Shift is suppose to create a unique and easy way to customize your Mac OS by being suited with a complete set of tools to redesign the look of your computer. So far Shift can change any file, app, directory's icon as well as change the generic icon files. Shift can also change your boot logo and manage all your icons in an easy-to-use library with a built-in web downloader. Our current status on the application is still in release candidate production. There will be some bugs and such, which is why we would like you all to report any bugs to kevin@uhelios.com or tweet me @uhelios. Please take note of all this before more...

This is probably some extremely bright young hacker, and I wish I could be gentle. But using this thing on a Mac at all, let alone using a beta version, seems sorta like lighting a match to see if you have any gas left in your tank.

Version 1.0RC10

Just curious and not snarky: Did you download and try it or is this a general caution statement?

Dana Sutton

Genenal caution statement. I. m. h. o. anybody foolish enough to install and try out this beta will in all probability wind up in the proverbial world of pain.


@Dana_Sutton: Thanks for the reply. I really wish that MU had a "beta only" section where those brave enough to subject their systems to hacks could find such goodies and the rest of us can cruise along with the regular updates to shipping products here.


Dana & Prince Isacc, your comments are right on target in regard to be cautious and the use of betaware. Nonetheless, I did download this software, but am using it on an old laptop I only use for testing. There are some definite bugs and quirks the developer needs to address, but it's got potential--especially since Candybar is no longer being developed. I'll be curious to see where this app goes over time. Anyone planning to download and try this app shouldn't be using it on their "I can't afford a malfunctioning computer."
