"Excellent icon utility program"

December 11, 2015  |  By LeroD EVE

2015-12-11 00:19:20  |  By LeroD EVE

 |  Version: IcoFX 2.5

Pros

Advanced editing features.
Can create icon libraries (*.ico) which for me was very important.
Small footprint and with all the complexity, it seems to be very light on resources and space it takes.
No 'bloat-ware' included in the installation (downloaded from the company's website).

Cons

If you don't have much experience with image editing software. it could be intimidating at first. But there is a 'splash screen' that opens when you run the program which helps a lot as it gives you short cuts to the most common actions.

Summary

After reading the above review I was a bit concerned, but I still looked into it.
First I downloaded the software from the company's website, and I didn't see any nefarious Terms and Conditions, no viruses and none of the PUP included with other free-ware software downloads.
Also, I noticed that the payment can be made through PayPall which adds a layer of security and that is good enough for me.
I had a couple questions regarding the compatibility with Win-10 and the difference between the standard and portable installation. I sent an e-mail to office@icofx.ro and to my surprise I received the answer in a few hours.

The program itself seems to have everything I wanted and some more.
The window layout is pretty much standard, so if you have used any image editing software you should be already pretty familiar with the controls, where they are and what they do.
See the notes I made in the "Pros" section for other details.
Another nice touch is that from the Help menu you can access directly a Forum (so another way to communicate with the programmers directly) and a link to Tutorials.

Considering the limited (good) options available from the free programs, and the high price of those that are 'established' names, I think IcoFX fits nicely in between with a reasonable price, specially for home users.
Heck... even I can afford it.

"A free trial for spyware/malware?!?"

Pros

I did not even install the software. I stopped after I read their Privacy Policy!!!

Cons

READ THEIR PRIVACY POLICY CAREFULLY! It was the part about "our software will be collecting your personal information from your computer" and "do not attempt to use a malware detection routine on this software" that alarmed me. The company is located in Europe. How would the authorities prosecute them if they did something underhanded? What do they want with my personal information anyway? I'll pay for something off the shelf at Best Buy b/c this product is NOT worth it! And it's NOT free. I think that's their strategy to get it installed on as many machines as possible.
