Polish and Cherish your App Icon
Your App’s Icon is its most important asset on the App Store. It’s the first thing users see of your work so cherish it, polish it and continue until it’s pure eye candy. Definitely worth the effort!
Light Table View
Being able to see your Icon in various sizes can be decisive. Around others, it has to stand out and when it’s big, it has to be neat. The light table view helps you have a clear vision on the matter..
The best way to achieve a nice Icon is through iteration. Sketch your Icon using the fully featured graphic editor, then collect professional feedback to nourish the next version. Repeat.
It’s always good to check if your Icon supports the typical glow effect. AppCooker not only enables you to check this but also offers other types of glows that might suit your creation better.

Sketch iOS Icons with AppCooker.
The Icon is the face of your application, which makes it a primary marketing asset. Creating great Icons requires to experiment and iterate until the ideal fit is found. Use the freehand tool, vector shapes or images to try out the look and feel of your Icon ideas in no time, and see the results in different sizes. You have access to the same tools as when you create a Mockup. As you may have noticed, there is no “i” button; all of an object’s properties appear at the bottom of the screen to give you as much space as possible so you can concentrate on the mockup and not be distracted by the interface itself.
As opposed to the “i” button in other Applications, AppCooker displays all of the selected object’s properties in a minimalistic property bar. This gives you full control and enables you to easily customize every object on the canvas. The default property bar (when no object is selected) displays general options, explained below..
Highlight or no highlight
Some like it, others hate it. AppCooker gives you a choice to test and add/remove the highlight on your Icon. The default highlight is the “Classic” one. All others are here as extra. Using the classic highlight on your Icon will instantly associate it to the iOS ecosystem on your website and marketing documents. Not using a highlight will increase your brand style and make it more mainstream.
