Another week, another icon pack that is hot enough to share. Called Trim’d, you are looking at a pack that ditches the long-shadow in favor of a glass-like overlay, with a Material-ish color palette, and a prismatic effect. The icons are square with semi-round corners, which is a shape we see often, yet something strikes me as being unique here. Trim’d is easily one of the more refreshing icon sets we have seen in a while. (more…)
In the past, we have taken in icon pack submissions from you, compiled the best into a single post and then shared in an ongoing “5 Fresh” series. Today, we are doing away with the “5 Fresh” series, so that we can get you awesome icon packs to consider on a much more frequent basis. It’s not that we didn’t love putting together those lists, it’s just that there are so many good icon packs out there that need to be shared while they are hot, not a couple of months down the road when we find time to put together five of them. So, enter the “This Icon Pack is Hot” feature that we will attempt to post much more regularly to get you the goods quicker than anybody.
Maybe somewhat surprisingly, Action Launcher 3, which was published last week, did not come with custom 3rd party icon pack support. Thanks to an update, which is now available through Google Play, users can now attach their very own icon packs to the launcher, as well as customize individual icons at their own discretion. (more…)
The kovdev team is back again with another icon pack, this time tackling their vision for what round icons should be. If you did not already know, kovdev is headed by Dave Kover, who you might catch around the DL sphere from time to time. He has been pumping out quality icon packs and themes on Android for quite some time, such as Nox and Stark, so we always get a little giddy when he releases new work. (more…)
Within days of posting our last “5 fresh icon packs” feature, another 10 or so quickly popped up on our radar to be featured in the next round-up. I feel like I say this almost every time, but icon designers just keep getting better and better even though you would figure that ideas from this scene would plateau or stall for a while. Thankfully, that hasn’t even come close to happening, which is evidenced by the five packs we have to feature today.
We have packs that carry a vintage vibe, others that put a better spin on Apple’s flat iOS theme, and even one that puts to use the floating circle button from Google’s Material Design. If you can’t find a pack in this round-up to slap on your phone, then I’m not sure you have any taste. (more…)
After a couple of month hiatus from the world of icon packs, we are back with another set of 5 fresh. There are probably more than five that we could cover today, but pay day isn’t until Friday, so we don’t want to overwhelm all of you just yet.
We keep thinking that icon designers are going to run out of ideas or that we will get bored with the trends, yet here we are with another set that we can’t possibly pick a favorite from. There are round icons in this five, square ones, others with long shadows, and some with clear parts. Most have HD wallpapers to match their themes, and all are incredibly well designed.
Having received quite a few requests for this post, here is your chance to show off your beautiful home screens to our community. Home screens can be an ever-evolving feature of your smartphone, and with new icon packs and wallpapers being released daily, there is no doubt that your device’s look has changed since the last time we did this in February.
For those new to this concept, this is how it works. Setup your home screen the way you like it, grab a screenshot of it (Power+Volume Down on most phones, Home+Volume Down on Samsung phones), and then upload it through Disqus (comments) along with a description of your apps, launcher, wallpaper, and clock.
