    How do I see the sizes of each Application in my ~/Applications folder?

    When I go to List view, the sizes don't show. (it shows --)

    Go to the applications folder, and click on the gear icon in the top of the finder window, and select Show View Options. In the window that pops up, click the "Calculate All Sizes" option at the very bottom. The -- will be replaced by application sizes. :)

    There's an app called WhatSize which will show you the size of every file on your mac.

    Open up a terminal and type:

    cd /Applications
    du -h -d1

    There's always my method too. My method is Ctrl-click on each Application folder and click on "get info". This will tell you its size as well. However... it's the worst method here.:D
