Iconfactory CandyBar 2.0
The Iconfactory today released , an update to the company's Mac OS X utility for customizing system level icons. It adds the ability to customize the icons of installed applications as well as their associated toolbar and document icons, quick customization of volumes, an expanded selection of System icons, auto-updating, and more. CandyBar's new "Applications" panel allows users to drag in replacements from the Finder or from Pixadex to quickly view/change the application icons as well as the application's icon contents -- including toolbar icons and document icons. It can also safely and quickly revert back to the normal state. CandyBar ($13) also ships with four new iContainers, allowing users to update their applications and system icons to either Corey Marion's popular Smoothicon series or David Lanham's recently released Somatic style. Upgrades are $7.
