Brass - Custom Icons & Widgets Positive Reviews
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
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
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
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
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!.Version: 1.1.23
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
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
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
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
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: 2.1.8
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
Amazing app! ☺️😍🥰This app is amazing 🤩 like even anime?! And they have my hero academia and more! I Rate this app five stars ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ this is my first time but soon I’ll get to know Brass better thank you whoever made Brass it changes me and my iPhone 📱and everyone will probably ask how I did it thanks to this app I feel happy because I used to feel sad but happy now! But money at the end? Idk I do like ish adds..Version: 2.1.8
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 mean, it’s alright.Pros: 1. the options that are on there are clean and nice looking 2. Even tho it is a paid subscription to unlock all features, $2.49 a week is way cheaper than a lot of them for not a huge upfront cost
Cons: 1. I wish I could “favorite “ or save something to find later. 2. There’s honestly not a massive selection 3. Even if you pay, there are still a lot of apps you have to do all the mess in the shortcuts app with..Version: 2.0.11
HelpSo when I first started using this app all the icons were free you didn’t have to pay a thing then you had to watch some short ads which weren’t bad Bc the producers had to make money but now I can’t do any of that without paying for it help I need some icons it got a five Bc it’s an overall good app and this is a very minor and fixable issue.Version: 2.1.8
DOWNLOAD ITThis is the best other apps make u pay for subscription and all that and don’t even allow adds all though this makes u pay it’s also let’s you be able to watch add I highly recommend all apps like this stop making people pay for it I mean it’s just to help ur phone not to pay to use a app.Version: 1.1.23
Money HungrySuper annoying. At first it gives you an option to watch videos to unlock icons, but after a while that goes away leaving only the option to subscribe for almost $3 a week, typical. Also, I’ve tried several time to download the bookmark associated with Safari and it’s the only one that doesn’t work. Stop worrying so much about getting people to subscribe and make sure your app actually works!.Version: 2.0.4
It’s AMAZINGIt doesn’t cost money and you can just watch the ads instead to pay. It’s so much easier to edit your home screen with so many ideas. I wish they could add widgets that come with it. I told all my friends to get it it’s soooo good. Overall it’s the best app i’ve found so far to make your home screen aesthetic..Version: 1.1.23
AMAZING 🤩This app is awesome! You can either pay for it and do it quick and easy or you can watch an ad for all of the icons you want to use! You can also save the widget and the background that they use for the picture! I 100% recommended if you add like me and is to lazy to do it all yourself..Version: 2.1.5
Easy to useWell, it does give you the option to just download the app with new icons and it works very well, but you have to pay like $2 a week for that feature. I ended up doing it manually, took me about 3 hours to give all of my apps new icons, but I LOVE it 😍 definitely worth it.Version: 1.1.11
Great app!Ever since the IOS 14 update, I’ve been testing out different things and I just found this app today and it’s great so far :). It does have a premium version, but it does allow you to watch a video to unlock an icon instead of purchasing, which is nice. I recommend this app if you want to change up your apps, but I’ve only used it for a short time.Version: 1.1.23
Amazing! 🤩I love this app. It works better than ever! A few ads, I mean I can deal with them. Each app icon is perfectly downloadable, super easy to download and the developers give you easy steps to getting each icon! I highly request this app for anyone who’s looking for a homescreen makeover! :).Version: 1.1.28
Take it backThis app is exactly what I needed! I figured out how to install the icons and what I like about them is that when I go on the app it goes right to the app that I want🥰 This is amazing!! Bedsides the fact that you have to watch a video . It’s actually not that bad it’s only 12 seconds!! 💜love this app!! But I really think you should add Christmas 🎄 icons and stuff.Version: 1.1.21
5 STARS!!!!!It is so amazing!!!!! It’s free and when you try to make icons with the shortcuts app it takes to long and it doesn’t work very well. But with this it takes a total of 2 minutes and it doesn’t take you to the shortcuts app before your app. It is awesome!!!!! DEFINITELY recommend!!!!.Version: 2.1.5
OkI really only like one of the themes and that’s the angel one (it’s super cute tho) and i like creating my own widgets but one thing I dislike is that bc it’s shortcuts and not an actual widget, I feel like it takes up a lot of background activity so when you open it at first you have brass ruining in the background. Luckily battery health isn’t that big of a deal for me but for some if maybe a dealbreaker..Version: 2.1.10
Awesome and super fairNot only are there some awesome icons, but it doesn’t MAKE you pay to get the one you want. It just makes you watch some ads, which can be kind of annoying but it’s only 5 seconds each. I think it was really nice of them to make every icon accessible for everybody :).Version: 2.0.11
Love this but...Ok so I LOVE this app! I love all of the icons for your apps and the themes! But I wish that it didnt only let you have like 9 icons and then you had to pay! I wish that they had PLUS ONLY ones (i’m talking about themes) And had some all around just free themes! But I would hope that they wouldn’t make a ton of themes plus only. That’s just my thought! Love this app!.Version: 1.1.32
Amazing appI have been trying to find an app that would let me use all of the icons! I didn’t have to pay for anything. I was ok with watching the 5 second ads to get more the the icons. I am going to LOVE my home screen when I’m done! I would definitely recommend this app..Version: 2.1.3
Sort of helpfulIt's just like the iOS 14 update but it only gives you app covers. It says on the instructions page "open short cuts" so if you're looking for photos for your apps then this is an amazing app if you're looking to bypass the shortcut page when you customize apps in ios14 then you need something else.Version: 1.0
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
Apple apps don’t workHi I love this app but for some reason apple apps don’t work and lead you to shortcuts!! Other wise I recommend this app!.Version: 2.0.10

It’s ok, not too expensiveIt looks okay, I couldn’t try it really as I didn’t want to pay before I’m sure there’s one I like and would keep.
