I'm using Daisydisk for some days now and since I installed it, I cleared 40 Gbyte of disk space (which is a lot on a 320 Gbyte hard drive).
Most of the files I found with this app were files I didn't even know of.

10 Gbyte were left by an iMovie project I messed with a year ago and just forgot about it.
Another 10 Gbyte were lying around in an archive in a subfolder of a subfolder of a subfolder as a backup I made and forgot to delete.
The other files were old music files I copied when I migrated from my old PC to my Macbook. I didn't even listen to one of those files in about 2 years so obviously I didn't need them anymore.

The UI speaks for itself. I love the circles and the animations and how the app visualizes the disk space in use.
As some people below pointed out, there are free solutions but in my opinion they don't come anywhere near Daisydisk regarding speed and ease of use.

I used iTunes to convert my CDs to MP3 and I never understood why people bothered to use 3rd party apps till I tried to convert an old CD that my father gave me. It had some scratches but iTunes didn't gave me an error message so I thought that everything is fine.

It wasn't iTunes left out 1 song and another 1 had jitters. So yea, most of the time iTunes may do as intended but the fact that it doesn't tell you when something goes wrong is a no-go.

XLD works very fine and fast. I wouldn't call the UI beautiful but it is easy to use and you can even save profiles. I love it.

My cloud service of choice for some years now. I like the new update but I don't understand why it is not possible to drag and drop files to the menu bar icon.

This would be a nice feature.

And I would love to see a update option somewhere because autoupdates are very slow and sometimes months behind the release dates.
The developers state in the FAQ that this is intended to prevent problems.

Oh, I didn't know that. The new Evernote has this feature and I wondered why not more apps use it. Thank you for the answer.

Alfred 2 is somehow faster than Alfred 1. It is the best app launcher on Mac.
I am not the command line type of guy but I am starting to become one with Alfred.
Everything is so much faster because you don't have to remove your hands from the keyboard.

I am using the free version as the power pack is too expensive for me right now but if I had the money I would buy it instantly, especially for the workflow feature.

When I first read that MS has bought Skype I hoped that they will undo all the mistakes that the developers introduced after version 2. And I hoped that they would open the protocol for 3rd party apps.
This didn't happen and the app gets bloated more and more. Skype isn't important anymore as most of my friends now use Apple's and Facetime or Google for chat and VOIP.

I tried some other apps but for me AppCleaner is the best. Why? Because I tried to remove the same app with the other cleaners but AppCleaner found the most related files.

So, why should you use a program like this?
I dunno, to be honest, because it makes no sense to remove 1kb plist files and pref.panes for space.
Keeping those files is better most of the time because when you reinstall an app all your settings are saved in those files.

But I used MS Windows for some years so I guess it is a bad habit to "clean" my hard drive till I have to reinstall the OS. :D

I like it.
It has a clean UI and it is very easy to find new music. I love the fact, that you can open rdio in every browser and it looks like in the app.
