Thanks to the nice guys at Syncfustion, you may now create free great looking icons for your applications using their Metro Studio app.
You may download Metro Studio at: http://www.syncfusion.com/downloads/metrostudio

Thanks. But: Metro style icons. Yuk. I didn't know they were THAT ugly (no offense to the designers, I'm sure they did their best, that's just Metro). I will certainly not use them in my apps.

Thanks for the link.

Can you blame him though? ;-)
I kind of like the Metro look though and I am sure after a few tweaks they will come up with something that looks nice (anything is better than the standard Windows look)..
Put me down as a "me too" for the link..

Not quite. I use WinXP and Win7 too and am fine with them - but these Metro icons ARE butt ugly.

And for the record: I also am not enthused by Lion and Mountain Lion - give me back my colour icons!

So there. :mrgreen:

seriously, have you guys even bothered to download the app and test it ?
What's ugly? The square background? You can make the background transparent and keep only the base icon.
I personally love the app and appreciate that is free and the resulted icons can be used in any type of application.

Have I talked about the app??? The app is fine, the icons are not. Please read before you make a comment.

And the icons are ugly even without a coloured background. I certainly want nicer icons in my apps.

No, the download requires registration. I just take icons from here: http://openiconlibrary.sourceforge.net/

Thanks for sharing the links. I'm not real fond of the metro icons but the editor in my opinion is pretty nice. It may come in handy some day.

Umm... has anyone actually run the app?

The APP is metro style - not necessarily the icons it generates!
They have a request feature if you cant find an icon you are after and they update also.

As for the icons links there are a gazillions free full color icons of all sizes - just Google it!

Umm... yea. :D

I didn't see anything other than metro style options, but I didn't look long.
I was at work and didn't have a lot of time.
I will download it at home this weekend and test it some more.

Thanks for pointing that out.
