A New Treat for Halloween – CandyBar 2.0, No Tricks!

October 7, 2004

CandyBar, everyone’s favorite Mac OS X utility for customizing system level icons, has just been updated to version 2.0! This major update includes several of the most frequently requested features from our users, including the ability to customize the icons of installed applications as well as their associated toolbar and document icons, quick customization of volumes, an expanded selection of System icons, auto-updating, and more!

In CandyBar’s new “Applications” panel, CandyBar scans your hard drive for installed apps, then lets you drag in replacements from the Finder or from Pixadex to quickly change the app icons. An “App Extras” view allows you to examine an application’s icon contents (including toolbar icons and document icons) to quickly change those as well. As always, reverting back to original icons is quick, easy and safe too, and CandyBar is not a “haxie” or a patch that could potentially destabilize running applications.

We invite you to visit the CandyBar homepage to learn more about what’s new and to download the program. CandyBar 2.0 is shareware and is available from Panic for the low price of $12.95 USD. Registered users of CandyBar 1.0 can upgrade to version 2.0 for a pittance of $6.95. Those who registered CandyBar after September 1st, 2004 are entitled to a free upgrade.

Update: Panic has released a new version of CandyBar that includes bug fixes and minor tweaks. Version 2.0.1 is available now and is a free update to registered users of CB 2.0.
