-- Create Beautiful Custom Folders on your Mac --

Folder Designer is the coolest and easiest way to customize Folders on your Mac. We’ve made this app perfectly simple to use so that anyone can give their Folders a totally unique appearance.

• Customize your Mac’s folders with a unique new icon or pattern
• Choose from a large selection of pre-installed icon images within the app
• Ability to add any image/pattern of your choice to a Folder
• Ability to edit the icon/pattern scale to allow a perfect fit according to your tastes
• Auto center/auto fit an icon or pattern
• Ability to position the icon using the mouse to exactly where you want
• Change the background colour to one of your choice

• Instantly create Folders on your Mac that are entirely unique in appearance
• Have Folders that feature either a unique icon, pattern or even a different background colour than the regular blue shade
• Folders can be easily distinguishable and identifiable on your Mac directly by appearance
• An extremely easy app to use offering infinite customization possibilities
• Regular free updates

We've worked hard to make Folder Designer as simple and efficient as possible for you to use. We would love to hear your thoughts via email and make any improvements to future versions of this app. We intend to have an active development cycle powered by your feedback, love and support!

Quick and easy, sometimes glitchy!

I really enjoyed the straightforward shortcut to personalize your desktop even further. The large color selection is amazing, allowing you to personalize each folder to coordinate with your desktop. The only reason I gave four stars and not five is because on occasion the folders don’t change color immediately and you have to apply the color a few times before it shows, however this app is truly a life saver and worth the small payment if you are dedicated to making your desktop unique and aesthetic.

Won't open

I was able to create one folder, then I tried creating a color with the pencil part of the app, and boom. The app crashed and will not reload. I tried deleting the app and reinstalling, force quitting, etc, all to no avail. Very disappointed.
