[prMac.com] Plainevaux, Belgium - DouWere, s.p.r.l. today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Hue Dada ! 1.0 for OS X, a launch-it-once-then-forget-about-it application that drastically enhances the user experience with the Finder. Until today, with Mac OS X, giving a tag to a Finder item just drew - at best - a small coloured dot, near the item's name. Using Hue Dada ! the entire icon of the item can literally reflect the tag color.
Goodbye monotone blueish folder icons! Locating your own specific items visually in the Finder has never been easier, for more than twelve years. From huge folder icons on the Desktop, to small icons previews in popup menus, the tag color is there.
* Technically secure, the application automatically gives custom icons to items as the user would manually, through the Information pane and a graphical editor. Hue Dada ! respects the Apple policies regarding sandboxed applications, only using documented and safe methods.
* Algorithmically efficient, the application bans any unnecessary polling operation, relying only on Grand Central Dispatch triggers, ensuring best energy usage on MacBooks. Hue Dada ! transfers its heavy operations on background threads, keeping the user experience as fluid as can be.
* Graphically clever, the application respects the original design of color distribution for "standard" icons, just adapting the color hue. Hence its name. Documents with previews are processed differently: images are monochromised, and texts are just colorised - always according to the tag color.
A Welcome screen will guide you. Support is available and feedback is welcome: see the about window.
* OS X 10.10 or later
* Supports El Capitan
* 64-bit processor
* 4.2 MB
Pricing and Availability:
Hue Dada ! 1.0 is offered for the introductory price of $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide through the Mac App Store in the Graphics & Design category.
