Spice Up Your Desktop With A Little Animation

Kinetic Creations has updated their icon animation application, Kineticon, to version 1.7.2. Kineticon allows users to add a new element of motion to their desktop by allowing them to use animated, instead of static, icons. According to Kinetic Creations:

Kinetic Creations, Inc. has released Kineticon version 1.7.2, an update to the MacOS System Extension that allows users to replace their static icons with icon animations.

Kineticon selectively replaces icons displayed by your Mac with icon animations. Wherever the MacOS would normally draw a regular, static icon, Kineticon can replace it with an icon animation. Included with the Kineticon package is an icon animation editor. This editor allows you to create your own animated icons and includes drag and drop support between itself and the MacOS Finder and 3rd party graphic or icon editors.

Kineticon version 1.7.2 is a free upgrade for registered users of any earlier version and incorporates the following changes from version 1.7.1:

  • Fixed "type 3 error" with QuickTime player and some other applications
  • Fixed a bug that could cause Kineticon to freeze when loading kines
  • Other minor, cosmetic bug fixes

Kineticon is available via electronic download for US$14.95, and on CD for US$24.95. You can find more information at the Kinetic Creations Web site.
