The Problem


Mac OS X lets you keep folders in the Dock and the Finder’s sidebar. This makes accessing frequently used folders quick and easy.

The problem is that without customized folder icons, you cannot tell the folders apart.

In many cases, having a short text label over an icon makes it much easier to tell what’s in the folder. However, creating such an icon using a graphic app and an icon app can be difficult and time-consuming.

The Solution


FolderBrander lets you quickly and easily alter the look of your folders.

Just pick a base icon and type in a short text label. Two sliders let you rotate and skew the text to match the orientation and perspective of the base icon. And to position the text, simply click and drag.

Feature Highlights

  • Easily add text to folder icon
  • Rotate/skew text
  • Text shadow effect
  • Extensible with your own base icons
  • When you are satisfied with how your new icon looks, simply click the Apply button and you’re done.

    System Requirements: Mac OSX 10.4 or later.

    Tembo: Easy and Effective Searching

    Tembo is an efficient search tool that is based upon the Spotlight engine.
    The job of Tembo is to make searching (and finding) of files, mail messages, bookmarks, … as easy as possible.

    Grouped Search Results

    At first sight you will find Tembo to have been inspired by the original Spotlight interface as we knew it under Mac OS X Tiger.
    Search results are grouped by categories. Preferences allow for categories to be enabled, disabled and reordered.

    Drill Down: Details & Filters

    Behind a small arrow on the header bar for each group you will find the real power of Tembo: drill-down. Tembo may list up to 2500 search results within each group. Here you will find filter appropriate for the context. These help you sort through the list of results.

    More than a File Search Tool

    Thus Tembo is much more than a file search tool. It works as an extension to Mail.app / iChat.app to locate messages. And as extension to Safari to search browsing history and bookmarks, etc.

    Filters by category

  • Bookmarks: Type, URL Domain
  • Documents: File Type
  • Fonts: File Type
  • Images: Resolution, File Type
  • Messages: Subject, From, To
  • Movies: File Type, Codec
  • Music: Artist, File Type
  • PDF Documents: Author
  • Source Code: File Type
  • New in Tembo 1.4

  • Result count in group headers
  • Option to use larger font size
  • Option to quit on close of last window
  • Advanced option to exclude files by type
  • AppleScript API to open search to a given folder

    System Requirements: Mac OSX 10.6.6 or later.

    Developer Interview

    What’s the most unique, useful feature of your product?

    Tembo groups results in file categories: Messages, Images, Documents….
    This makes it easy to skim results. Drill down into a category to find more results.

    Why did you create this app? or What need were you trying to satisfy?

    The very purpose of Tembo is to make Spotlight both more efficient and easier to use.

    What features should a prospective buyer look into during a trial of your product?

    The highlight of Tembo is the drill-down screens for the various groups. Each group offers dedicated filters to quickly narrow down results.

    What features would you like to add to your product that at this time seem improbable/impossible?

    Tembo lives in a somewhat restrictive environment: The Mac App Store. Restrictions made some features impossible to implement.
    The one I probably miss most is “Text Preview”. This remains unique to HoudahSpot.

    What is most interesting to you about developing SW for the Mac platform.

    Developing for the Mac is both more challenging and more rewarding than developing for the iPhone.
    On the Mac your application lives in a large ecosystem of other products that you want to interact with.
    Tembo supports Apple Script, provides Mac OS X Services, integrates with PathFinder…
    In the end, a simple application becomes a versatile tool that each user can shape to fit his/her needs.

    What are some interesting experiences you’ve had creating new versions of your software when OS is upgraded?

    New Mac OS X releases are so very tempting. Apple always adds so many new API that make development easier and open doors to new features.

    Yet one has to not to leave existing users stranded by rushing to the new OS. Sometimes new ideas have to wait for the user base to move up to the latest OS.
    Tembo was our first Snow Leopard only application. With Lion just around the corner, it is now safe to assume that the larger share of Mac users is now running Snow Leopard.

    What’s your favorite Mac app out there from another developer? Why?

    LaunchBar. Followed by 1Password.

    IconBox 2.1
    The First Icon Organizer for Mac OS X – Reborn.
    Updated 03/25/11 to 2.1!
    Special Offer Below…

    Normally: $24.99

    ZOT Price: $14.99

    Click to MacZOT Try Now  



    IconBox 2.1 is a cool Mac icon organizer/customizer and more… When the first version of IconBox was released 7 years ago, it was the first Icon Organizer for Mac OS X, allowing users to conveniently organize their collection of icons in an iPhoto-like way. With version 2, IconBox has been completely rewritten and features a brand new interface.

    IconBox 2.1 is one App featuring 4 modes!

    Mode 1: Organize

    We have the same convenient organization features with a couple of additions.
    The libraries are now called ‘Boxes’. Drag icons from the finder into a box, create as many boxes as you like.
    Furthermore Boxes can be arranged in folders and subfolders and you can re-drag Boxes and folders to change their order.
    We also created ‘Smart Boxes’, like iTunes Smart Playlists, these folders are constantly updated based on given criteria.
    The search feature has been revamped to search for different criteria and the speed has been improved a lot.

    Besides organizing, you can export icons to different formats like ICNS, png, tiff, jpeg, gif, the iContainer format and last but not least as a convenient .zip package, ready to share with others.

    Mode 2: Customize

    With version 2.1, IconBox features full icon customization. Users can customize their system icons, dock icons, application icons and even their dock in an easy to use drag-and drop way.

    Mode 3: Tools

    The Tools section is meant to feature different Icon Tools, serving different purposes.
    In this new release there is 1 tool available, called ‘XRay’. More tools will be added in future releases.
    The XRay tool scans your application folder and lists all of the available applications.
    When clicking an application, you are able to peek inside the contents of an application and filter all the stuff in there by type. (png, tiff, pdf, ins)
    Furthermore you are able to export selected items or even every item in an application to your disk.

    Mode 4: Online

    The Online mode contains 3 features.

    1: Icon Of The Day: A new icon from a particular icon designer every day, downloadable directly into IconBox 2.1, straight into the ‘Downloaded’ Box, ready to share or customize.
    2: IconFinder: IconBox 2.1 implements the powerful iconfinder.com API with which you can search all the icons on iconfinder.com without having to leave the App. Found icons are directly downloadable and also feature a link to the Designers’ website.
    3: Icon Sites: A convenient list of major icon sites on the web, more sites will be added on the go. Double-Clicking a site opens it up in your default web browser.

    IconBox 2.1 features a fully functional 15 day trial with the restriction of importing no more than 250 icons.
    It can be purchased for $14.99 via this macZOT offer to remove these restrictions. (Regular price is $24.99)
    IconBox 1.5 users can upgrade their copy for only $9.99.
    IconBox 2 is a free upgrade to IconBox 1.5 users who purchased their copy after January 31, 2010.

    System Requirements: Mac OSX 10.5 or later.

    TranslateIt is a mature and useful dictionary app. I’ve been using it for years, and it just gets more powerful with age without sacrificing simplicity.

    Thank you for writing. I use TranslateIT on my Mac since more than 2 years. I find this really great and useful for my work and everyday life. It would be also great to get iphone version ones.

    Sergey Bardadim
    Country: Russian Federation
    City: St.Petersburg

    I am german and live mostly in english speaking countries. I do need a
    very good english german dictionary, since I need to look up uncommon
    words. TranslateIt is the first program I found which fulfills my
    requirements
    , it has never not found a translation for me. I also
    do enjoy the history function, which helps me to remember the new
    vocabulary. I highly recommend this program.

    Tarika Uehleke
    Country: Germany

    I use TranslateIt! for Mac every day and find it excellent. I don’t think there is anything comparable on the market.
    The program is unobtrusive and integrates into Mac OS very well. The dictionaries are extensive, the user interface is well designed, and the software is very stable – hasn’t crashed yet. I’m very happy with TranslateIt!.

    Gleb Dolgich
    Country: Lithuania
    City: Kaunas

    I think TranslateIt! is fantastic.
    I use it for German/English translation or vice-versa. It’s one of the few products out there that does both (I have English/German dictionary on my Mac, but it doesn’t do German/English). If there’s a computer nearby, TranslateIt! is faster than using a bound dictionary, and more reliable than web translators.

    FrameLoader
    Digital Picture Frame Manager

    Normally: $14.95

    ZOT Price: $7.95

    Click to MacZOT Try Now  



    ‘You may want to consider getting FrameLoader even if your digital picture frame is Mac compatible out of the box. It’s easy to set up and even easier to maintain. And if you upgrade to a different frame or want to duplicate one, everything you need is ready and waiting.’ – Appletell.com (Rating: 5 out of 5 Apples)

    The Best Way to Sync Picture Frames with your Mac

    Synchronize your pictures, music and videos with your digital picture frame, SD card or USB memory stick. Use FrameLoader to conveniently choose the media files you want to see on your digital picture frame. Select your iPhoto albums, your iTunes playlists or drag and drop your media files into FrameLoader to have them synced.

    Dead Simple. FrameLoader displays all your iPhoto albums and iTunes playlists so you just have to select the ones you like to use. Click the sync button to transfer your media data. The next time you connect your digital picture frame or memory device, it will be synced automatically – you do not even have to run FrameLoader to keep your media files in sync.

    For picture frames around the globe. FrameLoader works with all digital picture frames. If a digital picture frame can not be connected directly, you can sync to a SD card or USB memory stick and connect this device with your digital picture frame to display your media files.

    Automatic conversion. FrameLoader will automatically convert your pictures, music and videos to the best viewing size for your digital pictureframe.

    Intelligence included. FrameLoader will change file names for a frame on the fly, if needed. It will not, however, change file names on your Mac. So you see files as you know them, the frame will get the files as it needs them.

    For more than one device. FrameLoader allows you to administer more than one device. You can set the sync options like the albums and playlists for each device separately.

    Watch it on the big screen. Sync your media files to a memory stick or SD card and use it with your big screen TV to watch the latest holiday pictures in perfect size with your family and friends.

    Feature Highlights

  • Automatic sync of iPhoto albums and iTunes playlists
