Very Capable Folder Designer - This app is the best I’ve seen in the Mac App Store for designing and making folders. You can use the folders provided or use any image that you have created or find for free from various websites. The editing options are vast, the interface is easy to use, and there are many options to totally customize your folders. This app os so great that folder designers are limited only by their own create skills.

Review by Wintershire

Hard to figure out. - Let me preface this by saying this app works as advertised on my macOS Sierra version 10.12.2. I have created different color folders, folders with text, folders with images, and icons for folders. With that said, I am not thrilled with this product and I will try my best to explain. I am not that tech savvy, but can usually figure out software fairly quickly with tutorials, guides, etc. I found no tutorials, and the software does not come with a help section. Folder-Factory is not intuitive (my opinion) and feels alien on my Mac. Learning something should be fun and adventurous, not frustratingly painful. Even for such a low price. Let me end with this. You can create amazing folders with this product, just expect to spend some time figuring it out.

Review by Matooba

gets better and better! - The new alignment tools are fantastic! So easy to make a custom folder icon. I use it daily to bundle art together for each project. Having a relative icon makes it spiffy to hand off to customers too. It is priced right, and it really works.
