Another Week, Another Project: Icon Maven

| Comments

On Monday night, I was trolling through Google looking for an icon for an iOS app I’m building. I have literally thousands of icons stored on my computer, but none of them fit my needs. Google was basically no help at all. Searching for “iOS app icons”, “mobile app icons”, or variations of the above sends you to year old Quora and Stack Overflow posts, one-off sites from icon creators, or borderline spam sites. Needless to say, I was a bit frustrated.

So, I did what anyone would do: I fired up TextMate, created a new Rails app, and launched it within 24 hours.

Icon Maven is the the easiest way to find icons for your iOS, mobile and web projects. It’s a curated collection of icon sets that don’t suck. For the moment, the collection is relatively small. But, I think what’s there is fantastic, and it will only continue to grow. Check it out!
