Memory Map shows you what and where is eating up your Android device's storage

Memory Map shows you what and where is eating up your Android device's storage
Felt like you could use some extra help with your Android disk space menagerie? Let Memory Map - Disk Manager lend you a hand. What it does is to have a brief look at your Android device's file system and come up with a gorgeous interactive 'map' of its contents down to the last byte-sized folder and file. The map is laid out in blocks whose visual size corresponds to their file size (or memory footprint, to be more specific). 

You can zoom in at will and check out details about a specific file, open it inside the associated app, or straight up delete it. The choice of shades and colors is purposefully subdued, and the font the app uses fits in very nice. The whole thing looks like reading a magazine - or playing a board game - based on the contents of your Android file system. 

Honestly, the app doesn't do anything else, and is limited in that it's only able to access the storage/emulated/0 folder on your device. But if you're one to appreciate the beauty of elaborately visualised data, and especially if you've been unable to figure out where all your storage suddenly went, you'll certainly fall for the app. It's a free download from Google Play.

It's a fancy way to show what's already in setting -> apps

It is more than a fancy setting, this shows you exactly what and where is the biggest file so you can go and see if you can dispose it. This one is a copy of a windows program called WinDirStat. I use it frequently for my not so spacious SSD

You did by clicking on this article, anyway I've never seen such feature on TouchWiz, would you care to show me a screenshot/video of it?

ES File Explorer has this built in with the "SD Card Analyst"... It shows you files and folders in descending order from the biggest size to lowest

Not the most easy to read system for frequent use. It's interesting for an article to attract readers without bore them

I don't get how anyone wouldn't know where there storage is going. You install a game and the data downloads after, so then you know the game has over 100mb of storage data in it.... you also film videos from your camera and then you know where that storage is going..... and so on.... You just need to keep your phone tidy and understand what you have downloaded or filmed etc... You do not need any app to help you with this, it's common sence
