Could be better
The app is simple to use and looks great - doesn’t take up much space, works well. But I really wanted to restore the colored look in LIST VIEW. This app only really works in GRID VIEW, it’s pretty useless in List because the tiny colored folder is not much larger than the colored tiny dot ‘tag’. Please adjust so that the entire line of the folder changes color in list view, if so I would give it 5 stars.
I’ve been looking for this function ever since OS X dropped it. I’m a happy camper again. If I could add one thing to it, it would be to be to put a shortcut up in the menu bar. I don’t need it often enough to have it sitting in the dock, but I would like it to be more accessible than going through the Launch window.
Visual Categorization Help
The Finder's tiny dot tagging system is not visible enough for this senior citizen. I don't search for tags anyway, just eyeball them by color. Tried this app to color the entire folder, and it does the job beautifully.
some great features, one big problem
This small app is very easy to use. You can customize colors and save them easily—for example, so that your folders match the color palette of your desktop. For those of us who like strong visual cues, it makes up for the big loss of functionality Mac OS has had for years now. BUT: for some reason the app washes colors out—lowers the saturation by a lot. So maraschino ends up pink, for example. Maybe this was done to match Apple’s aesthetic? Anyhow, it doesn’t work for me! I can’t even get the level of saturation shown in the final screenshot. Developer: you’ve got a great product, but let the user set the saturation—the folder should be the same color as the swatch I select. Thanks!
It worked great!
This is perfect. Super simple to use, will make my filing system much easier and more visible than the folder tags in Yosemite OS X. Would love to see more colors, but its a great start.
