I haven't seen my desktop in so long, always got an app running. Do people still use their desktops for anything other than temporary storage?

@blainehatab I think you mean "deskbottom", because no.

Hey guys, I wrote Clean just for fun back in the day. So funny its icon is default wallpaper X version ago. Anyway, I didn't bother with update expecting Sandboxing not allowing it do what it does in a user friendly way. I need to automatically move items from Desktop to a location in filesystem. I think sandbox would annoy users with open dialogs and I'm not even sure a path can be allowed permanently. Otherwise I would update it in a heartbeat - it's a day of work and I just learned you can make a bit of cash with a simple text ad. (Have those in my new free app - Pomodoro One). Anyway thanks for all the upvotes and drop me a line if you wanna chat.

@fotofactorydk Checkout our App Declutter Just Launched not just hides the files but actually creates smartfolder and automatically keeps your desktop organised

i've been using this for over 2 years, it's the best app ever, basically runs a super simple automator script, and thats why there is no need for an update. It's genius. Simple but so powerful. keeps track of my days, all the stuff I work on that doesn't get organized or has somewhere to live, simply gets archived by folders with month and date on them, then backedup wirelessly onto my main local storage + DB. Always a blank desktop every morning, so damn Zenlike

Interesting idea. I just delete files that have been on my desktop for several days, because if they were actually important I would have dealt with them. Mostly screenshots anyway!

@lachlanjc You can actually change your default screenshots location: I found this a couple of months ago, and my desktop has never been tidier!
