Well worth the low price if...

... like me you care not only to have organization in your computer or device managment but a visual representation that not only looks great but actually saves time when searching quite often and it gives one a chance to explore the creative person that resides inside us all.

Good but not without problems.

You can create great icons in many sizes and formats. However there are problems whenapplying the icons to Drives, be they SSD, Thumb etc. Generally you have to copy and paste them into postion. The problem with that aside from being time consuming and not what the app promises, there is a large border around many of the icons that protude fro the Drive. That is very unattracive.

Developer Response ,

Hi, sorry for the border problem, any chance you can contact us at and share some screenshot of this glitch? We'll be glad to work on a solution.

Can we be able to move around the image on folders, sd card and other simlar icons. And maybe even an option to choose custom colors for icons like folders.

Developer Response ,

It's possible to move the artwork inside the icon template and change the folder colors. For reference check the videos on image2icon website:
