Is there something out like kaleidoscope in the classic OS days?

You guys are arguing semantics with this whole theme/not theme thing. The bottom line is that it lets you change icons plus some other stuff. So, its not really JUST an icon utility.

I tried it and it works really well. Its better organized then Candybar AND its more flexible. I was able to add apps not installed in the Applications folder and I was able to change MS Office icons - which Candybar cant do.

Sure... if a head is the same thing as a body, then you're right, we're just arguing semantics.

Hmm. Nine bullet points. Twelve mentions of the word "icon." I get it. What I don't get is the product name. Some actual themes out there are going to feel kind of insulted.

New product name suggestion: iconiconiconiconiconiconiconiconiconicon

This is not a theme changer. It is an icon changer, and CandyBar does it better (and faster). Why is it called iThemeOS?

This is an icon changer. What does this have to do with "themes"???

Candybar is MUCH better than this, and costs the same. The only thing it doesn't do is change the boot panel - which there are several other free apps that do this.

I guess if this app didn't have the word "theme" in it, I wouldn't complain. I'm sure it's a nice little app, but there are just so many already out there that do this that it's hard to get excited about this one.

I appreciate your feedback! We are updating our website with exciting themes that you can download which you can then share and change. We have teamed up with great icon artists to allow you to customize your Mac with really cool icon themes. The term theme comes from the fact you can save and import your themes which nicely package your icons into a single file. Visit http://www.planeshiftsw.com as early as this evening to see our new themes. Also, use our handy icon converter to make your own themes and share them with the community.


Oh man dear developer, did you read what MacGizmo wrote? Haha, man, to sum it up:

General convention is:

A theme is not just an icon-package.

An iconpackage is an iconpackage. And a theme is called a theme. A theme is more than just icons.

CandyBar from Panic software does what your software does, better and in a much nicer interface.

Panic Software calls their iconpacks "iContainers" which is a nice, descriptive term.
