Help and Support / Loads of Folders Help

Why did you make this?

Before I had access to timecode, after recording sound on location I liked to keep all the audio files organised so the editors would have an easy time of syncing them up. Usually I would organise the files by Slate or Scene numbers. This meant I was regularly creating hundreds of sequentially numbered folders by hand. So I made this app to help!

What is the difference between Loads of Folders 3 and 4? (geeky details)

Loads of Folders 1 - 3 are written using scripting language called AppleScript and wrapped in a proper interface using AppleScriptObjectiveC. While I still think that AppleScript is an amazing language, and is great for automating folder creation, as the development tools evolved it became harder to update the app with new features ect.

In 2021 I decided to port Loads of Folders to the current Apple programming language Swift. This comes with many inherent benefits such as speed and support for new macOS features, and will give me the ability to add new features to the app down the line. I decided to limit support of Loads of Folders 4 to the latest macOS (macOS 11 at time of writing) to maximise these benefits.

However I know some customers wont want to upgrade to Big Sur, or are using hardware that cant, so I am planning on providing minor updates and bug fixes for Loads of Folders 3 for as long as possible.

Which Version should I use?

If your Mac has macOS 11 Big Sur or later installed I recommend using Loads of Folders 4.

If your Mac has macOS 10.8 to macOS 10.15 you will need to use Loads of Folders 3.

Go to the Apple menu and click "About this Mac," if you are unsure what version of macOS you have.

How do I Buy the App?

Click on the "Download from Mac App Store" badge on this website or search the Mac App Store.

Do you offer a Demo version?

Not currently, but Loads of Folders 3 is free and works almost the same way. All be it a bit less polished! So give that a try first if you are unsure.

How will I get updates?

If you have automatic app updates enabled in macOS you will get them automatically when a new version is published. Otherwise go to the App Store page and hit the "update" button.

How much is Loads of Folders 3
