I will show you how to load your newly designed icons onto an iOS device
so you can see what it will look like on the home screen. This is not just an image superimposed on a static background. Your iOS device will load the icon and you can scroll through your home screen just like a regular app. In other words, it is the actual app icon on your device
. The best part is that you don't need a Mac or XCode! You can even have clients load the icon you're designing on their own device
so they can preview how it will actually look when their app is live. Don't worry, it's easy to do... even for tech challenged clients! A great "service" you can offer that will differentiate you from other designers and developers! About The Instructor
