Ordinary folders in the Mac OS X Finder are always displayed with the same boring old blue folder icon.
Sometimes you might want to liven this up. Perhaps you browse a music or photo collection through the Finder. Maybe you create artwork, or own a collection of home movie DVD files.
Whatever things you have, one thing is for sure — the standard blue folder icon doesn't give you many clues about the folder's contents.
This is where Add Folder Icons comes in. It uses any pictures found inside a given folder to create a customised icon based on a configurable icon style.
Add Folder Icons provides a set of built-in icon styles but you can also create your own.
NOTE: To buy Add Folder Icons via the App Store an Apple account is required.
Here are some key features of "Add Folder Icons":
· SlipCover integration - Now you can use SlipCover cases for icons as well as customising Add Folder Icon's own icon generation parameters. Many thanks to the SlipCover author for contributing the code to make this possible!
· Basics, like integration with system preferences, tabbed preferences panes, modal sheets and so-on; all aspects of general Mac OS X GUI development with XCode
· Extensive use of Cocoa bindings
· CoreData for icon style storage
· Full application localisation
· Multiple threads and worker tasks within modal run loops
· Inter-thread communication with NSConnection
· The application help mechanism and its specific implementation under Snow Leopard
· Extended use of blocks and concurrency in enumeration loops and the like, with Grand Central Dispatch continuing to underpin the command-line tool behind the scenes.
· 64-bit processor
