What is it about a Mac app that catches your eye and makes you want to try? Sometimes it’s a catchy name. Other times an intriguing headline on a review. Once in awhile it’s the app’s icon.
Iconator caught my eye because of the flashy icon and the value proposition built-in to the name. Iconator reeks of an app that makes icons.
But it doesn’t.
What Iconator does is created icons on your Mac’s folders. Most Mac folders are the faceless light blue. A few, Documents, Downloads, Library, Applications, have embossed icons in that typical understated Apple way.
Iconator can end the tasteful way Apple creates folders, and give you more control. How it works is drag and drop dead simple.
Step One: Grab a folder you want to change and drop it onto Iconator (the Drag Folder section). Click the icon you want to use. Click the Apply button.
Easy so far, right?
Step Two: There is no step two. Iconator changes the folder by inserting the selected icon into the folder.
While there are over 100 icons from which to choose, that’s just not enough. But it’s better than the selection Apple gives Mac users.
Add an icon to 199 folders on your Mac and the per icon cost drops to a penny each.
