IconBox is a helpful organizational tool for Macs. When the first version of IconBox was released 8 years ago, it was the first Icon Organizer running on Mac OS X, allowing users to conveniently organize their collection of icons in an iPhoto-like way. With version 2.5, IconBox has been completely rewritten and features a brand new interface.

IconBox is one App featuring 4 modes!

Mode 1: Organize

We have the same convenient organization features with a couple of additions. The libraries are now called "Boxes". Drag icons from the finder into a box, create as many boxes as you like. more...

What's New

Version 2.6.0:
  • Support for OS X 10.9 Mavericks.
  • Additional support for OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.
  • New iconfinder.com API implementation.
  • Minor bugfixes and improvements.

Requirements

  • OS X 10.7 or later

Helper app installation (to enable changing icons of Mac App Store purchases) is broken in the app preferences, and the only way I could get it working was to download a separate installer from the website. Not a good start.

Unfortunately, I'm also entirely unable to license the app! No matter what information I enter (following instructions elsewhere on MacUpdate including registered email, purchase email, or full name) my valid license is refused. I emailed support 6 days ago and still haven't heard back. No resolution.

I have the same problem and support does not respond. How did you do?

Have you tried using your email address instead of your name? I'd originally used my payment email (via paypal), but it was a different address that I'd registered with when signing up for an app bundle. Confusing. :(

Developer site returns page not found on download link. The main site loads blank. An app you can't even get is pretty useless.

Works great for adding missing icons for WINE apps or X Window applications on my mac.

I am pleased overall with this app.

Tech support reached me within one business day regarding a Licence Key Issue. (btw if your macbundle Licence key doesn't work enter your email as your name.) Other people prolly know that trick but this was my first macbundle purchase and I'm mostly pleased.

Cons: Hangs when accessing folders with a huge amount of icons.

Doesn't work in Mavericks, it won't even install the icon helper tool so I can't really do anything with it. Until these issues are addressed I think it is misleading to say it works with mavericks.

Was happy to see this app was updated, because CandyBar is abandoned. However: this only works half. I have logged out several times, relaunched finder and dock and there are still icons that simply won't change. It says it's compatible with Mavericks, but I guess not? Such a shame because I've used both this app and CandyBar so much in the past and really need it, still. Hope things will get fixed otherwise I'll have to restore to the painful manual changes...

Also, after using Iconbox to change some systemicons, I now get this error when I insert a CD: "The system extension “/System/Library/Extensions/IOStorageFamily.kext” was installed improperly and cannot be used. Please try reinstalling it, or contact the product’s vendor for an update." which results in me not being able to see/open te cd since it won't show on the desktop or any app. Not good! (I have not tested this with dvd's or usb drives, but might be the same issue)

It turns out USB drives are not recognised either anymore, due to this. IconBox basically ruined my Mac and this is NOT acceptable. Turns out the Mavericks update is basically still in Beta testing and this should have been mentioned. Be warned: using IconBox under Mavericks will mess with your system up to the point you won't be able to use USB drives and/or CD's/DVD's anymore, because 'IOStorageFamily.kext' is being edited and displaying errors. I can't even manually open my TimeMachine sparsebundle anymore for the same reasons. Hope to hear from the developer about this.

Still replying to my own review. Anyway, UPDATE: repairing permissions seems to solve the issue concerning system icons. I still think this should be mentioned somewhere since it took an entire system install for me to discover where the problem came from. Not needed.

Hi, what exactly doesn't work?

When I attempt to swap an icon out for sets I have in my library, they don't load, the program asks me to logout, but when I log back in, the icons don't change into the new ones I've assigned. The dock section is also non functional as well..

Please advise.

I was able to import all my Candybar and iCOntainers and folders of .icns but not any icons in png's (have loads of those..). Also I wish it'd import .svg icons.. I actually "only" need this tool as a place/hub to keep my web design icons, not to toy around customizing the OS appearance (which I could not care less about).

SO I'm not yet impressed.. I was hoping this would be much better.. I can just hope this evolves into this direction.

Hi,

png's shouldn't be any problem. Do you get an error message when importing png's?

Current Issues:

1. IconBox Helper Tool - I was unable to properly install this from the application preferences; It would prompt for my admin password, but never install. I was able to download the standalone helper from the website, which did install.

2. Changing Volume Icons and Home Folder Icons - I found some icons, copied them to their desired locations, clicked the checkmark, logged out via the prompt, then when I logged back in, nothing changed for the Home Folder or Macintosh HD volume. Restarting also failed to apply the icons. I was able to manually change them with the same icons following http://support.apple.com/kb/ht2493 .

3. Online Icon Finder - Every time I use the search tool, I'm able to find tons of great icons, that when I drag to the download box, downloads a blank file.
