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…)
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…)
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.
Check it out! (more…)
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…)
We know a few folks around the US are freezing their butts off this winter, so we think it is time to keep the hotness coming. This time, we have an icon pack called Phix, focused heavily on following Google’s own guidelines in Material Design. (more…)
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…)
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…)
Ready for your next icon pack? Moko is a serious contender, with its bubbly persona, shadows, attention to detail, and massive list of icons.
The pack features 2300+ Material Design-like icons and colors that the developer has given a “flat and vivid touch” to. They come off bright and refreshing to me, with a touch of dimension, but hey, “flat and vivid” works too. That Material approach carries through to the companion app which is filled with rippling effects, moving parts, and one of the better overall designs I have seen in an icon pack to date. (more…)
