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.

Review by Adrian_movie_fan

Does what it is suppose to do - Not sure why people are complaing here. App does exactly what is suppose to do. If you want iTunes cover art it clearly states you can purchase it. I purchased it and it works well. Did covers for nearly 1000 of movies. Looks great on Apple TV. I emailed developer with some suggestions and questions and he got back to me within few minutes. I usually do not write reviews but i just do not see a reason why negative reviews. App works no better or worse than what it is advertised to do.

Review by Lost_To_Me

NOT WHAT YOU WANT - Same gripes as other reviewers. This "app" does NOT do what it promises and also only feigns the ability to do what it says it can in product description (boarderline fraud) if you shell out an ADDITIONAL $4.99 after already purchasing it. I really wish Apple would spend a little bit of itme reading these reviews and perhaps set some standards with the app developers.

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??

A good App gone bad - Latest updates have rendered it near useless. Never finds the correct film art even on obvious titles. Hope it gets fixed soon. Anyone know a good alternative?

Review by loveutbball

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
