Does what it says. - It creates working icons very easily. I've used this a few times on various production sites (for multiple-sizes of favicons mostly) and it is pretty great.

Version 4.0.0
Review by mattiscious

Update breaks the app - I just updated my Icon Slate app to version 4.0 via the Mac App Store, and now I can no longer use the app. I'm running Mac OS X 10.8.5 on a MacBook Pro, and when the app starts up, it immediately crashes every single time when I try to either create a new project or open an existing one.

Does what it says it does. - Icon Slate is super easy to use and it worked perfectly for me. I needed to create some Windows icons, which are basically packages of bitmaps (png in my case), with the file extension “ico”. The ico file holds all the different sizes of your icon, and Windows picks the one to use based on context. That might be an oversimplification, but for my job, that’s all I needed to understand. You could get a Photoshop plugin to “complie” the ico file, but Icon Slate, which is a stand alone app, seemed easier, and it did the job of compiling the ico package very quickly and intuitively. I should mention that I tried the free Sketch plugin of the same name, but I couldn’t get it to work. So I paid the five bucks for the stand-alone app, and I’m good to go. I should mention that Icon Slate does a lot more than what I used it for.
