This is an awesome little utility. It is attractive, unobtrusive and has a very small footprint memory-wise. Just a quick single-finger down gesture with my Magic Mouse at the top of the screen and I am presented with the clipboard, commonly-used files that used to clutter my desktop and perhaps most importantly of all, a notepad. It is well worth the purchase price.

I was using Unclutter for 2 weeks and the app is easy to use and quite useful - but I had to remove it because it slowed down the system boot time to a crawl. My OSX 10.9.1 booted from SSD in under 20 seconds before installing Unclutter - with Unclutter the full boot takes almost 2 minutes!!! Removed Unclutter and I'm back to < 20 sec boot time.

I'm booting from SSD as well and the boot times haven't changed an iota from before installing Unclutter. Incidentally, I LOVE this app! It is never going to be uninstalled from my system. It is so convenient to mouse swipe down and I use it constantly.

Unclutter + Hazel = clean desktop + easy access to files removed from the desktop. I set Hazel to move any files over 2 days old from my desktop to the Unclutter folder (which i placed in my home folder) now files that used to be on my desktop are much easier to access, and my desktop remains pristine.

As far as I can tell, anything in the files box is actually moved to an application support directory for unclutter. I have a lot of network and usb mounted drives on my desktop and I wanted to put them in unclutter and it started to move the whole contents of the drive locally.. doh.
Otherwise, its OK. .0 to .1 cpu and 67.5MB RAM footprint.

Right, Unclutter moves files to its folder rather than making aliases to them. In future versions we'll think if we can also somehow make aliases when needed. BTW in the next update, you'll be able to set any folder to be used for Unclutter file storage. Thanks for your feedback!

FYI: The path to the Unclutter folder is ~/Library/Containers/com.softwareambience.Unclutter/Data/Library/Application Support/Unclutter

Whenever Apple requires devs to sandbox such folders, I immediately locate them and drag an alias to my Finder sidebar for easy access.

Unclutter has been a real godsend for me and my (formerly) very cluttered desktop. This team has done an excellent job with both this and Daisy Disk.

@Prince_Isaac Latest versions of Unclutter allow you to move your Unclutter files and notes out of the sandboxed container to any folder of your choice. Particularly, you can move it to a folder inside Dropbox or another similar service and have your stuff automatically sync across multiple Macs.

Thanks for your feedback! :)

Files in Unclutter's Folder can't be found with search! Because it is locate in Library Folder?

Nice app, very handy !
Would be even nicer if you could copy/past the content of the clipboard and use it as a clipboard manager as well.
Gonna use this a lot, one of those little apps that makes productivity just a little more productive...

Good, but once a day have to kill it in Terminal as it is running at near 90% of my CPU and has frozen in the Menu Bar.

@Welshpat007: The CPU freezing is a rare bug, we have already fixed it (hopefully :) ), the update is coming soon.
