Version 3.4
Review by CaptainXaos

Not very professional - This app has numerious issues with it that should have been fixed during testing before release. It works - but its doesn't really provide what you want. For example - if you drag another image into the application, it resets the "glass" parameters, even if you have previous parameters saved, if you try to apply a profile to it - it doesn't work. I am probably doing it wrong, but frankly, how hard is it get a simple app like this right? Stick to photoshop or one of the other apps on the store. Changing my review to 1 star down from 2.

Version 4.3
Review by MrAustinPDX

Not Retina Friendly - My primary complaint with this app is that it looks horrible on a Mac with a retina display. This isn’t simply religated to the images, either. Every bit of text seen on the app has that garbled look. I suppose the app may be useful but I had a hard time looking at it so I’ll be kissing my $5 goodbye and finding something else.

Version 4.3
Review by MarcusAureliusSeneca

Indispensable tool for iOS developers - Update: I’d love to see this updated for iOS 8 icon sizes. I’ve been using it in my workflow for over a year. It gets the job done.

Review by Biker-Bear

Excellent App and Invaluable Tool for Designers/Developers - This app is worth every penny. It’s a huge time saver for any designer/developer of mobile & web apps as it produces all of the various sizes needed for specific environments in one shot. The app iteself is very intuitive and has a clean and simple interface. I couldn’t have designed it better myself!

Version 4.3
Review by Nak13

Useful utility, but could use an update for the newer “Flat" icon look - This app does exactly what it claims, making preparation of the various sizes of icon images needed for an iOS app a breeze. It would be nice to see an update, though, since the “Glass” look has been supplanted by the newer, more subtle “Flat” icon look, and the iPhone 6 now uses an additional @3x icon image size.

Version 4.3
Review by jacesgrammie

Useful, easy to use. Does exactly what I want it to do. - I am not very familiar with apps for icons, but came across this one and have found it easy to use and just what I wanted for customizing the plain blue folders in my Finder. I have had fun creating the pictures in Photoshop Elements and finding images in pictures.
