New App: iOS Icons

7


Just after building the Php script for generating iOS icons, I thought it would be a great idea to have a native OS X app that does the same thing. The app is very simple and requires only a few steps to produce all the icons you will need to support all of the current iDevices.

If you need some instructions to follow then read on, otherwise you can download below:

iOS Icons has been submitted to the Mac App Store for approval and will no longer be available for download from my blog. Please be patient for the app to appear in the Mac App store. When the app has been approved I will post here.

How to use iOS Icons:

After downloading iOS Icons, go ahead and unzip and move the App to your Applications folder. After you have done that you can double click the app and you should see a user interface as in the screen shot below:

iOS Icons - User Interface

After iOS Icons has launched you can drag your 512 x 512 icon file into the big window. If the application successfully accepted your image you will see your image loaded within the 512 x 512 window. At this point you can click preview to see what your generated icons will look like. If you click on Preview you should see something similar as in the screen shot below:

iOS Icons - Preview

It’s up to you if you want to click the Preview button or not, all of the icons will be generated regardless. Now all you have to do is click on Save and a Choose Folder Dialog will appear, as in the screen shot below:

iOS Icons - Choose Folder

You can either choose a folder to save your newly generated iOS icons to or you can choose to create a new folder and save them within the new folder. Once you have a folder picked out you can click on open. After clicking on Open, iOS Icons will quickly generated and save your icons to the specified folder. If all went well you should get a notification similar to the screen shot below:

iOS Icons - Finished

That’s it, that’s all there is to it. To me this is an invaluable tool and saves a lot of time. As always I’m hoping that the applications I develop help very many people and if it helps you feel free to drop me a comment saying thanks. Donations are always welcome.

    Nice app. But I can’t seem to get the glass/ rounded corner effects to export (version 1.1, bought on the app store.)
    Any suggestion?

    Bruce,

    My apologies, I should have made it clear that the glass and shine effects are for previewing only. Version 1.2 which is a free update is waiting for approval from Apple at the moment, has the ability to save with rounded corners and / or shine as well as many other new features.

    I can’t find this on the App Store? Was it renamed?

    Any chance of an update for the iPad3?
