Quickly preview app icon on a real device

Introducing small new tool called App Icon Preview.

I want press kit

Some days ago I was working on alternate icon for one of my apps and thought that it would be nice to see it on a real device. And since Safari allows you to add book marks to your home screen - idea for a new project was born.

Meet App Icon Preview

The App Icon Preview usage is super simple. You just need to upload image and then you get link to add to your home screen.

Open the link in Safari on your iOS device, open the Actions/Share sheet and select the action "Add to Home Screen". And that's it.

Don't have any app icon handy? Try it with this example.

If you want something even faster, you can try the iOS App Icon Fiddler which will place your icons on a iPhone mockup in your browser.

Haven't implemented alternate icon yet? I have a tutorial with all you need to know.
