Quickly generate icons for iOS apps


It can be painful generating icons of different sizes for your application, if you do not know how to script and automate the image processing on Photoshop/Gimp. But there are time saver alternatives that can simplify the process.

I always start with 1024 X 1024 image and use these utility apps to generate icons in a matter of seconds.

1. Prepo (I would give 5 Star Rating to this App)

It is easy to use, generate all different sizes of icons for iPhone/iPad and Universal Apps. (With Round Corner and Shine Effects)
