The Evolution of Rogue Amoeba App Icons

Rogue Amoeba has posted a fun timeline showing how its app icons have evolved over the years. Some changes reflect broad design trends in the Mac industry, while others may result from a new designer’s vision. The post includes commentary from one of Rogue Amoeba’s designers and a visualization of how icons have grown over the years—I’d never considered that a modern 1024×1024 icon is vastly larger than the original Mac’s 512×342 screen.

  1. I ended up buying (finally…) the Audio Hijack and Loopback bundle.

  2. I’ve used Airfoil, Audio Hijack, Fission, and SoundSource for years and it is interesting that only Fission’s icon has changed very little.

  3. I’ve used Airfoil for a while but gave up on it. Soundsource and Piezo are used both by my wife and I, I suspect I’ll migrate to Audio Hijack now for recording.
