Great for Genealogy folders organization!

Elena has done an excellent job with this app! I use a color-coded system to organize my paper genealogy research by family lines. Now I can do it with my folders on the computer too! Would love to see some genealogy-inspired icons available…such as different types of trees, family groups, etc. However, I was able to use a tree icon I found online elsewhere. It just would be easier to use one from the app. This app has a lot more to it than I’ve used. Highly recommend!

ARTISTS! Drop your image into the app window and have at it!

ARTISTS - give this app a try! This is such a fantastic app and so incredibly easy to use, but some people do NOT engage in drag and drop enough to understand the simplicity of the Macintosh.

When you launch the app a window full of colorful folders appears and if you just want to work with color, you just pick a color of your choice and you drag any folder onto that colored folder and POOF! your folder changes to the color and style of the folder. If you want to change the folder back to the way it was, there is a folder in the app window labeled "RESTORE," and you just drag your Finder folder there to revert it back to a regular boring folder.

In the same way if you drag an image onto any of the app folders, the folder you choose just ABSORBS the image and THEN you simply drag a desktop folder to the same place and POOF! the folder becomes blessed with your image choice…

Drag and Drop your way to happiness with this awesome app!

Might be a good app. Impossible to tell.

This appears to be somewhat useful. But without adequate instructions or a users manual, it is a waste of time and money. The developer has a bunch of fancy videos that consist of really fast selections, drags, cuts, pastes. You really can’t determine what the video is trying to teach because they move so fast. It’s like watching a card trick. I have no problem learning how to use most apps without a manual because they are intuitive. This one is not. For me this would be a zero star app because I can’t use it. I’ll give it one star because at the very least it did not freeze or blow up.

This is a complete waste of money unless you know someone that knows how to use it.
