I tend to tinker under the hood, rather than add chrome or new wheels. So, if you’re totally bored with Mac OS X Lion or Snow Leopard, and you need more to satisfy your inner Picasso or Warhol, then you need the best Mac customization tool this side of a can of RustOleum.
If you can click your mouse while spelling Candy Bar, your Mac can be customized beyond your wildest dreams.
Real Customization Is Not Wallpaper Or Screensaver
Real men don’t doll up their Macs with cute kitten wallpaper or flying toasters in the screen saver.
Real Mac customizing begins with a serious tool called CandyBar.
Anybody can add a photo to a Mac’s desktop wallpaper or create a screensaver from photos of offspring.
CandyBar digs into your Mac’s innards to customize a Mac so it doesn’t look all Mac-like. That means folder icons, Dock icons, even the Trash can.
Change folder icons and Dock icons on the fly. Download iContainer icon sets and start your own collections of icons to fit your current mood.
Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. And, a picture is worth a thousand words.
CandyBar makes it easy to change all icons on your Mac, or specific icons, so the options are nearly infinite (click on either of the images above for a larger, pop-up view).
Ditto for the icons in your Mac’s Dock. Yes, they’re boring, but they don’t have to be.
As a bona fide Mac geek with absolutely no graphic design capability whatsoever, even I can appreciate the eye candy in CandyBar.
The app itself comes with plenty of icons to choose, but others can be downloaded and used just as easily.
It’s not complicated, either. Click one of the four basic change areas; Dock icons, folder icons, volume icons, or system icons.
Drag and drop one by one, or click and have them all replaced by a set.
Will this deeply embedded customization break your Mac? It could, but it never has. CandyBar simply replaces the icons hidden away by Mac OS X. One click brings all the originals back to life.
There’s no easier way to add more customization to your Mac than CandyBar, and the options are endless. This is one custom tool that’s highly recommended for geek and non-geek.
