Last week I posted a short video on my Youtube channel detailing my 5 favorite icon packs for Android. The video was well received so I thought I’d bring the series to HOA in written form. Go ahead and check out the video below, and then read my detailed thoughts on each pack after the break!
1.) Yitax– Vertumus is a big name in custom icons and it’s easy to see why. His icon packs always bring an elegant theme and something different to the table. In addition to his excellent icons, there is always an excellent selection of wallpapers in each of his icon packs. On top of all that, Vertumus updates his icon packs weekly on the Play Store and responds well to requests. The ability to get your missing icons themed is a big plus when using a custom pack.
2.) Crispy Icon Pack– This is a new icon pack I just picked up, but I’m really loving the overall style. The theming on each icon is something unique that I haven’t seen in the custom icon game before. Included in this pack you also have a nice selection of flat wallpapers that offer a nice contrast to the colorful theme. I’m not sure about regular updates from this developer yet, but I’ll definitely update the progress in that area in my next icon pack video/article.
3.) Immaterialis Icon Pack– If boxy icons, or rounded squares are more of your thing, this is definitely a great icon pack to check out. Developer sikebo is another respected name in icon packs and always delivers with updates and user requests on a regular basis. Definitely check out the “Google” colored wallpapers, which feature the various google stock apps set against a monochrome background of your choice!
4.) Fresh Icon Pack– Another regular icon pack developer, Stealthychief brings you a fresh take on the material design inspiration from Google. The wallpapers in this pack have received lots of comments in my videos on the Moto X Pure Edition, especially the “Android Moon” and “Android Peace” wallpapers.
5.) Retorika Icon Pack– This more pastel take on material design from sikebo is probably my favorite icon pack at the moment. There are several vector wallpapers that add a beautiful backdrop for this excellent pack!
Hopefully everyone finds something to like from this pack. I’ll be back next month with another set of sweet icon packs!
