Outside of arranging app icons in the Dock (or, moving the Dock from the bottom to a side), and changing the Desktop wallpaper, Apple doesn’t give Mac users many options for true visual customization. How can you personalize your Mac to match your personality?
CandyBar, that venerable, ubercustomizing app for Mac is now a free app. But CandyBar gives you extreme options that anyone can use on their Macs.
For a totally customized, personalized look, simply change the Mac’s folders. Apple loves that understated, elegant look, hence the Mac has a gazillion blue folders that look the same on everyone else’s Mac.
Add Folders Factory to your Mac and customize your folders in dozens of ways. It’s all point and click.
Folders Factory tools are simple. The floating palette inspector gives you tools for Images, Stamp, Text, and Texture.
Drop in an image and move it around to position it appropriately on a folder. Then add text, change texture, or even emboss an image.
You get complete control over each aspect of the folder’s look. Color, texture, text, image. If you like the standard Mac look of embossed logo on a folder, you’ll like what Folders Factory can do, but in your color choice and icon.
All this customization capability comes at a price. Chances are good you’ll spend more money on a trip to Starbucks than you would on Folders Factory.
