Software Spotlight: ShapeShifter

You’ve heard the rumors about illuminous, right? Sure you have…

If you’re like me, though, and you really just can’t wait to see a refreshed look to your OS X UI, then boy have I got an app for you. It’s called ShapeShifter, and it does a fantastic job of reskinning your entire OS with a new, unified look of your choice. (click on any of the images below for full size screenshots)

ShapeShifter is made by the fine folks at Unsanity, and has a free 15 day trial…after that it’ll cost you $20 bucks.

  1. I’ve been using Shape Shifter for quite some time — it is AWESOME!! The article failed to mention that you can also change your cursers if you purchase Mighty Mouse — buy them at the same time and you can get both for $29. It’s only a $1 savings, but hey, a buck is a buck, right!
