3. iOS app icon is square and you should get it designed by some designer or if you have the logo file then you can generate the app icons from online services like http://makeappicon.com/. In that case your iOS AppIcon will look good if your log is already close to square in shape. Some other iOS app generating web services are:

– www.gieson.com/Library/projects/utilities/icon_slayer/
– http://www.quirco.com/iPhoneIcon/
– http://www.appiconsizes.com/

– 29px
– 40px
– 50px
– 57px
– 58px
– 72px
– 76px
– 80px
– 100px
– 114px
– 144px
– 152px

If you’re in the column view of Explorer then clicking on a file will show its size (highlighted in green in Fig 3). Drag and drop on the appropriate tile in the Editor area. Tiles labelled as 1x will have the specified size. e.g. Tile labeled 1x under iPhone 57pt will have AppIcon of size 57px by 57px. Tiles labelled as 2x will have AppIcon of double the size mentioned. e.g. Tile labelled 2x under iPhone 57pt will have image having size 114px by
