Default [Q] How do I scale icons to preserve quality?

I found a set of free icons on the web but they are extremely small. I need to make them bigger so they can be viewed in my app, but the problem is that they become blurry when I enlarge them.

How do I make icons bigger but preserve quality? I know it's possible since this icon set is very popular and used in many apps.

If you click on the download button, you will also get svg files.
They are vector graphics and therefore scaleable. Just convert them to png or whatever.

You can also try TinyPng to reduce the file sizes w/o affecting quality.
