Ready for iPhone 4 – Custom-made for the iPhone 4’s Retina display, Glyphish Pro includes double-sized 2x versions for crisp rendering on high-resolution devices.
We had such a great response from our iPhone icon set, and so many requests for larger formats, that Alex decided awhile back to build them out for Retina display. Each icon is now available at 3 sizes: 64 x 64, 48 x 48, and 24 x 24.
This icon set has been carefully crafted to be pixel perfect on both normal and high resolution iOS devices. The icons contain beautiful shaded portions to give added depth and to highlight icon features. They are meant to go on the tab bar at the bottom of your app.
You can use these icons completely free in your commercial or non-commercial apps as long as you put a link to app-bits somewhere in your application. They are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-No Derivative Works 3.0 License. So please don’t edit the icons in any way without permission.
we’re doing our bit by giving you some free icons to ease your task of making great applications. We’ve based the style of our icons on some of the icons that are contained within the Android SDK as well as screenshots and videos. If you’d like more icons in this style, please feel free to contact us for custom work in this style.
7. Gesturecons – Icons For Multi-Touch Interfaces
Our way of thinking as web/application/software designers is about to be turned upside down. No longer will we design around a mouse/cursor, but will have to think about fingers and gestures when we design the next generation of interface. Gesturecons are here to aid you in that process.
Vector based icons created to aid in the design, development, implementation and promotion of multi-touch interfaces. These icons will aid in the creation of wire-frame documents, digital help files and printed documentation. You can also use Gesturecons inside of your applications in order to demonstrate to users how to complete actions or prompt them to interact with an application when they approach it.
High resolution multi-touch vector icons, scalable and alterable (.pdf, .ai, .eps file types.)
Available For Android, Web OS, iOS, OSX Trackpad, Windows Phone 7, Windows 7, Microsoft Surface, Microsoft Kinect
This Free Icon Pack is for use in your personal and commercial projects, and can be used without attribution. It may not be redistributed.
