Brass - Custom Icons & Widgets Positive Reviews
AMAZING APP!!! RECOMMEND IT 100%!!!I wanna say, out of all the apps I’ve tried, this one is the best. It has amazing themes and designs and it doesn’t even require a subscription to access some of the better looking themes. In other apps I’ve tried, they have all the good themes behind a subscription fee which is absolutely ridiculous for some icons. There is one thing to note, you do have to watch a 15 second AD to unlock each icon and I had 60 icons so if you time it, it’ll take you approximately 15 minutes to download them all. Which isn’t bad for a free app, I was just watching Netflix on my laptop while downloading the icons (multitasking).
Once you do download all the icons, click continue and download them, then click the ok and confirm buttons. After that, you just go to settings and click on profiles and install it from there and all of the icons will be on you’re Home Screen at once. The widgets will also be downloaded. However, you’ll have to go back to the theme in the app again to download the wallpaper but that takes a few seconds.
Overall, I highly recommend this theme app above all others, if you have a problem with this (FREE) app then you’re nuts, but that’s my opinion. Hope you guys enjoy!.Version: 2.1.41
YOU GUYS ARE WRONG, THIS IS A GOOD APOSo this is for everyone who thinks that it only goes in your camera roll! Or it won’t work. Most of them are supposed to be downloaded through the settings. The rest are in the camera roll which you have to add in Shortcuts and nothing else. Those are because they weren’t added to the ones that need downloading. So stop hating on this app! It’s great and it works! Just make sure that all of them have to be downloaded and you don’t have to watch the ads to unlock them to use them. Oh yeah, about the ads. If it shows you the screen where you can pay there is a fine print button where you can go on without paying with ads. You can still you the app but tap on the ones you want to use and press continue, you will have to watch ads to unlock every single one you picked. It was annoying for me because I have a 9 year old daughter who installed this with my permission and had to watch ads for every single one. Still great and works, just too many ads of you don’t pay..Version: 2.1.12
So glad I found this but one problemI’m so glad I found this app, I’ve been looking for an app that I can change the app logo and other stuff that actually lets you do it for free for sooo long. I don’t mind the ads or that I have to watch them one by one, the only problem I have is that I don’t get all the app logos downloaded, even when I’ve watched the ad for it. Example: I’d click all the new logos I’d want for my apps, then watch all the adds for them, but I won’t get the Disney+ one or any others, but I will get some. And yes I have done the manual one to but I still don’t get Disney+, calculator, or clock. Other than that one problem the app is amazing and I highly recommend..Version: 2.1.40
Good but....Ok so this app is nice I really like how you can choose which apps you want to be on your Home Screen. This app is also nice because it has way more apps that people need that aren’t on any of the other places. The only really annoying thing is you have to watch an add for each app you want to unlock if you don’t want to subscribe or pay money. I personally think that 1 add should unlock at least up to 3 apps instead of having to watch one for each and every app. The other thing that is annoying is that no where in the app does it say if you delete the profiles from settings you will then proceed to delete all of your icons you just set up. I literally just did that and I was honestly really annoyed by that. So a friendly recommendation I have is to have 1 add unlock up to 3 apps and to specify in big bold letters at the beginning of the process that deleting the profiles will delete the icons. Other than that I really like the app with a lot of really cool themes and I will definitely continue to use this app in the future..Version: 2.1.41
Pretty GoodI'd say this app is overall pretty good. It's definitely better than the other apps because it let's you do that what I know of all of then for free. However, if you don't want to pay it makes you watch an app for EVERY SINGLE ICON. And on top of that it only let's you do five at a time, not that you can't do them all, but it takes longer that way, and if you accidentally close the app you have to be able to find it again to do the rest. AND if you accidentally swipe down off the ad icon page you lose all the progress you did with watching ads for the apps. But another good thing is if you download the profile thing it automatically puts all five icons on your home screen and already working. Although the last five apps didn't let me for some reason, so I did it manually. But in the end it looks amazing and I'd say it's definitely worth it..Version: 2.1.34
BEST Icons app... ishSeriously... You can do it all for free and add your own sets and there are so many choices because people add their own! This is the only one i would ever spend money on.
I am noticing some drawbacks as I use this app more.
- If you don’t buy premium you have to watch an ad PER ICON you download, which would make sense for the ones the app creators made and that’s fine, idc that much about ads. but... not for ones that other people have uploaded, and an ad an icon is overboard. They’re basically profiting off of other people’s work ? People give permission for them to be public, but it just doesn’t feel right still.
-The app makes it super easy for you by doing the work & putting the icons as shortcuts for whichever apps you assign them. But.... There’s no way for you to have the any of images downloaded if you change your mind or want to do it yourself. You’d have to start over which is super annoying. I’m kinda stuck now because I want to use custom pictures for some of my apps but also overlay icons on the pictures so I can know what the app is, and delete the app titles below them (it feels cleaner)
But I’m stuck because I have no idea how to do that now without just not using any of this theme..Version: 2.1.5
Great but...So this app is awesome if you want to find easy ideas and icons to put on your Home Screen for iOS 14. It shows you specifically with step by step instructions how to make the icon for your app through shortcuts. But k downloaded it for the ease of bypassing shortcuts and was disappointed to find that you had to pay in order to do this. Me, being a teenager with no job and no way to get money, I wasn’t very happy. But hey it’s great if you’re willing to pay and can still offer amazing resources if you’re fine with opening shortcuts every time you go to open an app..Version: 1.1.6
Its an ok appOk, so i got this app at first thinking oh its #2 for graphic and stuff( it was 2 when i got it) Then i download it and go to look for the icons and theme i like and OMG SO PRETTY and i go to download my fav one and I HAD TO MANUALLY DOWNLOAD ALL THE APPS WITH ADDS IF I DIDNT WANNA PAY. I did it anyways. So then i do all the app icons and i had them for about maybe around a week now... and when i went to open an app it closed the app right away!!! So i restart my phone, go to settings, just let my phone shut off for a little but none of that seemed to work so i went through all the apps that i hadn’t had for a while and the only app i had recently got is Brass. I deleted it hoping that it wasn’t the problem but it was, my apps opened fine right after.....Version: 2.1.37
Have Had it One Day and Love it!I’ve had the app for one day and I love it. I changed the icons for my most used apps and put them on my Home Screen with my Pinterest widget and my own background and it’s so cute!!! They have different themes as well so you can choose from those and each theme has a few options to choose from! I picked the first fall option and used my own white pumpkin background photo.
The only thing I didn’t like is that for each time you change your icon, you have to watch a 30sec ad with the free version and when I tried to change the app that one of the icons opened, it glitched the app for a few seconds and then everything was fine!.Version: 1.1.28
DisappointingThis app has a lot of potential. I loved the designs they have. However, you must purchase or watch ads to design the logos of more than 3 of them. I purchased a subscription, but was disappointed to learn that not all apps have a design, only basic ones. Now my timeline looks only half pretty lol. I submitted request for them to include more apps designs. However, I received emails saying failure domain, and that the request did not go through (basically they won’t know which apps I requested for them to have a design). If I could get my money back, I’d be happy. Shame there wasn’t a disclaimer before beginning to customize each app that way I would’ve known from the beginning 😏.Version: 1.1.27
LOVE ITAmazing app with so many different options. When I First download this app you had to download different shortcuts and bookmarks for almost all apps. Now it seems you go directly to the non-apple apps which is amazing! I was waiting for someone to do this already! Now if only the apple apps could all be the same without any shortcuts that would be amazing! Also if you can get notifications shown on the app like the original apps that would be really nice. It’s almost there, just if these few changes would be possible!.Version: 2.0.7
BEST APP FOR WIDGETSOut of the what seems like millions of apps I’ve downloaded in efforts to make an “aesthetic” Home Screen they have all had some glitch in them that makes it nearly impossible to even load one widget onto the screen, and when you finally do it’s not even the right picture, but this app is PHENOMENAL it’s so simple and self explanatory to use. Unlike all the other confusing apps. This app is perfect. You can have more than one widget at a time any shape or size. Its absolutely incredible and FREE. Definitely recommend..Version: 1.1.23
Great App, Easy To Use, But Missing Many App Icons.I just download this app and paid for the annual subscription. This app works great and making use of the iOS Profile feature to expedite the setup is awesome! Great job developers!
However, one thing I did notice is that there are a lot of icons missing (e.g. neon and minimal themes are what I've tried).
Personally, I just went through and submitted a missing icon request for about 50 icons that I would need to complete my homescreen how I had it previously.
I'm hopeful that the app developers are responsive and will push out an update that includes these requested icons for me soon, so I can continue using this app moving forward 😁
Overall, if your looking for an app to customize your icons, widgets, and wallpaper - I'd say this app is for you. It's easy to use and saves a ton of time when compared to manually creating all of the icons the traditional way (through its use of iOS profiles).
Hope this helps!.Version: 2.1.17
Not exactly the quality one would expect...This is not like the themes from jailbreaking days.
The icons that Brass has designed are nice looking, but it does not replace the stock icons - but rather uses Shortcuts to access the apps. This creates a delay: you click on a redesigned Brass app, then it cycles through Shortcuts and then leads you to the actual app. This is kind of annoying and slow. In jail breaking days, the icons just got replaced with different images but the function remained as a way to directly access the app.
The amount of icons available is woefully small. No Wallet, Notes, Skype, Messenger (!!!), Google Translate...
Oh and the Telegram icon breaks Telegram. Click on it and it comes up frozen.
Also, and this is big: These icons don’t show notifications!!! No badges! This means that unless you actually open the app, you won’t know if you have a message waiting (FB, WhatsApp, Message, Telegram, IG, etc.) That’s kind of bad for social media apps.
Glad this one was free. It should be much better if it’s a paid app..Version: 2.0.5
I don’t really review anything but...My boyfriend saw how much I wanted to make my phone homescreen look cute. I used apps like Widgetsmith, but could never find something to compliment it. I gave up lol, but he showed me this app! It’s easy to do. I see some comments saying that they hate that it’s not free, but you can literally watch an ad real quick to download each icon. Time consuming, but worth it. My homescreen looks too cute now 🥺.
Great app!.Version: 1.1.28
BrassI found Brass extremely helpful! I tried finding themes for my home screen on Pinterest and google, but I could never seem to find something I liked. With Brass I scrolled through the first row and found a theme I loved! The only thing that was not perfect is all the ads this app comes with!☹️Evertime I tried to get a new cover for an app I had to watch a 20 second ad! COME ON! If you want no ads you have to pay a fee. I don’t know about you but I can’t sit around all day watching a bunch of ads. I have this app 3 STARS and that’s all it’s going to get!!!!!!!😡😡😡😡😡😡☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️🙄🙄🙄😒😒😒😠😠😠😑😑😑.Version: 2.1.17
Continue with FREE WITH ADS ....WHERE???I guess you mean continue free so you can look at the site because you sure can’t get anything! It’s ridiculous how greedy all of you app developers have gotten! First, there were outrageous overpriced yearly subscription fees, when they weren’t enough the charges moved to monthly and now you are charging weekly! Which in some cases adds up in the hundreds of dollars for apps that aren’t even maintained or updated properly and new content is not added regularly.
Why can’t the developers just have a one time lifetime fee like these other apps are doing?.Version: 2.1.14
Best app for customizable widgets but does have a bugYou can choose your own photo for your widgets and choose different styles to make them, but today I tried to add a widget to my home screen and one of my widgets I had previously placed turned black. I tried to unadd and readd the widget, but more of my widgets turned black. i’m not sure what happened, but I even made new ones and the same thing happened. Otherwise it’s a wonderful app. Custom apps are easy to install and don’t necessarily require you to add them manually through shortcuts..Version: 2.1.40
Decent but needs workThis app has a lot of potential. It only costs about $2 for a week subscription (but you only need one day to download the apps you want) and there’s loads of themes to choose from. The variety is what really stood out to me compared to other similar apps. However, there’s not many app icon options. There’s only the core apps such as camera, messages, phone, and photos. There’s no option to download app icons for apps such as Twitter or google calendar. So if you’re looking for anything other than the 20 core apps the iPhone comes pre-downloded with, this is not your app..Version: 2.1.12
It’s really goodThis is a really good app. I got it before it had all the ads as soon as you opened the app up, so I’m not a big fan of that, but I am a big fan of the themes. The only problem I have is I can’t like any of the themes for me to use. I’d really like to do so because there are some I want to use when I’m done with another theme but can’t because I have to go and find them and I eventually lose them. So can we please get something to save some of our favorite themes in the next update please????.Version: 2.1.14
It’s a cool idea but-I love the idea of this and all the varieties of styles, but it’s very annoying how you have to purchase in order to all of these. I’ve checked almost all of these and every one says you have to buy it. I know that this app needs to make money in some way but at least make some free jeez.
EDIT: So I do know you CAN watch ads for each app to get them, but when I click “continue with free ads” it just sends me back without letting me do that. Please fix this because this app has great potential but there are some major bugs with it..Version: 2.1.8
The app is greatThe app overall is great most apps take you to the shortcut app then to the actual app. That’s not the case for this one just automatically takes you to the app. There is one minor problem I’m trying to change the icon for the phone app but it just doesn’t show. If this problem was fixed that be great, I would definitely recommend this app to my friends..Version: 2.1.11
Enjoy app but needs a few thingsI like this app and it’s many options. However, because there are so many options it gets kind of annoying having to scroll through the list. I think this app would benefit from either a search option or more categories; or both. It also needs an option for saving favorites so you can easily access them later..Version: 2.1.12
Notification IconSo overall the app is pretty easy to use if you follow the instructions correctly. Unfortunately all of my apps don’t have icons that I can switch it to so that’s kind of annoying. The part that I’m having the most trouble with is receiving notifications on certain apps. I haven’t been able to figure out(not sure if there’s even a way to do it) how to change the setting so I receive notifications for example text messages. Is there something that I’m missing?.Version: 2.1.11
OhSo I never write reviews well I had to today! So I was looking at the reviews and I thought ok this app might not be to bad well then think again I get into the app and get all of my app icons ready and they don’t have some of the basic icons that they should have anyway I click the done button and it says some of the icons you have to buy them like FaceTime and things like that so if you want to buy this then you will love this app but if you don’t don’t buy it and the icons were nice it was all good but that.Version: 2.1.14
The best widgets and home screen editing app i’ve ever come acrossWhile the ads do seem to get a little frustrating, it’s extremely worth it!! this app alone just gave my whole home screen a glow up, and it has a ton of themes, and WITH the widgets and app icons already included in it!! i would definitely recommend this for the new apple update!!.Version: 1.1.21
I think it’s a bug, but I don’t know.I got this app after seeing a friend use it, and I liked it as he was able to make his screen color coordinated with ease. So I got the app, picked out the app covers, and it won’t let me watch ads to get the icons. It says that I have used all of my free packs for the day, but I still haven’t been able to cover one. Overall, I think that it’s a great app if you can get it to work, but it is a little annoying to work with..Version: 2.0.11
It’s good, butI give this a 3 star because there are a lot of themes you can choose from. Plus you can customize icons which is awesome. Although, not all of my icons are showing up on my Home Screen. I have tried deleting and re adding, I have tried adding but in smaller quantities, and some icons just won’t show up. Pretty disappointed about that or else I would have just gotten a week to see how I liked it, but didn’t give an option in app which also is disappointing..Version: 2.1.41
DisappointedI loved the idea of this and finally being able to spruce up my iPhone. However, I assumed (my bad) that it replaced existing icons but it doesn’t, it creates entirely new ones bookmarked with the corresponding website. So you have to go through and swap them out. Ok fine. The biggest disappointment was that they don’t have any notifications at all. Those still show up on the original icon now shuffled to the back page of my Home Screen. So, back to the original icons..Version: 2.0.10
Needs a saving systemI LOVE this. This app allows me to customize my phone on a whole new level. I see so many different themes that I really like but I have no way to save them for later aside from straight up downloading them. I think an amazing addition would be a way to save your “Liked” themes so you can go back and look specifically at those themes.Version: 2.1.32
I like itSo far I like the app. It does make it more simple to have an aesthetically pleasing icon and not have a shortcut in the background. I do like the fact that they give you options if you want to pay for it or just watch a video, however I do feel like it’s a bit excessive. On the other hand I get it, they gotta make the money either through ads or subscriptions.
Anyway, good quality. Exactly what I was looking for!.Version: 1.1.21
I like itThe app is good for spicing up your all’s and Home Screen but if you don’t pay you have to watch a bunch of ads and if you accidentally press something you have to start the process all over again and some of the short cuts glitch so you have to again repeat the process but other than those things it’s a fine app to use it you have the time to watch all the ads.Version: 2.1.21
I love this appThe only downside is that you cant really pick an icon to your desire. Fro example i want a new genshin icon, i cant really pick an icon that looks like genshin icon, i instead have to use the pre made icons that doesnt resemble genshin..Version: 2.0.5
Cool appI like it so far 👍.Version: 2.1.42

Not too badIt works you just have to watch an add for each Icon, I like that you can still use the app without paying but there’s too many adds. I wish they made it 1 add for like 3 icons so your not changing your phone theme for hours..Version: 2.1.42
