These Icon Packs are Hot: Miu, Belle, and Vee

Admit it, your life has been missing some heat. Icon heat. Icon hotness. The “Hot.” Paris Hilton. Today, we bring it all back with a 3-pack. Yes, these icons are hot.

We were only slightly busy over the last two months covering a couple of devices you may have heard of, the Galaxy S6 (review), S6 Edge (review), and HTC One M9. With two of the three out of the way, we needed a break for a minute, which is code for – we needed to freshin’ them up with an icon pack or two. You see, when we do reviews, we almost always review a phone without a third party launcher, so that we can give you our thoughts on the stock experience a manufacturer intended. Now that reviews for the new Galaxys are out of the way, Nova is on and so are some icon packs.

Here are the three I am currently juggling.  (more…)

Free Icon Pack You Should Download: Ainokea

If you are into the icon world at all (we most definitely are), then you should know the name Alex Miller and his work as “arandompackage.” Over the years, he has made some of the best icon packs of all time, a list that includes Influx, Jive, and Éternel. His latest, Ainokea, will probably be added to the conversation before all is said and done, thanks to its “relaxing” theme, softness to the icons, understated colors, and added bonuses, like custom-made Zooper Pro skins.

Oh, it’s also free. Yep, Alex made Ainokea free last week, so you may as well go download it and take it for a spin.  (more…)

This Icon Pack is Hot: Switch UI

With so much Madness going on in March, we felt now is an appropriate time to bring you a new hot icon pack. This time, we have Switch UI, courtesy of developer Chris Morales.

Featuring a very heavy dose of Material Design and well-placed long shadows, Switch UI is one of our newest favorites in the growing list of icon packs we have applied on our phones. There are multiple versions of Google’s apps, which allows users to choose a color scheme that goes well with their current theme.  (more…)

This Icon Pack is Hot: Ponoco

It’s been hard to get me away from Phix, a material-esque pack we wrote up a couple of weeks ago, but I’d say that Ponoco is in the running. Featuring over 750+ handmade, round icons, 44 cloud-based wallpapers, a pretty app dashboard, and support for your favorite launchers, there are few things not to like here.

Each icon has been crafted to highlight the app identifier set atop rounded bodies that feature a subtle crease through their middle regions. There is a bubbliness to Ponoco that really allows the icons to hover as they sit on your home screen. The colors are soft, muted, and work incredibly well with minimal-retro wallpapers, especially those included in the pack. This is an icon pack that moves far away from the long-shadow and stock Material Design trends.

This Icon Pack is Hot: Devo

With so much excitement taking place today, it’s time for some more hotness. Today, we have an icon pack called Devo, published by developer Stealthychief, available on Google Play for $0.99.

Inside, the pack contains 1900+ HD icons, 8 HD wallpapers, and features support for multiple launchers. The icons themselves are rounded, with a unique darkness to all of them. While they are flat, a few of the icon designs give off an almost 3D look, which helps the contrasting bright colors and dark backgrounds really pop to the eye.  (more…)

This Icon Pack is Hot: Orbit UI

Today’s icon pack isn’t necessarily a new one, but it is an icon pack I recently discovered and have not been able to move away from. It’s called Orbit UI, and it features over 1,000 HD icons, a handful of HD wallpapers, works with all of the top launchers, and supports dynamic calendars for your favorite calendar apps. The icon pack sports a circular design that is both minimalistic and flat. Colors are vibrant, yet soft, which allows them to fit in all sorts of modern themes and wallpapers. Each individual icon has a colored ring around its outside, giving off an “orbiting” feel of depth, hence the name.  (more…)

This Icon Pack is Hot: Vexer

We have your next dose of icon pack hotness ready. Today, take a look at Vexer, the newest work from well-known icon pack maker Samer Zayer.

Featuring a somewhat bubbly, yet professional look, there are 1650+ high quality icons in the pack, plus a ton of wallpapers to access from the cloud. Each icon features a bit of elevation, but no long shadowing. It is actually a nice touch, especially if you are not a fan of long shadows which have become all the rage among icon makers.  (more…)
