CandyBar for Mac

CNET Editors' review

CandyBar allows users to customize almost any icon or folder on their Mac from a single interface, and while the setup can be a bit confusing, the range and utility of the tools here are fantastic. Whether you want to change the default folders on your Mac or swap around some of the icons being used in the dock of your machine, this app will give you unprecedented control over how your desktop looks and feels.

Installation of CandyBar is fast and the app will load independently each time, requiring you to create a shortcut for your desktop or your dock. The interface offers numerous options, as well, and none are clearly labeled so it will take a bit of time to determine how best to organize and lay out the features you have. Once you do, however, the interface is very intuitive, providing everything you need to drag and drop icons into the well, change them, and save them to the system settings in just a few, quick clicks. With preloaded icons to choose from, easy-to-use updating tools to find more, and a swap in and out process that takes only seconds (with a very useful restore tool if you ever want to go back to the way things were), this is a powerful icon-customization app.

If you are tired of the same old Apple look on your desktop or laptop, consider checking out CandyBar. The app comes as a free trial with a $29 upgrade fee after the trial period expires. You can test all of the features in that time, however, and customize quite a bit of how your machine looks, making it well worth the download and test.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of CandyBar for Mac 3.3.4.
