My first mac app, iConify is available on Mac App Store! After 17 days on radio silence from Apple, they approved it today.

What is iConify?

iConify is a quick little tool to resize icons for your iOS app. The beauty of iConify is that, there are no configuration options, tweaks whatsoever. Launch the app, drag an icon into it, Boom, a resized and properly named file appears inside the iConify folder.

How is it different from competing apps?

While there are plenty of icon resizing apps, they aren’t just as smart or as iConify. iConify is smart in the sense, it tries to detect icon files from other assets and generate files accordingly. iConify also auto names the generated files from your source file.

Pro feature

Since iConify supports drag and drop, you don’t even have to save or export a file to generate icons. Just drag a proxy icon from whichever app you use, photoshop or pixelmator into iConify. No questions asked, your icons/assets are generated. This means, when you are working on Photoshop, you don’t even have to bring iConify to focus. Drag the proxy icon onto iConify and continue working on your graphic stuff. It’s that simple.

The app is available exclusively from the Mac App Store.

    The YouTube demo is too small to see what you’re doing.

    I hope you are working on a “new iPad” @2x update to iConify. Not looking forward to remembering how to do icon resizing manually. You have spoiled me.

  • Cyberpawz

    I’ve been attempting to use the program, two things. 1 it makes great icons. 2. When I attempt to make it so I can copy and paste the icon to a folder in which the icon was created for, I can’t.  It shows a blank PNG image as the icon to copy.   I am using Lion, the latest version. Hope this helps.

    hi i really love this app, saves me so much time. I was wondering if you can add 300X300 to the list? also the itunes icon 512×512 isn’t generated with .png naming.

    • eclux

      Say it isn’t so. Does Apple require a 300×300 for something now?

      In iOS app bundles the iTunesArtwork file must not have an extension. Or that used to be the case anyway.

        hello 300×300 is for nook. also windows 8 uses 150×150, 30×30. =)

    Where is the iConify Folder????????

  • Thomas

    Icons are being generated at twice the intended size. Building Icon-72 with dimensions of 144×144 and Icon-72@2x dimensions of 288×288. Help?

      I have the same problem on Retina Macbook. All pictures are double as wide and high as they should be.

    • Nick

      This appears to be a bug in iConify when you run it on a Retina Macbook.
      The icon images have the correct dimensions for the same source image when iConify is run on a non-retina Mac.

    Awesome tool – and has become part of my teams workflow. However, now that iOS7 has been released the Icons it generates are the wrong size. Hope you get a chance to update it. Would very happily pay for it

    • MugunthKumar

      An update has been submitted and waiting for approval

      • Martin

        That’s awesome. Thank you!

        Hi, I love your tool, but since the update to version 1.4 it crashes right after starting it. Everytime. So I don’t even get to the point of seeing a window. I deleted it and installed it new. No change. I’m running 10.7.5 on a MBAir could that be a problem?
