Icon Pack Studio means never having gaps in your app drawer again

App drawers have always been a mess, and Icon Pack Studio is the closest anyone’s come to fixing it.

Adaptive icons and icon packs try to make our app drawers and docks look uniform, consistent, and beautiful, but they both have their limits. Where they fail, however, Icon Pack Studio not only succeeds but thrives. Whether you just want your apps to have a consistent look and feel or you want to create an icon pack that  [Read More…]

Action Launcher v34 adds new animations and improved adaptive icon support

The v34 update has a new folder animation, better adaptive icon support, and more.

A little less than a month ago, Action Launcher v33 was released with a highlight feature called “AdaptiveZoom.” AdaptiveZoom is a new app-opening animation that gradually fills your phone’s screen with the background color of each app icon, and with v34, there’s a new zoom animation that perfectly compliments it.

Best icon packs for Android

Without icon packs, we are left with chaos.

App icons are different shapes, different sizes, different color schemes and follow different design guidelines. Samsung’s icons look different than Google’s icons, look different from Microsoft’s icons, look different from every other developer’s icons. They are messy. They are awkward.

Why all phone launchers should support icon packs

Icon packs are a wonderfully easy way to jazz up your home screen.

There’s a reason icon packs are supported by most third-party launchers and a growing number of manufacturer launchers. The problem with those manufacturer launchers supporting icon packs is that they’re only supporting their icon packs, but not those sold by Google Play. Samsung’s launcher only supports icon packs from the Samsung Themes store. HTC’s launcher only supports icon packs from the HTC Themes store.

Want the best Galaxy icons on your S8? Try these icon packs!

The icons on the Galaxy S8 are unique… and really mismatched.

The squircle icons with the incomplete wireframe logos are very interesting, and there is a very real appeal to that look… but it doesn’t cover all of the apps that come on the Samsung Galaxy S8 — it doesn’t even cover all the Samsung apps on the Galaxy S8 — and it covers none of the apps that come from Google Play or Samsung Apps. That’s  [Read More…]

The Play Store finally joins the rest of its family with a Play button app icon

App icons don’t change all that often.

It’s understandable. After all, most folks don’t look for the title under an app icon, they just look for the shape or color and tap it. So when app icons change, there’s usually a good reason for it. Google is changing one of the most important app icons on your phones, the Google Play Store, and the reason was spelled out a long time ago. It just begs the question: what the  [Read More…]
