Sent the developer an e-mail requesting an update; I really like this program....hopefully an update is on the way. Though, if anyone else thinks this program is substandard and thinks they can do better show me:)
There's so many things wrong with this program compared to the former reigning champ, Candybar. There's no place to store your icons (you have to keep them all on your hard drive), you can't import folders or application icons all at one (you have to do it manually). It's free because it's junk.
I hope that this is updated for both Mavericks 10.9.4 and Yosemite...very helpful program.
Having used LIteicon more, I have to say it has some shortcomings. 1.) Its Application range only "sees" applications stored in MacOS>Applications, not those stored in User>Home>Applications. 2.) It fails to "see" applications (such as the individual ones in the MS Office suite) which are stored within folders in MacOS>Applications. 3.) It doesn't have a way of customizing generic special-purpose icons such as webloc ones, Web Clipping, and all the rest. So it's limited and not a full replacement for Candy Bar. Let's hope that it author continues to develop it and make it a full-service substitute.
Yep, the folder issue is especially frustrating; all Adobe products are installed within folders, for example, and without an option to manually select an application there's simply no way to access them. I had to use a different program entirely (which is, based on my experience last week, broken, unsupported, and still $15!).The lack of an icon library in LiteIcon is also rather limiting, as there's no easy way to apply sets of icons, just one at a time from a folder in Finder.But...LiteIcon is also free. And, within limitations, it works. Which is a lot more than can be said of the competition in OSX Mavericks. :D So thank you to the developer! I do hope development continues, it's awesome to have options. :)
LiteIcon already updated to 3.0.2--great program!
After upgrading to Mavericks 10.9.1 LiteIcon states system is not supported? Is an update imminent?
We appear to have a winner here. This makes up for the loss of Candybar and appears to do work just as advertised. Thanks, developer! Now if only somebody would come up with a similar utility to de-uglify the Mavericks Dock!
De-uglify? Hm... why is it so, so ugly as compared to the preceding Docks? Can you justify?
Well, Cattus, a lot of people would like to have a transparent Dock and to control whether the Dock is 2-D or 3_D. And in saying this I'm not an isolated crank. Read http://arstechnica.com/apple/2013/11/five-complaints-ars-readers-have-about-os-x-mavericks/
I see. Well, yes, this may be a point, but there are some other points here to talk about.
Wow....Thank you.... Thank you very much to the developer of LiteIcon (FreeMacSoft); able to change the Finder icon and Dashboard icon effortlessly in Mavericks. Had used the earlier version to change many of the the other Maverick icons and finally was able to change Finder and Dashboard.
Yay. Now that CandyBar is DEAD, it is nice that someone is working on a utility to customize system icons. I am waiting for the official release version before I use it.
When I use this client to change my Finder Icon, the Icon is Low Rez. Is there something I'm doing wrong?
Which kind of icon are you using as replacement?
Hiya:I'm using this (and a few others). The Low Rez look seems to only affect the Finder Icon.http://iconfactory.com/freeware/preview/fren
