Icosystem allows you to apply the same color to an item icon as you select a color label for it.

As you know, the Mac OS X Finder doesn't color the icon, but only it's name. Now, folders, files and apps can be easily and beautifully tagged with colors! You just have to use the Finder Get Info command or the Finder contextual menu on an item! Just as usual!

You can also press a key combination to tag your files with live colors!

It's also possible to just apply a color to the item icon, and skip its label name.

Hi, I just downloaded the demo of the new version 2.1 and it works with System Leopard version 10.5.6.

The description above reads, "It's also possible to just apply a color to the item icon, and skip its label name."

How do you skip the label name and color just the icon?

If this is possible, then we may just have a replacement for Labels X.

Thanks much!

I confirm, too, that the download link gets only v2.1.
Clicking on the link to the developer brings up a login window for some reason.

You should bring this to the attention of the developer at the developer's site. The developer submitted this update to MU as being 2.1.1. The developer is the only person who can rectify or explain the issue.

I liked this with Tiger so I paid for it, but it has issues with Leopard. The last couple of updates are bogus as they are the same version (2.1) and create date (Nov 2007). I went to the site and it shows an even older version of 1.8. So, if you're running Tiger I recommend this, but if you're running Leopard I would stay away until the author gets their act together.

It was submitted as being version 2.1.1 and was posted as such at first, but a subsequent check of the downloaded file using the 'Get Info' command reveals it to be version 2.1. Sorry for any confusion. Hopefully the developer will clear this up.

I must be missing something, why would I spend $8.00 and waste 5.8Mb of space just to do something that the OS already does quite well?

You're not right: the OS does not do what Icosystem does.

- It doesn't color icons, just icon names
- It won't display animations
- It won't apply color to just icons (and not to the icon name)
- many other things, you're missing.

Icosystem does do all the previous actions!

Have you really tried Icosystem? It's worth $8!!

Plus, Labels X, even though I very much like the people and the effort at Unsanity, will probably never work on Leopard because the APE situation looks untenable. Also, from what i can see, this app isn't a hack and finally, OS X's native label colors suck.

The older versions had nicer folder icons. The newer version added some different shading/coloring to folders. Absolutely horrible! Over saturation of colors and ugly right translucent edges.. again especially on the folders. There should be a way of reverting back the previous versions icons style or having both available. Perhaps the older versions just works better on my powerbook? Anyone else notice this in the newer versions? Also, the icons to do not retain their color in the Finder sidebars. That would be a nice fix! Other than that, it seems to be a nice/cute little app which I can see some useful purposes for.

With version 1.4 you can choose between the "old color style" and the new one.

I am wondering if this will hijack the label colors throughout the system like Labels X did when I demoed it. The screenshots seem to have weird tints to all the colors.

I am sure you can choose your own, but I like to stay with the OS X colors.

Also wondering if the colors will show up in the Sidebar and in list/column view.

Hey Folders was cool, but I think it was chewing up resources on my G4, and of course isn't Universal either.

It may not be a bad little toy, but the Apple label colors are already not the best color to start off with and now mixing with this little playful thing, that makes the colors even more terrible.

That's my 2 cents.

Of course, some like it hot and some like it cold!

I downloaded the program , and it works - but I cannot find where to regester the program, or contact anyone for help! Even the home page for Pammac.net and Icosystem is no help with no one of contacting anyone from the company... Now I want to disable it and remove it from my operating system and I can't get rid of it. Someone help!

The program can be registered by selecting "Register" form the Icosystem menu.

There you'll be offered to go to Kagi Store an securely purchase a license for just $8.

The license code is just as clean and easy as three random words you'll have to re-enter into the "Enter Code" registration field. Press Enter and your done!

It's all in the Icosystem menu!

Hey Folders! just runs on PowerPC Macs with Mac OS 10.3... It has no Intel support and no Tiger support... You have to relaunch Finder each time having you wasting time.

Icosystem is clean, Universal and runs on Tiger. Moreover it displays animations and sounds, comes with free automated updates and rocks!

It's even cheaper than Labels X!
