The Iconfactory headed into the weekend on Friday with the release of CandyBar 1.6.3. This upgrade to their popular system icon customization tool qualifies the software for Mac OS X v.10.3.3, which is the next OS X update planned by Apple, and fixes a bug that prevented the Restore Default Icons option from appearing on unqualified system versions. Version 1.6.3 also adds drag and drop support for the upcoming release of Pixadex 1.5, which allows you to store, sort, and search on all your custom system icons.
CandyBar allows you to customize all the icons on your Mac, including the ones in your toolbar, on your folders, and elsewhere. You can even swap out Mac OS X’s default trash can for something more interesting. It features a drag and drop interface that allows you to quickly and easily make changes, with the ability to instantly revert to your default icons. The tool’s iContainers feature makes changing entire sets of System icons as easy as clicking your mouse once; you can even export your current CandyBar icons as an iContainer and send it to a friend.
CandyBar 1.6.3 is a free upgrade for registered users. You can download the software and use it for free for 15 days or 25 uses of the Apply button, whichever comes first. It comes with four icon sets — two system replacements and two toolbar replacements — to get you started, and you can download new ones as iContainers.
