Iconviewer Released From Joint Iconfactory/Polymorph Venture

The Iconfactory and Polymorph Software have released a new app for Mac users, Iconviewer 1.0. Iconviewer is an icon utility designed for viewing all contents of a desktop icon. The app ships with drag and drop functionality and offers users cross OS functionality. According to The Iconfactory:

The Iconfactory, in conjunction with Polymorph Software Development is pleased to announce the release of our latest freeware icon utility, IconViewer.

IconViewer is a quick and easy way to view any and all resources contained within a Macintosh desktop icon. Simply drag and drop any icon onto IconViewer (or launch the program and select one from the File menu) and a small inspector window appears that allows you to browse the various sizes and bit depths of that icon.

IconViewer was originally developed for internal use and is very helpful for people running pre-OS X systems, but who want to view the 128x128 resources contained in a particular icon file. IconViewer also works well for OS X users who want to see an icon in all its128x128 glory, but who donit want to continually change their desktop / Dock settings to full magnification.

Carbon application for use with 8.6 - OS 10.x

  • View OS X icons (and their 128x128 versions) on OS 9
  • View 32-bit resources against different background colors
  • Dynamically scale 128is to simulate the OS X dock
  • Ease of use via drag & drop
