Labels X

3.0.1
28 April 2010

Brings back Classic label colors to OS X.

Overview

Labels X is a haxie that enhances the file and folder labeling features in Mac OS X. It can:
  • Apply tints to file and folder icons;
  • Sort the files and folders by label;
  • Apply tints to file and folder names;
  • Customize the label colors and names;
  • Share label information with Mac OS 9

What's new in Labels X

Version 3.0.1:
  • Fixed a bug that caused LX to save the new registration numbers to the wrong file which made LX act unregistered.
  • Now requires Mac OS X 10.6.x.
  • You may have to restart after installing LX for the first time.
  • Updated to support Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard v10.6.x
  • Now supports only Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard v10.6.x
  • Adds support for 64-bit processes (x86_64 only, ppc64 is not supported)
  • Requires Rosetta. If Rosetta is not installed, Mac OS X 10.6.x will offer to install the 4MB Rosetta package during install.
  • Reordered labels in the preference pane to match Finder ordering since that order seems preferred over the correct order (0-7).
  • Some little itsy-bitsy fixes.
  • Tweaked the way icons are colorized so labels are more uniform for different views (list, icon)
  • \"Draw Labeled Stripes\" option is off by default.
  • Almost 3 years later its previous update, Labels X returns.
  • Only Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard is supported.
  • Clang/LLVM\'s excellent static analyzer helped us to find and fix some bugs that would only show up during a red moon. Go Clang!

Labels X is one of the top 10 most important applications for the Mac. Hi Profinite, Your message is 7 months old, System Leopard is over a year and a half old, the messages at the URL you cited are a year old. How responsive is this? Will there be a System Leopard compatible version of Labels X? Yes?___ (if so, when?) No?___ Maybe?___ Is there a plan to upgrade Labels X to System Leopard compatibility? If so, what is the plan? If the coding is difficult, then why aren't Apple programmers helping out in accordance with the provisions of the Apple Developer Connection? Helllllooooo? Anyone home?

Is anyone running the current version of Labels X on OS X 10.6.7? I googled, but couldn't find anything recent (from 2010-2011) regarding users' experiences, just old stuff from the Tiger days. In hope someone from the macupdate community could give his/her impressions... ;-)

Now that Lion has been released, I guess my question is irrelevant. The developers never responded to my email regarding the subject. I chose not to install.

Readers should be aware that with the move to have 3 work with Snow Leopard, there is now NO version of Labels X that will work with OS X 10.5.x. Having paid the developer for the app, this seems to me to be fairly shabby business practice.

I started using LabelsX when it first became available in the early days of OS X. I used to organize my workflow using folder labels in prior Mac OS's. In my view LabelsX corrects a real oversight on the part of Apple's design department: The stock colors and their application to only the file/folder names and not the icons are awkward-one of the very few areas where Apple goofed up on design (or at least where I disagree strongly). The new LabelsX 3.0.1 seems to be stable and unobtrusive from a CPU and memory overhead standpoint. Well done and welcome back!

For those who believe that Unsanity does not respond to inquiries, I suggest that you read the announcement in the yellow box at the top of their blog page that has existed for months now: http://www.unsanity.org/archives/betas/enthusiastic_trepidation.php I own FontCard, FruitMenu, Menu Master, and WindowShade. All of their betas have worked well with Leopard on multiple Mac's.

Labels X makes labels the way they are supposed to be. The only downside to my MBP was that Labels X did not work with the Intel processor. This upgrade is allmost like a Christmas gift. My file labels look graceful again, the way they are supposed to look. Looks nice and stable on my machine as well!

So what, Tiger doesn't have lables ? Panther did. What happened ? I think I'd rather have labels than widgets.

Yes Tiger does have labels. This app is for people with 10.2x... And yeah I would love to know how many items a folder contains as opposed to just the size. I'm sure OS9 used to do it.
