Carnation Software has announced Icon Pallet 2.0, its program and document launcher for OS X just released in the Mac App Store. With Icon Pallet, quickly switch between apps, launch documents and folder items. Drag files, folders and documents to the pallet. They will always be there for you. If your desktop is a cluttered mess and you can’t find anything, Icon Pallet is the solution.
* The perfect complement to your OS X Dock, Icon Pallet keeps your icons in the same location, and at the same size, no matter how many you add (up to 600).
* Be in control of your desktop with Icon Pallet.
* Icon Pallet stores the link to your folders, apps and documents, for launch and access with a single click.
* Organize your programs, files and folders on an expandable pallet instead of cluttering your desktop with icons or squeezing them onto a crowded dock.
* You can add names and colors to your folder icons, making it easier to recognize them on your Icon Pallet without having to roll the mouse over the folder icon to see the full name.
