Get iOS icons. Thanks to Brett Terpstra.
# Adapted from Brett Terpstra script: http://brettterpstra.com/2013/04/28/instantly-grab-a-high-res-icon-for-any-ios-app/
# Gets the 1024px version of an app icon and applies a rounded mask. The result is displayed in Pythonista's console, you can tap and hold to save or copy it.
# You may find odd result: try searching for both device categories.
# If you find any bug, you can find me @silouane20 on Twitter.
