iconStiX (V2.2) is a great big pleasant surprise. It seems like everything I attempt to do—works …and works well.

It's easy to use, not hard to figure out, (although a few features aren't as intuitive as they might be) and has plenty of output options.

I've tried several similar apps but I'm gonna stick with this one. Easily worth $8.99 any day.

For many years, I've been using Viou for creating my folder icons. Viou did, what I wanted, but I didn't like it because its user interface was complicated and barely intuitional. iconStiX does everything Viou did, but in a more convenient way. Furthermore, iconStiX supports the large icons in MacOS X Snow Leopard (512px x 512px), and you can label your folders with your own text. iconStiX is great, and I recommend it to everyone.

This is a heaven sent. I used to use the program Viou for creating custom folder icons, but it ceased to properly function in 10.6, and even after many e-mails to the author, he has not really done anything to fix it.

IconStiX is clean, loaded with features, and best of all, 64 bit native. More people deserve to find this program and use it.
