Story of creation
For our work, we need a lot of disk space, which tends to run out quickly, so we have to manage its use. Before DaisyDisk, we used older tools, which did the job, but left much to be desired in terms of ease of use and efficiency.
Having a background in user interface design, we’ve created a tool that would serve our own needs, and also demonstrate the benefits of applying high-end design principles to a mundane thing like a disk utility — something no one cared to do before.
And it’s worked really well. A lot of bloggers appraised the original design and user experience of DaisyDisk, wrote about it, and the app instantly became very popular.
DaisyDisk’s first version was released in March 2009 and is being continuously developed up to this day.
Our Basic Principles
Experience over features
Features don’t matter, experience does. Who cares if the app promises to do everything but doesn’t do a single thing right?
It’s not enough to make the best app of its kind, one must continuously iterate to build the perfect app (even though it’s impossible).
Make great design, then implement it in code, not the other way around. By thinking in code it’s easy to lose the vision and end up in inferior solutions.
Surprise the customer with quality, yet make it affordable.
Respect the users and their privacy. Approach marketing in an honest way. Offer fair pricing models and no hidden catches. Make business on quality software and not the user’s data.
Software Ambience — the company behind DaisyDisk — is based in Kyiv 🇺🇦 Ukraine, and operates worldwide.
