Asset Catalog Creator takes any image & turns it into a complete & ready-to-use app icon. It supports every type of icon you'll ever need for any of Apple's platforms; iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, tvOS, macOS etc. It uses the xcasset catalog format & it's always updated for the very latest devices & software.
It doesn't just do app icons. It can make any icon within your app; converting your image into all the required 1x, 2x & 3x formats. If you're using vector-based iconography you can preserve all your vector data during the conversion & output your icons as pdfs, while still having control over the size of the image. It even includes a list of preset sizes for standard interface elements, such as tab bar icons, navbar icons etc.
As well as in-app icons, it also supports creating everything you need for Complications, iMessage, & Game Center.
As of iOS 15, there are 25 different image sizes required to make an iPhone/iPad app! Asset Catalog Creator is configured with well over 100 image dimension requirements. You’ll never need to look a size up again.
Asset Catalog Creator is designed to be quick & easy to use & fit seamlessly into your workflow. All you need to do is drag in an image, point the app to where your project is, pick your icon type & export. The app finds the existing asset catalog(s) & has advanced merging abilities that allow it to append or overwrite based on your choices.
If you’ve never used Asset Catalogs in your apps before, now is a great time to start. You’ll find managing & organising your image files much easier & you’ll also benefit from improved performance & reduced app install size, thanks to the smarter way asset catalogs are compiled & archived into binaries.

STANDARD & PRO APP VERSIONS
The app is available in two different versions, Asset Catalog Creator & Asset Catalog Creator Pro. Both versions have an identical set of features but have different pricing structures to suit your preference. Asset Catalog Creator gives you the ability to make iOS app icons out-of-the-box & you need to unlock the ability to create each additional type of icon via in-app purchases. The in-app purchases are all non-consumable so will be unlocked permanently & can be used across all of your computers. The difference with the Pro version is that every type of icon etc. is unlocked out-of-the-box & there is nothing additional in the app for you to purchase.

Fixed an issue where certain non-square vector images exported as PDFs would scale incorrectly when set to crop or fit.
Ratings and Reviews
Very NIce and Handy Tool
Over the years, they asked me to write a review. I don’t write reviews. But, it is Christmas. This app has been like a faithful dog. Always works, doesn’t make a lot of noise. It is always there for me when I need it. Don’t change a thing! It is just simple and straightforward — so I never have to “remember how to use it”. It is not a high maintenance wife or girlfriend — it is a true love.
I hate to suggest any changes at all — its worth is in its elegant solution to a specific part of the work flow. But, it would be really cool for it to put tab bar icons/glyphs into shape (those 25x25/50x50/75x75 that really need to be 1-bit transparent). I would easily pay the whole price of the app again just to add a button to do that.
IF YOU MAKE APPS YOU NEED THIS.
I've been using this app to create app icons for atleast 4-5 years now so I figured it's worth a review! I've been graphic designing for 10 years and only programming for 5. In the beginning I created all of my app icons one by one in Photoshop in every possible size. It was a nightmare. Once I discovered this app my life was changed and I started saving HOURS OF TIME! My current workflow goes like this Sketch App Icon -> Recreate the sketch in Illustrator -> Drag and drop the exported .PNG file to Asset Catalog Creator -> Drag and drop the results directly into Xcode. THERE IS LITERALLY NO REASON IN THE ENTIRE WORLD THAT YOU SHOULD NOT BUY THIS APP AND THE IN APP PURCHASES!
Developer Response ,
Thanks so much for your review. I’m happy to hear the app’s been a part of your workflow for so long. Sorry it’s taken me so long to write a response.
Really a great app
I develop IOS apps and this tool saves me tons of hours and frustration. I’ve been using it for years to build my assets. Everytime Apple comes up with a new requirement, I pull Asset Catalog Creator and it already has the necessary support. I just rebuild and it’s done. Always been done right. Really a great quality app and extremely useful.
