IconDropper is an exciting piece of shareware from Craig Hockenberry. IconDropper allows you to customize your Mac's icons on-the-fly through the use of Drag-n-Drop technology. Instead of having to copy and paste custom icons from tons of folders on your hard drive, IconDropper stores all icons in custom designed sets called "packs". A single click is required to update any folder's icon and see the results in real time.
We are dedicated to the seemingly nonexistent art of designing awesome freeware icons for your Mac.
