MACWORLD GEM - End the chaos of your unorganized files.
Take a look at your Desktop, or the Downloads folder - is it a little disorganized? Or maybe really disorganized? Don't worry, it's really easy to clean up. Download Folder Tidy right now and choose the folder to organize and with one click you'll see the files get sorted into the appropriate sub folders (Pictures, Word Documents, Numbers, Archives, etc).
Need a little more control? Open up the preferences, change the order of the built-in rules, or start to make custom rules. Use the powerful predicate editor to make pretty much any rule you'd like. For example, create a rule to move all photos with a size bigger than 5MB and older than a year into a folder. Pretty neat, eh?
Check out some of the awesome features:
• Organize your files into subfolders based on the file type and/or rules.
• Use one of the many built-in rules, or create powerful ones based on predicates.
• Choose what types of files to clean up.
• Choose files and folders to ignore during a clean up.
• Choose where to put the cleaned up files and folders.
• Options to ignore aliases, folders and anything with a label.
• Ability to undo the clean up.
• Over 600 five star ratings internationally.

Desktop cleaned up - I had a mess on my desk top and am always saying I need to organize this. It cleaned it up in about 20 seconds. Everything was placed in logical folders in the main folder I asked it to. Was simple. Warning, it does take everything off your desktop, but it does ask first if there are things you want left alone.
Crashes every single time - unusable - I have hard a bunch of hard drives with photos that need to be organized and catalogued. I thought this app might help, but after purchasing it I discovered it not only can’t extract .PSD files (the whole reason I bought it), but when I ask it to extract .JPEG files it promptly crashes. Every time. What a waste of money.

Incredibly useful and fast - I use this app to keep my Desktop and unruly Downloads folder neat and organized. If you consider how much you’ll use this app over time fight back the chaos in your digital life, it’s well worth the price of admission.
