definingDesign, a developer of high-quality Mac OS X software, is announcing the release of IconIt, a new version of the popular icon tool built specifically for OS X 10.2 Jaguar. The original version of IconIt (1.0) is still available for OS X 10.1 users. (See 'Related Links', below) If you like to have a lot of cool icons on your files and folders, IconIt will save you hours of copying and pasting icons from one file to another.
It works like this:
- 1. Select the file whose icon you want to change.
- 2. Pull down the icon menu (which is always available in the main menu bar).
- 3. Select the icon you want from a neatly arranged list of icons.
- 4. That's it! The icon you selected is applied to your file (or files, if you selected more than one).
IconIt takes the hassle out of assigning new icons to files and folders in Mac OS X. IconIt puts a convenient menu of all your icons in the toolbar of the Finder. Just select the file or folder you want to change, choose your new icon from the menu, and you're done!
Joe Lester, the lead developer of IconIt, says that people who love icons will love IconIt. "I really haven't been able to find anything else like it, especially for OS X. Once you experience how easy it is to apply icons to your system this way, you won't want to go back to the 'old days' of opening up Info windows and all that tedious copying and pasting. IconIt makes it simple." I would love to hear your feedback.
