IconBox 2.5.4 – Now available on the Mac App Store

Wingene, Belgium – Independent developer Florian Soenens today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of IconBox 2.5.4, an important update to his popular Icon Organizer for Mac OS X in the Mac App Store now. At the end of last year, version 2.5 of IconBox was released with some major improvements concerning searching the web for icons as well as a restyled interface. You can think of IconBox as “iPhoto for your icons”.

Here’s an overview of the main features:
* Search through over 160.000 icons
* Download & Organize them in neat Boxes
* Customize those hard to reach icons
* X-ray: peek inside other Apps to reveal their icons
* An icon a day keeps the doctor away. A new icon, every day

IconBox 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, PDF, even the iContainer format and last but not least as a convenient .zip package, ready to share with others.

Mode 2: Customize:
Since version 2, IconBox features full icon customization. Users can customize their system icons, dock icons, application icons, volume icons and even their dock in an easy to use drag-and drop way. This means that one can download the well know “iContainers” from different sites all over the web, having them change the look of your system with the click of a single button!

Mode 3: Tools:
IconBox also features a “Tools” mode. The purpose of this mode is to host different icon related tools. The first tool available for now is “X-Ray Applications”. X-Ray scans your application folder for the apps within and by clicking an app, it shows all the available icons and images within the application package, letting you have a look at them (Even with, export them etc.

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, straight into the “Downloaded” Box, ready to share or customize.

2) 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.

3) IconFinder: Perhaps the most underestimated section in IconBox. It uses the API which let’s you search trough over 160.000 icons and allows you to instantly download them into IconBox by drag ‘n drop, conveniently creating all Icon Sizes as needed.

System Requirements:
* Mac OS X 10.6.6 or later
* 18.8 MB

Pricing and Availability:
IconBox 2.5.4 is $14.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide through the Mac App Store in the Graphics & Design category. For more screenshots and a FAQ, check out our brand new website.

Who’s killing the nuclear scientists? Is there an app for that?

Denver, Colorado – In events that seem straight out of a James Bond or Bourne Identity film, three Iranian nuclear scientists have met untimely demises at the hands of faceless assassins. A fourth scientist barely escaped a separate attempt on his life, and each attack is linked by an identical MO – a bomb magnetically placed on the target’s car.

Who is behind these black ops and what is their ultimate goal? In the wake of such mysterious deaths, a flurry of finger-pointing and threats have been levied across the world. While the US and Israel deny any involvement, Iran’s top cleric, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei places the blame squarely on their shoulders.

But if the US and Israel were either individually responsible or partnered in the effort, why would they bother to admit complicity when there’s no evidence to implicate either? Is each death an attempt to cripple Iran’s nuclear program? Or is something more sinister in motion, such as Iranians killing off their own top scientists before they can defect?

International Crimes Division:
The International Crimes Division is a small intelligence agency that investigates just such events. Renowned for uncovering cases of corruption, hunting down war criminals, and monitoring global corporations, the ICD exists to protect the innocent and uncover the truth at all costs.

Through a revolutionary iPhone application simply titled “The Hero”, ICD has tapped into an extensive task force comprised of civilians who are passionate about supporting world security and integrity. Users gain incredible insight into agency activities and can submit intelligence tips, keep an eye on vital global events, and even play central roles in operations. Unceasing surveillance and the bravery of their agents equip the ICD to defuse hostile situations just like the ongoing killings of Iran’s scientists.

As far as the nuclear assassinations, most theories in play contradict one another on major points. If Iran truly believed the US and Israel were behind this, why haven’t they retaliated in any way or provided their scientists better protection? If previous CIA intelligence reports stated Iran’s nuclear program wasn’t working towards nuclear weapons, why would they go to such lengths to stall its progress? Nor does any of this address the many independent terrorist groups both within Iran and in opposing countries.

Unfortunately, the usual policies of government taunting and denial remain the status quo. In the meantime, for those wondering how they can contribute their knowledge and skills to the fight against international terror and corruption, the ICD provides just such an opportunity.

Pricing and Availability:
The Hero 1.52 is only $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Entertainment category.
