Please fix for Yosemite

This program worked great through all the Yosemite Beta’s, but now it doesn’t with the final version of Yosemite :( Please fix.

Updated Review! Went From “Meh” to “AWESOME!"

When I first bought the app, I had several issues and went to another app available on the App Store. It was marginally better, but couldn’t match the ease-of-use of folderol. I tried folderol again, after a clean install, but was still having issues. I took a chance and emailed the developer.

Imagine my surprise and delight when she emailed back within half an hour! She asked me some questions and after a few email exchanges, she sent a workaround while she did some things on her end. The VERY NEXT DAY, she emailed me a beta version that fixed all my isssues and generally increased the awesomeness of this app by 100%. Sleek and easy to use, it did just what I wanted with no fuss and no flaws.

I couldn’t be happier with this app and this developer. Thank you! Completely worth the four dollars!

Original Review Follows:

I can’t get customer images to apply at all anymore. The tinting issues are still happening for me, unfortunately, and I find it oddly difficult to remove any applied modifications and return the image to stock.

I’ll look elsewhere for a solution.

Love the app, but

This app is great for quickly customizing folders to stand out on my desktop, but since Maverick, there have been some issues. Custom colors selected from the palette no longer work, and changes don't stick. If I want to tweak the icon after making initial changes, I need to create a new folder, make the change to the new folder, move the contents from the original folder to the new folder, then move the contents back. This is obviously not optimal, and the dev acknowledged on her blog that things had changed under the hood in Mac OS that affected her app's performance. I work around it, but you should be warned before you buy.
