Ikonica is a simple Mac program that provides you with a quick and easy way to test your iOS icon designs. This utility comes in handy to iOS app developers who need to know if their icons have the perfect resolution for the created applications.
The tool sits on your Menu Bar where you can drag your iOS icons. It will display the test results under your status bar, without slowing down your computer while analyzing the icons in question.
Even though on the download page of the product it says it's imperative to pair this application with its iOS version (the iOS app needs to be installed on your iPhone or iPad), you can use it without meeting this requirement. I tested the app without pairing it with an iPhone and I was able to see if the icon was designed correctly. After the test is complete, you are provided with an URL to a webpage where you can preview the icon within an iPhone-like screen image.
Furthermore, the utility works very fast. Immediately after you drag-and-drop your icon over the app's menu from your status bar, the program lets you know if it's suitable for including it in your iOS utility or not. The tool shows a screen notification if the icon's resolution doesn't match the proper requirements for iOS apps.
All in all, this program is a reliable solution for iOS app designers who wish to test if the icons of their utilities have the perfect resolution. What's more, you don't have to pay a dime to use this application on your Mac.
