- Designing or developing iOS applications? Crunch is a simple, yet powerful, utility that extracts the content of iOS applications and makes designing nifty icons easy-peasy. But that's not all…
Export iOS and OS X application material
- Export resource files including images and icons from applications (.ipa and .app files). Assets bundled in Asset Catalogs are extracted when exporting.
- Export in batch by dropping a folder of applications onto Crunch to export them all.
- Apply filters to export only certain files: images, media, icons.
- Use export options: keep folder hierarchy, only export the highest definition images, apply a perfect shape mask to icons.
- Make icons from iOS applications or from raw artwork images.
- Generate icons from 16 to 1024 pixels in transparent PNG format.
- Use Style Presets: legacy style with shadows, glows and strokes or iOS 7’s flat style.
- Apply a mask: legacy shape with rounded corners or iOS 7 super-ellipical shape.
- Export icon assets in all the required sizes specified in Apple’s iOS Human Interface Guidelines.
- Automatically find apps from your iTunes Library, use Spotlight or select any folder.
- With Spotlight, Crunch will find any application on your Mac regardless of location.
- Browse all apps and filter them by platform — iPhone, iPad, or Universal.
- Use the Zoom Slider to preview icons up to their original size and reveal all their crazy detail.

They talk about Crunch
Federico Viticci, MacStories – Crunch does one thing very well, and I’m sure it can become an invaluable tool for anyone who designs and develops for iOS and wants to “know more” about apps and how they’re created, at least from a graphical standpoint.
Jacob Penderworth, Mac.AppStorm – 10/10. Extracting the contents of an iOS app can be confusing, but this app makes it effortless.
Tim Van Damme, @2x – A great way to learn how to design for mobile is by examining other apps. Even better is looking at the resource files and how they’ve been sliced.
Crunch requires OS X 10.11 (OS X El Capitan).
