Aviate Launcher Now Supports Custom Icon Packs

aviate launcher android

Icon packs are one of the reasons we continue to love Android, so it was a bit disheartening when the contextual Aviate launcher released without support for them. Now all of that has been remedied, with Aviate bringing to the table support for existing icon packs for popular launchers in the latest update.

To enable a custom icon pack, all you have to do is swipe into the Spaces menu through Aviate, and then jump into Settings. There you will find a “Set Icon Pack” button which will allow you to choose your favorite icon pack (we’re currently digging Lumos, Cryten, Influx, and these) to customize your home screen.

It’s mentioned in the Aviate blog post that existing icon packs for ADW, Apex, and Nova Launcher are supported, so the icon packs mentioned above should work just fine.

This is a pretty major enhancement for the launcher, but the lack of icon pack support from earlier can be forgiven considering the app is still in beta. Needless to say, go give version 1.0.75 a shot.

    If anyone still has any codes left could you possibly send me one? (Jokerized@gmail.com)

  • Chris VanAnden

    It’s a nice and welcomed addition. It’ll be nice when the Icon Packs add Aviate to a supported list so I can actually select the icons I want it to display though. I have the Lumos icon pack, but it just defaults to whatever it wants to show on my phone.

    I have 2 invites left. First two that want it can have it. Just post your e-mail.

  • Xsoldier2000

          Thank you so much…I was tempted to reject it because of the ‘Yankeefan’ email handle (as I’m a die hard Red Sox fan) but realized I don’t want to be one of THOSE guys… thanks a lot again!

          • Opinionated_In_Bangor

            I actually live in the North East myself. My email causes that reaction quite a bit.

          Got it! Thank you!

  • Kevin

    That’s a nice looking phone you got there. :)

  • calculatorwatch

    Anyone else tried Lightning Launcher? The customization options are clunky as heck but you can do some pretty awesome stuff with it. Plus it runs well even on the old GNex.

  • ronyc

    please post your
    email….

  • Gus Lipkin

    I have 3 invites. Who wants? Reply with your email.

  • ChristianPasquariello

    It even includes a built in alarm to notify you when it’s time to change your tampon.

  • Nikuliai

    Moto’s launcher should be able to support custom icons too :B

  • Brandon Barlow

    Here is a hint for my fellow aviate users. If you want folders, install App category. You can add a folder to the desktop, reboot your phone and its now listed in your apps. Same thing goes with the app auto app category. Finally if you want your folders where your photoswidgets are, use auto App organizer free. Happy folder creating!

    • Gus Lipkin

      Would you be able to send me an invite?

      • Brandon Barlow

        Only if you come back here and share at least 2 of your 5 invites here. I only have 1 left. What’s your email address?

        • Gus Lipkin

          I was planning on sharing them.

  • Swoggler

    I need a code please.

  • miri

    Support wallpapers and replacing all stock widgets then we’ll talk.

  • ronyc

    Hey guys, I have only used one invite to dl aviate to my phone, so I still have the remaining. Let me know….

    • Gus Lipkin

      send me one please

    • Omi

      please share one sohandaumesh@gmail.com

    • Omi

      hey, it gives the error as : Invalid code. Please confirm that the code sent is from the primary account. I guess the code needs to be sent using aviate UI

  • Raikou

    Is that Jellybean you got there?

  • Mike Zahorchak

    Anyone got a code they can send me please?

  • ChuckDz3

    This is definitely a step in the right direction, although since it’s still under beta it could use some more fine tuning. The custom icons you can set look terrible and grainy.

    • Sam Lin

      Agreed. I applied the Lumos icon pack, but all the icons definitely look really grainy. It’s pretty much the one thing keeping me from using Aviate as a replacement for Nova.

  • matt

    Can you assign custom icons to though?

  • Rich Wentz

    can anyone send me a code :)

    • Creamsteve

      Did you get one yet?

      • Rich Wentz

        I would really appreciate one

          • Rich Wentz

            Awesome man, thanks!

          • Jokerized1 .

            can I have one also ?

  • StankyChikin
