Tool to keep your Mac clean and tidy.

Overview

Sponge is a tool to keep your Mac clean and tidy. With Sponge you can reclaim your disk space by:
  • Removing applications. Sponge will tell you what applications are installed on your system, how much space they use, and where they are located. If you find any applications you no longer need, Sponge will remove them safely and swiftly for you.
  • Sweeping disk hogs. If you're running out of disk space but don't know where to start cleaning up, let Sponge show you which files and directories take up the most space. Once you've tracked them down, let Sponge conveniently swipe them off your disk.
  • Finding duplicates. With all the attachments, memos, letters and other documents with which we are flooded in today's world, it's easy to lose track where we've saved what. Sponge makes finding and deleting duplicate files a breeze.

It is interesting indeed, but performs like an early beta and it's not at the same level as alternative programs. For example, to uninstall applications I prefer TinkerTool System. For finding duplicate files, I prefer Araxis Find Duplicate Files and FileBuddy. Both TinkerTool System and File Buddy offer dozens of powerful, well-implemented features. I'm not mentioning the Disk Hogs option since it crashed on me, but I also have programs that have that specific feature. I will not rate the software, but in its current state it is not something I would use.

I just replaced my existing version of Sponge with v1.4.0 only to find that it does not work with Mac OS X 10.4 ...yet the requirements on MacUpdate clearly state '10.4 or later'. Now I've lost the version that DID work!!!

I could buy it as a PROMO today for $8.- - but Is it worth it? Sweeping disk hogs: I already have an App for that task, called WhatSize ($13.-). This feature here is really not worth any $$$ at all. ... get it free from OmniGroup: OmniDiskSweeper ... or get PRO with WhatSize (id-design, inc.) Finding duplicates: well I dont use such a tool yet (albeit I sure have some duplicates on my HDD's - nothing wrong with that so far). What would be interesting, are the metadata of files, that are named exactly the same... well to keep it short: The User Interface of Sponge for that task is a big LOL. Removing applications: that is the only thing that looks promising, but I dont have any comparison, because I do it manually (when needed). It seems to me that is has very long to find my Apps on my HDD (even if all is at its right place). Would be nice to sort my Apps by places, where they are stored. (OK, Sorry - I am a Power User) But nevertheless, it does a poor job in finding all the Software bits stored in my User Library. What's the deal, if I have to do it again manually, afterwards ?? I cease my case and recommend reading the comment below from DON MORRIS.

I was looking for the "Disk Hogs" feature, so I'll only comment on that. On my 250MB disk, about 75% full, the scan took much more time than any of the other utilities I tried. Also, considering only that feature, OmniDiskSweeper is $26 less (free). Add AppZapper ($13), AppDelete ($5) or AppTrap (free), along with any number of duplicate file utilities, and you can pay half as much (or nothing) for the same features as Sponge.

"Find duplicates" is not the feature I was looking for or commenting upon.

You won't believe how much long forgotten junk I found on my hard drive using the sweep disk hogs feature. Highly recommended.
