The mobile phone has changed its face from being a simple talk gadget to a complete connectivity experience tool. Today, the mobile phone allows us to place calls, be online, store files, listen to music and do pretty much everything a computer can do.

Storing files on the phone is as important as storing them on the computer nowadays and with this boon, all the problems experienced with file storage on a computer are also ported to a mobile device.

One big problem we all face is disk space usage. There might be many apps to erase junk files but it would be equally interesting to see what apps are using most of the storage. Android is the next big mobile OS and DiskUsage is the app you would like to check out on an Android powered device.

For one thing that impressed me, was the navigation in the app. whenever you select a folder, the app loads the subdirectories and files in a columnar view. Each column from this view is divided into rows, which can be further expanded with a tap.



I totally loved this app and love exploring my storage content in a cool fashion. I miss an option to move files, and open files when selecting them. These features would have made this app, complete. You all should definitely try this app.
