MovieIcon is the easiest way to get a spectacular view of your movie collection. Just drag video files into this simple app to make it search its titles in the Internet and change its bored file icons by actual movies cover art. Your video collection will look awesome now, making more pleasing, easy and fast to find out any file. MovieIcon brings the eye candy of a Media Center together with Finder simplicity. Don't miss the spectacular icon coverflow view! You can even embed art to compatible movies so it can be shown when added to iTunes / AppleTV (Lion and later only).

The app uses IMDb and TMDb databases to automatically hunt down all of the available posters for your titles, whether they’re movies or TV shows.

Occasionally, there isn’t a poster to be found for a movie or television show. That can happen for rare titles. Nevermind. Just use one of the provided generic pieces of artwork, or drag your own custom cover from a web browser or Finder. This is also the perfect solution for personal videos that you’ve created yourself.

The easiest way to check MovieIcon power and simplicity is seeing in action. Please, visit to find screenshots and videos.

Don’t bother

Used to be a good little app. Now it’s only good for adding images that you have searched and downloaded manually. Fails to find even the most popular movies any more - what happened??

Heres the Fix you need to do to make it work right.

Right now there is a bug or issue with what ever cloud system that this app is using. It only searches on the First Word in the Title. So If the Title is “The Wizard of OZ” you get a lot of random titles that start with “The”.. To fix this you need to replace the spaces in your movile title with * then hit enter. Note you have to use the mouse and avoid using the arrow keys to do thsi as it will try to search when you use the arrows. Maybe the developer should do a find and replace on the text and then the back end would work...

Something changed for the worse

This app used to be so great and could find so many great posters for any movie, but now it no longer is able to find a poster for extremely popular movies like the Godfather. Something must have changed during the recent update and if it were fixed so many of us would be pleased and I would change my writing to five stars
