Our customers tell about us:
"Okay, I'm the first to admit that I'm a programmer at heart, and that I'm not very good with graphics or design. That said, I was looking for a program that would allow me to create an app icon from a .jpg that I bought from BigStockPhoto. After spending a few minutes looking at the app in the Mac app store, this one looked like it would work - and it did. Could not be simpler to use. Looking forward to putting it through the paces and using some of the more advanced features. Money well spent already. Kudos to the development team!" said Toronto Native
"Le digne sucesseur de Img2icns, voir mieux ! Elle prend aussi en charge la creation d'image en 1024x1024 pour mountain lion. Pour ceux qui souhaite changer les icnes de leur dossier ou applications, il faut creer un "create folder with icon" puis copier coller l'icne par la manipulation habituelle avec cmd i ;)Il manque plus qu'une traduction complete en FR. !" said Sw4gyB0Y
"I am a currently majoring Mobile Development B.S. and my specialization is for iOS, OS X and Safari add-ons. I got to tell that this app is great for students in this and also for developers.
