App Depths LLC has launched a new piece of web application that can end the frustration of wasting time finding a winning app design quickly. It is a big development in the app developer community because of the importance of testing an app icon to get the best clickthrough rates and downloads once it goes live.

Icon Tester allows people to test their app icons, see how their designs can look on both Android and iOS, and then share it on popular social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. This allows them to get quick reviews on their work to see how effective their designs are.
The platform allows designers to test their Android app icons on Google Play, and Android devices. It also offers opportunities to let people test their iOS app icons on the Apple App Store, including iPhone and iPad.
By pasting the icon link on their mobile browser, users can add their app icon on their own device in a few simple steps, before sharing their design for instant feedback.
For now, unlimited icons can be uploaded for an unlimited period, so designers can try out multiple designs, conduct simple A/B split testing to ensure they work towards the best results for their app.
With more than a 2.7 million apps on the Apple App Store and 2.2 million apps on Google Play Store, it’s more important than ever before for designers to create attractive, compelling and engaging app icons so that their work can stand out and attract more downloads and potential buyers and users.
A well designed app icon can mean the difference between an app taking off and sinking, resulting in the app either amassing no downloads or attaining between hundreds or thousands of downloads.
Research shows that the best icons are simple, memorable, and beautifully designed. On top of this, the app icon should reflect the heart of the app itself even just from a quick glance. In order to be sure that designs are achieving this, it is importance to test them early and often.
Full details of how to use Icon Tester to do this can be found on the URL above.
