Great little app.

Even better now you don't have to quit and relaunch between covers.

This application is a gem, with one serious flaw in this V1. It only exports to ICNS (again for the 1.0 version). Even on OS X (where ICNS is often used) this is next to useless considering what the purpose of this app is for.

The format for changing folder icon is ICON, and this app so far does not support that. There itself the time saving factor is completely lost, as dragging the newly done ICNS icon into Candybar, and then exporting to ICON from there, takes the same time as opening a cover image in Photoshop and using Dustin's (the talented designer who did the original case templates) templates and scripts to spit out the final ICON file within IconBuilder.

Without a doubt, this app has huge potential, and is indeed a little gem, but it would have been more wise to start with the ICON format (and then perhaps expand to other formats in subsequent versions) than to start with ICNS, especially as this is the only format it supports.

Once this application supports ICON format, its an automatic 5 stars, hands down. Until then, I find it hard to see the value beyond 3 stars.

Actually, SlipCover does support the "Icon" format via drag and drop. I believe I already explained this to you on my blog, but you can drag to apply on the preview window. So, not "useless" as you said.

Ahh, you are indeed correct. Looks like you do this through dragging the finder icon of the folder preview into the well for it to apply the ICON format. Never knew this was the way to do it. Well, its a 5 star app now. :). Though a pref menu to support more formats for dragging out of the well would also be helpful.
