you log on to your Mac you can choose that option in the Preference window. You can also make some choices about how you want the menu item to appear.

What will SpaceControl do if I run out of free space on my startup disk?

SpaceControl will warn you when the free more...

There have been a number of times, while I was reorganizing my disk drives, when my free space went to low - causing me quite bothersome problems. Space Control would have saved me from these problems - had I had it installed at the time. Since free space normally gets too low when I am much too busy to keep checking up up on it in the Finder's Get Info window; I GREATLY APPRECIATE the opportunity that SpaceControl will now send me an eMail warning (as well as its menubar status) to keep me aware of what is happening behind my back.

The Finder already supports showing the free space (and the total space) underneath the name of each volume. Click on your desktop, choose 'Show View Options' and check the 'Show Item Info' box.

Well, first of all, you can't see that when your working with other applications(applications that covers the desktop). And secound (the most important) if you had read the information about spaceControl you should know that SpaceControls primal field is to Warn when the free space goes below the limit you have choosed.

So it's just silly to compare SpaceControl with Finder's buildt in function... Hey man, SpaceControl is free!


Developer says it's FREE. NOT.

It was free when it was outside Mac App Store! feels like you have a personal vendetta with this app. If you don't like it don't download it, easy as that!


To Riotgames Production: that is a rather harsh comment and where you got that idea is beyond my understanding. Seriously i would like to try before i buy. Is there a money back from the app store if i don't like your application ?


Riotgames Production, Wts has a point. it says "Free" above, but it is NOT. It is nothing to do with any vendetta, it is an out right false information. Why can't you update the Price on MacUpdate to reflect the current situation? It wasted my time for clicking your app in my search result because it says "Free".
