Simple, easy to use, does the job
A really handy app that makes generating ico files so much easier. Removes all the hassle of online convertors and gives you a preview as soon as you drop the image on the app with no file mess if you decide not to convert. Great design and functionaility - highly reccomended!
Some future improvements might be the ability to define the default destination of the FavIcon folder (so outside of Documents if you so wish) and the ability to save an Apple iOS touch icon PNG (with a settings preference to append the _precomposed bit to the filename if selected).
Works! But not perfect yet.
It outputs 3 files every time (a 16px, 32px and a 48px). I used the 16px as a favicon and the 48px as an for an Apple touch icon. It works nicely but it's not the right resolution for iPhone4 and therefore pixelated. This app really needs an update that gives the user a better selection of sizes (up to 114px) and allow toggling on/off for which sizes output as I had no use for the 32px version.
Oh, and I agree with Josh below, it's strange that it doesn't allow you to save it in a location you want. You get no choice, it saves the files to Documents\My Favicon's\Un-named Folder. Expected to find preferences in the file menu that would allow for customisation.
A must for any developer
This app is a simple yet extremely powerful and amazingly fast tool to convert pretty much any image type to a favicon.
If you are a developer there is simply no reason not to have this in your 'toolbox'. Download it now - you wont be disappointed and I understand there are more features in progress already.
