[New App] Unclouded Is A Gorgeous Way To Manage Your Dropbox And Google Drive Space

Managing your Dropbox space on Windows or Mac isn't a terribly difficult affair - the platforms have tons of 3rd party disk usage analysis utilities and management tools that will happily do all sorts of things to keep your usage in check.
