IconBox

Version 2.6.6

Customize and organize icons across your Mac.

IconBox overview

Note: this app is still available for download but development for this app has stopped.

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 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. Furthermore Boxes can be arranged in folders and subfolders and you can re-drag Boxes and folders to change their order. We also created "Smart Boxes", like iTunes Smart Playlists, these folders are constantly updated based on given criteria. The search feature has been revamped to search for different criteria and the speed has been improved a lot. Besides organizing, you can export icons to different formats like ICNS, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, GIF, PDF, even the iContainer format and last but not least as a convenient .zip package, ready to share with others.

Mode 2: Customize
Since version 2, IconBox features full icon customization. Users can customize their system icons, dock icons, application icons, volume icons and even their dock in an easy to use drag-and drop way. This means that one can download the well know "iContainers" from different sites all over the web, having them change the look of your system with the click of a single button!

Mode 3: Tools
IconBox also features a "Tools" mode. The purpose of this mode is to host different icon related tools. The first tool available for now is "X-Ray Applications". X-Ray scans your application folder for the apps within and by clicking an app, it shows all the available icons and images within the application package, letting you have a look at them (Even with Preview.app), export them. etc....

Mode 4: Online
The Online mode contains 3 features:

  1. Icon-Of-The-Day: A new icon from a particular icon designer every day, downloadable directly into IconBox, straight into the "Downloaded" Box, ready to share or customize.
  2. Icon Sites: A convenient list of major icon sites on the web, more sites will be added on the go. Double-Clicking a site opens it up in your default Web browser.
  3. IconFinder: Perhaps the most underestimated section in IconBox. It uses the iconfinder.com API which let's you search trough over 155.000 icons and allows you to instantly download them into IconBox by drag 'n drop, conveniently creating all Icon Sizes as needed.

It is dead. It is abandoned. The developer did not have the decency to keep a website where we can download it. Nor did he even announced he had abandoned the app. Sad. I can't rely on it since IconBox ERASED all of the icons I had stored in it. So I don't recommend it for storing your icon collections. Luckily, Candy Bar still works. Yes, you cannot replace system icons since that function can no longer be updated. But for icon storage, organization, and for applying icons to non-system files, it works great. Panic, the company that developed CandyBar, has great software engineers so I expect Candy Bar to work for a while longer, particularly since it is a 64-bit app.

Developer's website no longer appears to exist. Keep being routed to a generic website and cannot locate on worldwide web. Has it been discontinued?

Why is the developer answering questions as if the app is still active and not clarifying the true state of this software? Still getting the daily sucker to pay for it perhaps? An exceptional app. Why the poor attitude?

Is this still under development? Would be grateful if we were told to pull out before losing data. It's just decent etiquette to let us know what's going on.

Thank you,

No development..Did this kind of app die for Mac OS? I don't see any kind of apps in development that are like IconBox (or CandyBar). I used to love this app and used it a lot. I love icons and being able to organize them and sort them into custom categories and easily be able to use them to change an icon or export them for other uses. Anyone find or use another app in place of this one? Also one that works with Yosemite?
