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 kunphused

Paint 2 for folders - Folder Factory is Paint 2 In every way except I can’t find a way to save the new folder as a copy to use again if I need more than one. Please put together a manual for those of us that stumble around in search of an answer. The time spent guessing and redoing is debilitating. If you are going to go through the process of creating such a nice propgram take a few more days and write down how it works. please. That said. It is a good program, not as easy as you make it sound but it is cool. Thanks

Review by Diane Temple

I didn’t read the directions! - I’ve been using this app for quite some time. It is great because I can give all my folders the look I want them to have. It is extremely easy to use. The best I can say about the this app is I never read the instructions. It is so intuitive I love it. 😍
