Learn how MacUpdate Desktop makes installing apps from one-click easy.
Next time, install SideEffects with 1-click

Learn how MacUpdate Desktop can install apps on MacUpdate with the simple click of the Install apps with MacUpdate Desktop icon. Plus, keep all your apps updated.

Note: 8 July 2015 - It appears Mac OS X updates are breaking the functionality of the components used by SideEffects. Since the components are no longer actively being developed, this may be a good time to bite the grey icon bullet and say goodbye. SideEffects is strictly own risk or disappointment from now on.

SideEffects puts color back in the OS X 10.7, 10.8, and 10.9 Finder sidebar. Combines the work of several developers in an all-in-one installer. Installs SIMBL, ColorfulSidebar and PowerboxInjector.

What's New

Version 1.9:
  • OS X 10.9 Mavericks compatibility added thanks to an update from CooViewerZoom
