There are some key things about developing logos for apps! and this is one of my favorite blogs on this very subject.

Your app logo is the impression you give people of your app the first time they find it, and every time they launch it so check out How to make an app logo that doesn’t suck from http://dwcares.com/one-does-not-simply-app-logo/ In this post, the author walks you through creating an app logo from beginning to end for a fictional app.

So how does the UWP Tile Generator work.

Simply right click on a square png and select Generate UWP Tiles.

Within seconds you’ll have all the recommended tile sizes and what’s more the extension will also update your package manifest so you don’t have to.

This extension is designed to save time as well as adhere to the Windows 10 tile guidelines found here: http://bit.ly/1KeAfAY.

    I’d rather this be a separate application than a vsix since I don’t want it integrated into VS – the images only need to be generated once. Also, for the Badge logo, needed are 30×30, 36×36, 96×96.
