Create exquisite and unique folders for your computer with hundreds of pre-created images.

Custom folders are a simplistic, but powerful way to increase your productivity. At some stage, everybody has had a desktop which seems to be bursting at the seams. Finding folders in this sea of files can be a challenge, because they all look exactly the same. Using custom folders (which can be animals, flags, smilies etc), you will be able to find folders at a glance. 

You can even create your own stunning folders from scratch with simplicity and ease. The Creator uses PDF technologies to deliver a responsive and powerful interface which is enjoyable to use. We took our original concept ("You do not need to be an artist to be able to create beautiful folders.") and created an interface which suits both artists and casual users alike.

We received many requests from people who wanted to be able to change the icons of existing folders. We have added this option in an easy and accessible way. Simply select the folders in Finder and click on the desired folder in Folder Magic.

Archived folders emailed to friends will still retain the icon generated by Folder Magic. Instead of sending your friends plain folders, send them stunning ones.

Note: In-App purchases only work in Mountain Lion. Lion support will be added in the next update.

The Samuco team reads App Store reviews very carefully to ensure any issues with the program are solved. If you are having trouble with the software please send us an email and we will do our best to resolve it.


Release Notes:

- Fixed white background bug in Creator
- Fixed liquify

Fantastic Organizer - My desktop always looks like such a mess and I could never find anything until now. The color coding does wonders for my overloaded ideas, half baked projects, and also the superstars! THANK you for a system that really helps (and never crashes!)

Wow…….. - All those icons on the Menu bar you see on the Screenshots above are only unlocked by paying $0.99 each. How pathetic. Don't even bother downloading it unless you like the whole Rainbow folders thing in which you can easily change the look of your Mac OS X folders. NOTE: you have to pay to personalize your folders…. This app is sketchy and I wouldn't recommend it to an old Mac User but if you are really new and want to get a feel of customizing your mac, then download it

In App Purchases Will Not Download - The free portion of Folder Magic works pretty well. However, purchased the in-app Flags extension and it has never downloaded. Everything goes smoothly through the iTunes purchase part and then nothing downloads. The circle just spins and spins. Can’t cancel out of the app. Have to execute a Force Quit through the Activity Monitor. Have emailed the developers using the Contact Us link and no response. Tried the Restore Purchases link. Guess what? Same thing happens - the download is caught in a never-ending loop. Bottom line: Use the Free version, but do not try the In-App purchases.

Review by Ariscoli

Doesn’t Work - Downloaded free app and purchased in-app tool, Creator. However, the only thing I can do with this app is choose to overlay one of my own previous folders. In Creator I can find images that I want (from from my own files) but “Text Box” does not work and in Creations when I try to create a file, it saves something I did not d??? Downloaded from Apple Store purchases onto my 2nd computer…tells me I can buy in-app Creator for $1.99…I already had purchased, originally. I’d give this app another chance, if I could find a guide as to “how to use” and it actually worked. Also, the name on here as who from isn’t correct either.

Review by Rinikin

Helpful - I have organised folders on my desktop into groups according to color, and findihg what I want without resorting to Search has become far easier. I am tempted to invest in the more interesting patterned folder styles, but for now the few that I have really stand out and the colors make me feel super organized. A very useful tool!
