Custom Icons

When users start using the Iconical - Customize your iPhone app on their iPhone or iPad, they will be able to create a fully customized home screen that not only has unique icons that can be created by the user, but also have better functionality.

For instance, if you use an app such as Viber often to call your parents, your significant other, or your best friend, then you can make an icon on your home screen open up Viber and dial that person. You also have the option of locking your shortcuts if you need to.

This app can also let you replace the original app icon completely and put your own in its place. Users can create shortcut icons for over 17,000 apps, and shortcut actions for over 250 apps.

Create and Share

So how do you go about changing the icons for your apps? There are a number of ways in which this can be done. You can zoom into the icon, rotate it, or even draw on it. Alternatively, you can import an image from your camera roll to use as your icon.

If you create an icon which you would like to share with others, you can upload it to the app servers, or you can share it with your friends so they can use it on their iOS devices too.

The difference between this app and others like it in the App Store, is that none of your icon info will be saved to the app servers; all information is contained within your iPhone or iPad. Furthermore, your iDevice will retain the edited icons and the shortcuts.

Some iPhone customization apps state that your icons will stop working if you delete their app. But with Iconical you can change iphone icons and everything needed by your icon is embedded within the icon itself.
