Asset Catalog Creator takes any image and creates a full set of icons, launch screens or pretty much any other type of image that you’ll need to make an app on any of Apple’s platforms. Unlike other icon generators, batch resizers or scripts, these are converted directly into the latest Asset Catalog format; eliminating any additional steps before they’re ready to use.
As of iOS 12, there are 26 different image sizes needed for a universal app icon as well as another 26 different splash screen dimensions! Even if you already have an automated way of batch resizing images it’s a tedious process to identify and drag all of the files into their respective places and then deal with any misfitting sizes. Asset Catalog Creator is configured with well over 100 image dimension requirements so you’ll never need to look a size up again.
Asset Catalog Creator is designed to be quick and easy to use and fit seamlessly into your workflow. All you need to do is add an image, point the app to where your project is, pick your icon type and export. The app finds the existing asset catalog(s) and 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 and organising your image files much easier and you’ll also benefit from improved performance and reduced app install size, thanks to the smarter way asset catalogs are compiled and archived into binaries.

STANDARD AND 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 and 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 and 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 and there is nothing additional in the app for you to purchase.

You're now able to select multiple device types, at the same time, when exporting assets. Meaning that if you have a single image and you want to export a variation for iPhone, iPad, Apple TV etc. you can do it in one go.
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.
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.
Really useful. It takes one of the worst/most boring parts of development and turns it into an easy 2 minute task. Wouldn’t make an app without it.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
