- Import images to apply them as icons
- Save different setup configurations to quickly change your styles.

* System apps do not open without the shortcuts app because of operating system limitations. Notification badges are also unavailable for this same reason.

Almost greatLove how the app makes it relatively easy to create a home scree aesthetic. I’ve tried a bunch of different apps and find this one to be the most intuitive, tons of customization but not overly complex, and actually works with the shortcut going straight to the app. You need to be somewhat techy to figure out how it all works but definitely worth learning since once you figure out it is super easy.
A few improvements and this would be perfect: 1) fix transparent and transparent blur background options - right now they don’t work well on photo backgrounds. 2) add ability to resize glyphs. 3) add ability to recolor images when you upload a PNG file (since the glyph library isn’t a huge I rely on other apps / ways to get certain icons). 4) add widget functionality (or better explain how to sync with widget apps like Launcher 5) love how you can apply one icon’s style to all icons, but wish you also had a paste option for when you want to have different color rows or a monochromatic scheme.Version: 1.2
Great Idea. Needs one thingSolid app. Does what it says. My only issue is, it should be able to take the bundleid of an icon and automatically assign it. It says it does common apps but even those few were wrong. Instead of having to import 200+ icons and find every app, since the icons are named the bundleID, this app should be able to do this automatically, even shortcuts that people have built can already do this..Version: 1.1
Transparent icon background not working!I updated my iPhone 11 today from iOS 14.0 to iOS 14.3, specifically for this app, after watching others use it without shortcuts and using transparent icon backgrounds. I followed a video tutorial of it working for someone else on the same iOS and same iPhone model. Unfortunately, with following step-by-step, it doesn’t work for me.
Even with setting my icon background to transparent and the preview screen showing them as transparent, upon exporting the icons to my device, whatever color the wallpaper background is set to (white, black, yellow, blue—it doesn’t matter), that color transfers with the icon as its background.
I want a transparent icon background, not a forced background color from whatever color is set as the wallpaper background, due to not being able to set the wallpaper background to transparent.
Plus sign for new screen > Icons > Plus sign
Set Name, Action, and Glyph Image
Glyph Color > Any color > Opacity 0%
Background Type > Transparent
*icon shows with transparent background*
Back to main screen setup
Under background, its set to solid. Whatever color I pick shouldn’t matter because I’m not exporting the wallpaper, but I’ve tried all kinds of colors. Whatever color is set here becomes the background to my icons. They don’t have transparent backgrounds, despite being set to.
It works for others, so I don’t understand why it’s not working for me..Version: 1.1.1
Actually AmazingHonestly I had low expectations going into this, but I really can’t imagine this app being any better, except for a few UI adjustments it’s almost perfect. The true functionality of this app is actually amazing. It’s easily a million times better than using the iOS shortcuts app, it’s faster to use and the there’s no animation when launching apps. Pretty perfect if you ask me. (It’s doesn’t work perfectly with some iOS stock apps like FaceTime but idk if there’s anything the app developers can do to get around that. It seems to be a restriction imposed by Apple),.Version: 1.1
Amazing functionality! An instant buy 🙏🏻This app has all the functionality you could want in a custom icon themer, and more! It takes advantage of lots of fantastic system APIs like the color picker, Files app, and drag and drop; the use of drag and drop is extensive and very natural. The ability to save different home screen configurations is very well done and extremely clever. The developer was even kind enough to bring almost all the major features to us for free!
Definitely give this app a try and go support this developer’s great work 👍🏻.Version: 1.0
Something went wrongAll in all, this app is amazing. It’s the best icon customizer app i’ve ever used, and yesterday it was working just fine. However, today when I tried to download my app profiles, when redirected to safari it said that they were “corrupted” and “bad profiles” and could be read. I tried several more times, trying everything I could, but nothing worked. So now i’m left wondering, what went wrong, and how do I fix it?.Version: 1.2
Pretty good except for transparent backgroundsLove how easy it is to switch everything over, this app is definitely the best I’ve found for this. However, if the developer is reading this, I’d like to comment that the transparent app icons (by setting the background in the app, then setting it in the phone) doesn’t quite line up. If it could be tweaked a little, that would make quite the difference..Version: 1.1.1
Aesthetically pleasing, but time consuming.Great app, but I wish there was a way to select multiple icons at once and change the background / icon color for all of the selected icons at the same time..Version: 1.2
Great application with great supportI had issue setting up glyph icons with transparent background as they are not aligned with the wallpaper properly. After reaching out to the developer, the issue has been fixed in couple days..Version: 1.2
It’s a ok appNeed more icon themes..Version: 1.1.1
I’m sure it’s greatIt seems like a well running app, but my question is how to I get started? My shortcuts won’t allow it and I’m just wonder how to use this app but I’d love to try..Version: 1.1.1
Such A Great App!I’m so glad I found this app via a video tutorial! It’s exactly what I’d been looking for and easiest to use above other methods I’d tried! Thank you!.Version: 1.2
If the profile doesn’t jnstall, safari needs to be your default browser.Great app.Version: 1.0.1
Issue with shortcutsOnly about half my icons actually work, most just open a black screen. Didn’t always used to be this way not sure if the shortcut broke or an update messed things up..Version: 1.2
BEST ICON CHANGER EVERGet this app it is the best app ever I’ve seen so far of course you can search on the icon changes but this is the best one and will get updated every day it’s the best app I’ve ever seen.Version: 1.0.1
NotificationsGreat app but there is no notifications shows.Version: 1.2
Really goodThis app is AMAZING. It works perfectly, and is infinitely better than using Shortcuts..Version: 1.2
Cool idea.App working as it’s supposed to. It has a little learning curve for sure. Worth the tip..Version: 1.0.1
AbsolutelyFreaking perfect. Just what I’ve been looking for. Thanks devs! 😃.Version: 1.0.1
The Best So FarI like it. Watch the video and poof! Your a icon wizard! Great app! Make it easy with this app. GREAT JOB!.Version: 1.0
Good but tedious to doIt’s great. Super simple. It’s just a little tedious haha..Version: 1.0.1
YushIf u do this with widget smith it’s LIT.Version: 1.1.1
GoodSolid app.Version: 1.1.1
So easy an Android user can do it.For several reasons, not the least of which is the ability to finally customize home screens, I decided to grab an iPhone 12 to replace my old of Lg V30 for my second line.
I stumbled across this app on a random search. It is priceless. I'm used to grabbing a 3rd party launcher, and mixing and matching icon packs to get the look I want. With this, not only can I make the exact icon I like, the process is dead simple.
And the icons are pulling directly to the app, without involving Siri shortcuts, so opening is just as instantaneous as using the native app without mods.
I paid the top tip, but the dev gives you options for free (only functional restrictions are limits to number of profiles, and no blank icons - used to arrange the pages however you want), 4.99, 6.99, and 9.99. You pay for the value you get. 4.99 seems to get you the same features as the 9.99 tier.
In any case, this seems to be a 1 stop shop for Home Screen iconography.
Color me impressed.Version: 1.1.1
Awesome!I didn't know apps open without showing the shortcut screen anymore!.Version: 1.3.2
Please fix!!This app is incredibly great, but I cannot find some key apps (YouTube, Google, Google Photos…) when I’m setting up my custom icons.
Please fix it!.Version: 1.0.1
