The new amazing icon app is designed by Pablo J. Malacara vonwhites.co
Visual Differ compares side-by-side folders and files using colors to visually show differences. From the Folder view it's possible to make operations on folders and files like copying or deleting.
It's possible to compare quickly directories choosing base folders from the context menu. Using the File Filter feature is possible to hide from visualization specific files like .git, .svn directories or the omnipresent .DS_Store files.
The folders comparison can be done using different techniques from the fastest "compare only date and size" to the fine-grained byte-by-byte comparison.
The files comparison is done using the unix diff command this choice makes the result quick, standard and reliable.
It's possible to save work sessions then quickly reopen them to compare directories hierarchies or directly two specific files.

I never write reviews, but ZOMG! - Seriously, I am gobsmacked at how much time this little app just saved me. Before it ocurred to me to search for an app that does this, I was going through my iTunes backup folder folder by folder to make sure everything is there. I am about to move to a new computer and it seems like every time I do, I lose about 5% of my music. NOT THIS TIME! It was so fast! I just dragged the backup folder onto one side of the interface and the current folder to the other side and, whoosh, in about 20 seconds it showed my a color-codedd comparison of about 50GB of music. It was immediateky obvious to me which files I hadn't backed up - mostly new albums by artists who already had a folder. I paid $3.99 for this app and would have been happy at twice or three times the price. If you need this functionality (and who doesn't?) get this app NOW.

Would be 5 if inline text diff supported - Great app. I would rate 5 star if inline text diff supported. Sometimes it’s just too much to save text to two files.
