FANTASTIC !! 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
