SDCard Watcher is a tool to help you identify the apps cluttering your storage with obscure directories.
Ever wanted to know which game created that strange save directory?
Unsure which directories are from uninstalled apps, and which ones you should still keep?
For appholics installing lots of apps, SDCard Watcher is an invaluable tool to keeping the storage clean.
SDCard Watcher runs a background service that monitors the SDCard base directory (or any directory) for changes. When a new file is added, it makes a note of what app was currently running in the foreground at the time.
The background service utilizes the kernel's inotify feature, and therefore uses virtually no resources.
NOTE: Since the app can only identify what was running in the foreground at the time, it cannot correctly identify new files from background apps - instead the foreground app will be blamed.
NOTE: If the app doesn't seem to be detecting changes on the sdcard, try enabling notification icon in the settings to help keep the service alive.
