App Icon Generator for IOS and Android #ios #app #development #windows


Icon Slayer

Web App / Progressive Web App

An Icon is shown on the device home screen when saving a bookmark. This is similar in nature to the favicon for websites. The -precomposed portion of the filename prevents Apple from automatically adding gloss, rounded corners and drop shadows.

Refer to the Webpage Icon Apple documentation page for additional details.

Apple invented the iOS Web Clip idea, but it has been picked up by Chrome (and others).

We’ve also included a manifest.json file for you as a starting point for your Progressive Web App .

See the index.html source code for how to include the icons in your page(s).

Usage + Known Issues

– You can load PNG, JPG or BMP images. PNG files can have transparency.

Flatten source PNGs. Some browsers require source PNG files to be flattened , meaning that PNG files should not have layer information in them. The PNG can have an alpha channel (where parts of the image is invisible), but layer information can be problematic for some browsers. Flattening maintains transparency, but just reduces all layers to a single layer.

Reduce image dimensions. Source PNGs should be no larger than 1240 x 1240 pixels. The smaller your source file, the faster things will process. A good rule of thumb is to make your source file as big as the biggest icon you need.

– Safari on Mac can freeze during export. Icon Slayer uses Adobe Flash, and this is a known problem that Adobe has not resolved. Try using another browser such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome .
