You just need to download the icon you want, find the app to update on Finder, select it and "File > Get Info" or "⌘-I" and drag and drop the downloaded .icns file to the new window.

    No preview images when using the search

    Describe your issue here, and if possible, add an image.

    When a search keyword is entered and the grid is updated, the preview images aren't loading. (Tested in Safari and Chrome) This is 100% reproducable and always happens when using the search:

    IntelliJ_WebStorm Resized and Add New Icons

    I found that the exist IntelliJ_WebStorm Icon is bigger than the normal size. So, I resized it that will look as normal one. I made this pull request so I hope it can replace the old one. Files that contain an icns file, a high-res png file and a low-res png file.

    Sorry because previous name and pull request was wrong, so I made some extra commits. Now everything should work fine.

    Thanks!

    PhpStorm

    phpstorm.zip with icns and pngs

    I made this for fun, not going to do the rest fo the jetbrain suite of apps. But thought I would share this one anyway. Can more than likely be improved, but good enough as an initial concept. phpstorm

    Add 9 new icons

    Hi there,

    It's my first time to use GitHub so it may cause some problems.

    The icons includes: ACDSee Photo Studio 6, App Cleaner & Uninstaller, EasyConnect, IT Home, NetEase Mail Master, NetEase Music, Snipaste, XMind and YouDao Dictionary. 9 new icons in total. My commits info were wrong by mistakes.

    Please let me know it I can improve some. And I have submitted an issue to submit my new icon, cause I was not sure at that time. So, just close it if everything goes fine in the pull request.

    Thanks!

    To Submit: Various + Script

    I have a few icons I made for myself to share. Some are lower quality versions I made based on default icons to match the UI.

    I also made a script to easily set icons. Just copy the script and 'fileicon' (included) to the folder where the icons are (make sure icon names match app names exactly), run 'sh script.sh' and type in your password and it will automatically set your app icons.

    Bug in icon sizes

    I have installed your icons to installed apps, but they are different in size. For example, as you see in that picture, IntelliJ, PyCharm, and DataGrip icons are bigger than for e. g. GitHub Desktop's icon. How can I fix this issue?

    Search broken

    The results returned by the search functionality are terribly inaccurate. They seem to do some kind of fuzzy matching where they only return autocorrected matches and ignore direct matches for the search query. For example: searching 'Slack' only returns icons with the name 'Black' in them.

    As you can see in this image, the first immediate results on the site contains a Spotify alternative icon: Screenshot 2021-02-15 at 10 51 32

    However, when searching for Spotify, none of the results are any of the actual direct Spotify replacements. Just a few related app icons: Screenshot 2021-02-15 at 10 51 23

    Dead icon links

    Certain icons have invalid links

    e.g. Anki: http://82.145.63.160:1337/parse/files/macOSicons/4a77a633f454ed94cbcc36324a4efd14_Anki.icns e.g. Antidote: http://82.145.63.160:1337/parse/files/macOSicons/e4c23b1454714326e3b3c3e8a6d68476_1606320367174_Antidote%2010.icns

    Downloading one's own submissions contributes to download tally, and multiple downloads from same IP are tallied

    Describe your issue here, and if possible, add an image.

    Hi! It seems when downloading one's own submissions, even those awaiting approval, the download tally goes up.

    Likewise, successive downloads of the same icon from the same IP address also count.

    These two oversights can likely be abused through bots in order to artificially prop up download numbers even before submissions are approved.

    iOS icons are too zoomed in

    When converting the macOS icons to iOS icons, the site zooms in the icon too much, which can interfere with the content or just make them look strange.

    It also appears to be slightly off-center to the left and top.

    Icon on Home Screen: image

    Icon on Website image

    I realize you need to zoom it in extra to some extent, but I've seen someone who manually did it and they look perfect.
