Alternative App Icons on iOS
I really learned about alternative icons for iOS apps, when Charlie Chapman started his podcast series and caused a bunch of indie app developers to create an image in this wonderful draft-style. Inspired by this idea, I started to sketch my own version for Baby’s Vision and started to implement custom app icons in my own app. It’s not a straight forward process to add these icons, Apple’s documentation isn’t particularly helpful either, but I got it working. Fast forward to last week, when my friend Oli reached out asking for advice with an issue he was debugging and he found me in the Slack group because I mentioned app icons and I learned that there’s a much easier way to handle those icons using the new asset catalog’s features. Well, this is a post explaining both attempts.
