Automatic desktop organizer with Smart folders.

Overview

Declutter is an elegant solution to Desktop clutter that every Mac user faces. It automatically keeps your desktop organised and clean by moving the files on the Desktop to smart folders using rules based on file names and extensions.

  • Beautiful Desktop - We all love when we buy our new Mac. It is the face of the device. Declutter helps you to keep it that way and even makes it more beautiful.
  • Smart Folders - Declutter helps you to create beautiful and intelligent folders in your desktop. Each folder is configured with rules so that the desktop is cleaned based on them.
  • FileName or Extension - The rules for intelligent folders in desktop can be created based on both file names or file extensions so that the clean up can be comprehensive and at the same time granular.
  • Complex Rules - The rules can be configured with multiple file name or file extension conditions. This enables the app to declutter the desktop with accuracy like human intelligence.
  • Folder Colors and Icons - Declutter enables you to add beautiful colours and icons to the intelligent folders that you create to make the already clean desktop more beautiful.
  • Automatic Declutter - Declutter enables you to configure automatic clean up for the timing configured to ensure that the desktop is always clean.
  • Instant Reach - Declutter is available in menubar always if you enable it to launch on start and can be activated in a single click or configured hot key stroke.
  • Launch on Start - You can configure Declutter to launch on start so that the app is launched silently and keeps the desktop clean automatically.

Declutter is a young app at v 1.05 but should not yet have been released. I downloaded and tested and find several features missing and other oddities that make me uncomfortable with this app. 1 - on the window to setup a filter when you click to enter the Folder Name there is no "Browse" or "Select" method of entering the path. In fact I don't know where the folder will even be located. 2 - so I go to HELP and pick "Help OrganizeDesk" and there is no help. None on the www site either. 3 - "OrganizeDesk" I think and sure enough "About" has "About OrganizeDesk" so did they buy and rename an app but don't know how to change the "About" and "Help" menu selections? 3 - back to the setup filter window: no TAB between the three fields on the window supported. 4 - second field is for file name and I expect to use some wildcards as Hazel supports. Well - no HELP and no support. So I guess for each individual file I've got to create a separate filter. I routinely have 30-40 similar named files for a big project and Hazel lets me filter them all with one rule and wildcards. 5 - okay, I'll setup a 2nd rule with a 2nd file to complete my testing. This generates a 2nd "Test" folder in Declutter's main window (which I still do not know where it will end up). Without clicking on each "Test" folder I have no idea what the filter rule is. So if I manually generate 30 rules for "Test" folder I would forever be clicking each of these to find a specific rule. 6 - last is a bug after having created the 2 "Test" rules. I clicked one to look back at the 3 fields, made no changes, clicked "Done" and got an error about Overlapping Rules. I could only get out by changing the file extension part of the rule (which was nothing like the other "Test") from jpg to jpg2. No idea where the overlap was that simply looking back at a rule created. NOT a mature app nor a useful app at this point

I installed an older version some time ago - worked well, even as "nagware" to upgrade. Decided to "bite the bullet" and the link in the Declutter app sent me to a 404 dead page. Contacted developer - said they would check it out. I got tire of waiting - so purchased through the Apple App store - and installed there. App is dead. Crashes immediately on launch. Contacted developer who said they are "working on it", with the instructions to use another of their apps to uninstall then reinstall from another source. I came here and downloaded this version (a TRIAL) and it works just fine - but again, it is a 15 day trial. I have contacted the developer yet again asking for either an update to the app store version, or a registration code to use this version. SO far, no response.

Great app for keeping desktop clean and organize files to folders , one of the most elegant and high quality apps for mac. Can declutter by file formats or file extensions, automatic declutter by schedule or manually. Fully customized and very handy tool for productivity.

While the concept could be interesting for many people and better than nothing, the app suffers in my opinion of various limitations and missing features that question its usefulness. While the goal is to declutter the desktop, the app can only create folders on the dekstop, not elsewhere (with aliases to the desktop), and cannot create subfolders. This means that if someone really wants to have a proper classification and declutter its desktop, he could end up with dozens of folders on the desktop... Also, apps provided with macOS (Terminal, Automator) let the user performs the same tasks for free (although it requires some more work). One key feature that is presented is the folder icon customisation. It is actually limited: the same folder icon is re-used, with a "watermark" added in the center, chosen by the user among a limited set of icons. Hazel is much more capable, moving files located not just on the desktop but in any other location, and moving these to any folder (not just on the desktop). It is also more expensive, so users really have to check their needs / best process.

The problem here is that it won't accept my email and serial number, even though I have paid for it, I emailed the developer twice and no response, not even an auto responder. Poor support and poor response just spoils it for me every time.

"Declutter is the solution to a problem that every Mac user faces…" NOT. My Desktop is clean, EVERYTIME. That's a statement for windows user.

I think it's quite common for Mac users to save files on their desktop. Every Mac user I know does that. It's a common temporary storage space.

I have hundreds of files on my desktop that get sorted into sub folders. ;) I use a different app for that. Then at some point I move them off of the desktop.

Hi, Thanks a lot for taking your time to write to us, we value your time and feedback for the best interest of the app. Declutter is one of the top sold app in our site and people are happy and there are couple of things which we could have done is made an video or help document, which we will do soon. We would have happily supported you and helped you via remote desktop and do a walkthrough of how the declutter works. You can always send email to support@macappstudio.com and we are happy to help you. Declutter is a young app at v 1.05 but should not yet have been released. I downloaded and tested and find several features missing and other oddities that make me uncomfortable with this app. 1. Folders are created in your desktop, you can see the screenshots which shows different set of smart folders that you can create with Name or Extension Filters 2. We agree how intuttive an app is, we need to have a help document or video we are making it and we will make sure its there, we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused due to that, because we love supporting our customers and can do walk-through in remote desktop if you want. 2. Initially we developed the App with this Name Organise Desktop and Organise Desk later, but one point the name was not available and we have to keep a single name and we renamed to Declutter. 3. Dont ever say something without knowing it, we are humans and developers ( not saints) and we get angry when you talk about creation, as every app is a baby for us and we took months of hardwork without spending much time for family working day and night just for the customer experience, and we do understand there are very nice customers who understand and email us if there is a typo or an issue. 4 - This makes so much sense and we will incorporate the Tab 4 - What is Hazel we will checkout, between you can create filters using mutliple, we will explain soon on how to do in a video 5 - This makes perfectly sense and this is a valuable feedback we would be happy to give you a listview soon. 6 - We purposefully dont want to edit and confuse the rules as it may effect the files and we dont want that risk to happen. App Maturity depends on perspective where an app without any bugs or issues is called Matured app according to us, App with n number of functionality can be added and there is no end for it :-) We valuable your time and effort in entering this comment. As we had couple of very valuable user feedback and we will try to incorporate for the best interest of our customers. We are happy to help you, you can always reach us support@macappstudio.com Have a great day ahead. With Lots of Love and Regards Suresh and George

Dear Suresh and George, Would really like to see a Tutorial/Video/ScreenCast in order make a purchase decision. I am not sure, I'd like an unknown person/entity remote desktop-ing on my Mac, so you guys should really get a App review going :).
