Just found on the dev's site that the app is now available for $4.99 in AppStore, the version 1.31 under new name "Icon Slate".... shame that there is not even a demo fro previously free app which went from $0 to $4.99 in almost no time...

I love this application. Easy to use, great features, many accepted file types, very attractive interface, and does its job well. What more do you want from an app?

One note, though- in the dialog that pops up to ask whether to copy an image to smaller sizes, the word "which" is misspelled as "wich".

I love this app. I've manage to make some really great icons with this easy program. It even save files for Windows and as iContainers for CandyBar.
Love it. Thanks to the developers for making it.

All around a great little application. Provides more options than Icon Composer, and easier to work with too.

The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that it seems to make .png files imported into the icon a little fuzzy…Icon Composer imports the same images nice and sharp, but in Hobiconer they look slightly blurred by comparison.

I was on my girls macbook pro I bought her recently and didn't have Icon Composer (developer tools) at my disposal. I browsed over too MacUpdate and found this, I was Impressed.

Give this a look, you'll be surprised at how much better it is than Icon Composer
