Introducing iconerator – automatically generate all app market icons from a single image file
The icon requirements from the iOS App Store (9 unique) and Google Play Market (6 unique) are annoying to say the least. Updating one pepperoni on the SliceIsRight means generating 15 new icons following the specific guidelines set forth by the Apple & Google gatekeepers. The bain of every developer’s existence is boring, repetitive tasks (ex/ re-sizing and compressing a slew of PNGs) and it boggles me why this process has not already been automated by the open source community. To save us all the headache (and the $3 – $5 for some lame Mac app GUI), I give you Iconerator – a customizable command line tool to automate the generation of app market icons.
