Description
Create your own icons on your Home Screen using iconical. Easily customise your home screen with your own icons or create useful shortcut icons that perform some of your commonly used actions. Lock your shortcuts to stop people using your apps. YOUTUBE http://iconic.al/u/tutorial Do you want a faster way to make a call without having to find their contact? There's nothing faster than a contact call icon on your home screen. Do you Skype the same person frequently? Create a home screen icon that will open Skype and call that person automatically. Have an icon that stands out too much on your home screen? Simply make your own shortcut icon for that app and hide the original icon (Supported apps only). Features: -Create shortcut icons for 85,000+ supported apps -Create shortcut actions for 250+ supported apps -Lock your icons to stop other people using your apps -Edit your icon by drawing, rotating, zooming -Download any image to use in your icon -Share your icon with friends for them to use What makes us different to other home screen shortcut apps? Most apps need to send the information for your icon to their servers to generate. iconical works 100% on your device. Some apps state that your icons will stop working if you delete their app. Not with iconical. Everything needed by your icon is embedded within the icon itself (Unless you are using locked icons). **** The screenshot icons are available here http://www.iconic.al/themes/ ****
Iconical Icloud
by the-gamefowl-community.com on 2020/01/20 19:31
App does some of what it says but skips many needed features. (1.) It has no way to edit any of your Title mistakes or icon changes.. (2.) App also does not accept spaces, For instance if you enter title “The Red Horse” would show TheRedHorse.. Minor I guess but that’s not what you entered in title... (3.) Also this may be a security to think, before sharing app you must MANDATORY agree to his pop up that’s states, “Before sharing, you must upload to Iconical icloud” kinda funny after you set your pin passcode.. (4.) Bad of all you can’t change passcodes either, only thing is delete the app and restart again and wonder what happened to your info on Iconical icloud, guess who it belongs to ??? Also if you click on the app there is an overwrite on your main https link, check the left hand side you’ll see, this may not be good to use as metadata link and may be a possible http:// issue? Let’s get the developer back to the html table and code some fixes........
icons
by Mzxoop on 2020/01/14 21:57
Any way that i could get the custom icon to appear on lock screen? if so would make my rating to 5 stars.
This is an excellent app.
by Snype1 on 2019/12/28 20:31
It makes you easily able to customize your phone and create a unique look that no other iOS user will have. Similar things can be accomplished with the shortcuts app but it’s not nearly as easy and intuitive and is definitely worth the buy. 10/10 !
Not worth 2.99
by funkman2000 on 2019/12/28 05:15
Don’t waste your money, all it does is create a shortcut icon to the app, you can’t actually change the icon for the app itself. I wouldn’t hate on it so hard if it was free but at $3 it’s just not worth it
Pretty good, just missing a couple apps
by Addybacca on 2019/12/15 04:51
I’m totally missing the apps: Notes Dreamdays Disney+ Please if you can have someone respond with some urls for those apps. Thank you so very much💕
The free version works great but...
by LerayJ on 2019/11/01 18:44
I would give five stars for the way the app works. It is very user friendly and you can use your own website URLs in addition to the thousands in their database. But: #1 there are very few websites that I visit more than a few times and thereby need to have them on my home screen as icons. #2 there are only a very few Icons on their database that I can used to replace replace the ones that I keep on my home screen. (perhaps six or seven of the 50 or 60 that use)... for those two reasons I would give perhaps one or two stars. So far the overall rating, as an average, my Rating is three stars. I hope the Developers will find a way to replace the apps that are bundled in my iPhone to start with, with the great icons that I would like to create for myself.
Ok But
by d******t on 2019/10/28 08:17
The app is ok and it does exactly what it says. It would get 5 stars if it had a better variety of apps and icon notifications letting you know you have a message. You will never know you have a Emil message if you don’t click on the icon.
Badges?
by critterjewelz on 2019/09/17 01:10
Any chance there is a way to still have badge notifications using this app. Can’t tell if I get a msg. Unless I keep the actual icon still on the home page to see it there. Kinda defeats the hiding purpose. Other than that it works well!

Waste of Money
by 🦋 Z on 2019/08/23 01:04
I found better apps that don't charge and provide more. I regret wasting my money on this.
Suspicious
by SoCal Lady on 2019/08/16 19:38
I love the idea of this but I didn’t know it scanned all of my apps. I understand why it might have to do this but didn’t like the idea so I deleted it.
Keeps crashing
by Dwren5536 on 2019/08/07 15:20
Crashes every time I try to open it.
Fast Tech Response
by KathyGoldCanyon on 2019/08/01 14:13
If you ever have a question - just email the help. I had an response to my inquiry within 5 minutes!!
Does what it says, but has some downsides
by Wickedgamereveiwer on 2019/07/30 18:08
The fact that the shortcuts don’t have notification badges was a downside I didn’t consider but understand, but the shortcut remaining open in your app switcher is one that should be fixed if possible. The brief delay in opening the app is also a small price to pay for custom icons. All in all, it’s good but not perfect.
App does not work-crashes
by Foxxyj17 on 2019/07/26 05:41
Well I paid $2.99 for this app excited five the 4.0 star review. The app will not even load. It’s just black, spins and crashes my phone. Plus there is no way to contact them other than leaving a review. Hopefully they will be issuing my refund soon.
Great
by egf05 on 2019/07/15 14:24
This app has been wonderful for making my apps all look alike through personal art.
Good app
by Know No Name on 2019/06/29 17:46
Can you add ‘infinite painter’ to your list of shortcut apps?
FIXED! yea! share extension fixed!
by iwantgizmos on 2019/06/23 15:02
developer response is fast! using share in the app store on an app to more directly get this iconical app to work to make a shortcut on a particular app is better than waiting forever for all possible shortcut-able apps to load in this app. thanks!
Not bad but could use some variety.
by Tenashido on 2019/06/02 18:54
Just a note it would be very nice to see support for more popular apps specifically gaming like for an example pocket Mortys and not 1000 links to Snapchat that I don’t even have o.O support for more apps would definitely get a 5 star rating! This is the app for people that want to change their icon skins without the usual bookmark stall.
The app doesn’t work!
by #1-5 on 2019/06/02 03:13
The app dose not really make the app icons change I watched a lot of videos on how to use the app and followed everything correctly and even reset my phone and it still didn’t work I’m very angry I just wanted to change my icons and instead I wasted $2.99 on an app I’ll never use again! 😑 I hope this is helpful and people don’t make the same mistake I did! Good luck finding an app that works!
LOVE IT!!! 👍
by hfbrjfhekdbdk on 2019/05/25 20:31
AMAZING!!! I love this app a lot. I have been looking for a good icon changing app for a while, and when i tried this one, it works AMAZINGLY!!! anyone that's out there looking for an icon changing app, I highly recommend this one! 👍
Please add support for Aloha web browser
by 5star to 1star on 2019/04/11 00:16
I would appreciate it
App not supported
by Jaw94087 on 2019/04/08 18:21
Of the 133000+ apps vendor indicated supported, they don’t support the one app I wanted which is cesium music. 3 bucks for nothing.
Good app
by firecub315 on 2019/03/17 00:09
It took me awhile to figure out how to use it though
horrible
by kamkammy on 2019/01/22 08:39
so it doesn't save anything i do. i do the process i click add to home screen, and it doesn't add to home screen it just sits there. if i could rate 0 stars, i would. it IS NOT worth 3 dollars at all. DO NOT BUY THIS APP!! it's useless and a scam, and takes your money.
Great for creating web page shortcuts
by Toltepeceno on 2019/01/14 05:38
Crap for creating app shortcuts.
Very helpful
by Adamschicka on 2019/01/05 22:08
Was super easy to customize an icon to launch any app I wanted it to.
Great!
by DSF1964 on 2018/12/18 15:36
I discovered this app a year or two ago, after one of its competitors did not update their software to the latest iOS version. (I use this in conjunction with Launcher program - Using them for different features). This is the best app that I’ve found for creating standalone shortcuts. The last upgrade, which really increased the Library of available shortcuts, is great! I use it as a shortcut to several different programs. But the single biggest thing I use it for is to open a blank email that is pre-addressed (to myself). When I get to work on Monday morning, I typically have anywhere from 5 to 15 emails that I’ve sent myself over the weekend! (New ideas or reminders about things) All it takes is pushing one button on my home screen to bring up that blank, pre-addresses e-mail. Thanks!!
Will update to 5 stars if...
by Jayoh96 on 2018/11/05 14:51
Bookmarks should not redirect to safari. I wanted to use this for a website that has app functionality when bookmarked. Redirecting to safari isn’t what I wanted. Other than that the app does what it says. I don’t understand the negative reviews. Seems like the less tech savvy don’t understand this is a workaround for the lack of permissions apple gives to devs/users.
Doesn’t work, only crashes
by IronStarGazette on 2018/09/16 16:37
When I try to open the app it goes thru two set up screens and when you get to the third one and press Allow Notifications the app shuts down. Dev please fix, I’m running latest ios on iPhone 8 Plus. Thx
Awesome
by PanteraHell on 2018/08/25 15:35
Don’t know why people complain about this app. It’s great and does exactly what I need it to do. I was able to change the ugly music icon to a PanterA one, very bada**.
Misleading functionality
by Gustavo Prato on 2018/08/20 21:49
I was lead to believe that the app will allow you to edit or modify apps names and only after downloaded realized all it does it create shortcuts to websites or a shortcut to an app that already exists but you can download the original app which defeats the purpose of editing the name. Wish I could get my money back.
Not worth 2.99
by Sylondria on 2018/08/14 12:17
The creator should be paying me not me paying them. The app doesnt overide the app so basically i is just another app the i dont want on my homescreen. would not recommend. You might aswell get CocoPPa It is free and does the sane thing!
Wasted money
by Neb Trebeh on 2018/08/10 11:05
Terrible app. All I wanted to do is change icons like phone and mail. No go.
Keeps crashing.
by Andrew_123 on 2018/08/07 05:08
It has potential, but the app didint really have what i needed. Frequent crashes and no way to look for the thenes I want are available.
Severe Flaws
by mishakessler on 2018/07/01 23:29
The idea that over 85,000 apps are supported is wonderful, until you confront the problem that the app scans ALL 85,000 APPS IN THEIR REPOSITORY to see which ~50 or 100 apps you have on your phone... It makes absolutely no sense, whatsoever. It’s dumbfounding. The scanning process is now entering its 2nd hour, at only 15,000 out 85,000; it’s completely crashed my phone, and it’s making it overheat. The code infrastructure behind this doesn’t bode well for its usefulness. Developers, please, PLEASE rethink how you determine which apps are installed and cross-reference them with your database.
Trash
by Sushi495939 on 2018/05/19 08:26
The app wouldn’t even work. Takes FOREVER to load and it doesn’t even work.
Kinda works?
by stubbyguns on 2018/04/17 01:13
It makes a shortcut, but that’s it. Will not load any image I select for the new icon. Do not download. Junk app.
Garbage
by ManintheiCloud on 2018/02/26 01:11
Don’t waste your time or money. Using iPhone 7 iOS 11.2.6 and doesn’t work at all.
Iconical is the best, period.
by Sunofabeach on 2018/01/31 02:21
My iPhone wouldn't be the same without Iconical! Thanks so much for the latest update. For years I've been using icon launchers that let you make shortcuts to apps and weblinks, but this one is definitely the easiest I've used. I make icons for my apps that go right to the action I want and it's great that I can even lock the icons with a launch password! I especially like the way I can customize my apps. For instance, in less than 30 seconds I made an icon called "Twitter @CNN" which I can tap and jump directly to all the @CNN posts -- simple and quick... I really love the way this thing lets me customize my phone! So far, I've made about 200 icons on my iPhone using Iconical to launch apps and point to different web links of topics grouped into folders that give me quick and easy access to them. Please keep up development of Iconical. It takes Apple's hidden gem in iOS (URL schemes) and really lets me customize my iPhone! Techie P.S. The coolest thing is that the launch icons you make will continue to work even if you delete the Iconical app. The icons you create with it have the code embedded inside them and are generated right from inside your iPhone without using an external server. Private and secure.

All the features are exactly what I want. But I would like to make a skin for paper.io and hope that you can give support for this app. Thank you so much.
Love it
by Rickey1969 on 2017/07/09 17:33
Best app ever for app customizing did not no that you could do it and I like the lock feature
Love this❤️
by OMG WORST APP EVER alright on 2017/07/01 00:15
I got this idea from a friend to change the icons of my phone. This works very well! I have had no issues but only suggestions. If Snapchat and wattpad could be added to the list of apps that work, it would be even better
This is stupid
by HappyMommi on 2017/04/20 16:26
This doesn't change the icon at all. All it does is create a second icon of the app with the name and image of your choosing, but it in no way disguises an icon.
Sweet
by James Terrell Johnson II on 2016/12/12 07:58
Sometimes Apple updates there apps and it just looks awful, so I use this app to create a short cut.
Not bad
by Bro9175927 on 2016/11/17 00:21
It shouldn't be $2.99 but I at least color coded all my apps. Maybe work on getting more apps available. But it's easy to work with.
Make work for iphone 7 please!!!
by Gotus on 2016/10/08 03:09
this app is amazing if you take some time to learn about it it could bring a whole theme!! please make it work for iphone 7!!
Ironical iconical
by Justin Handley 1985 on 2016/09/03 13:33
DOES NOT WORK I WANT A REFUND WASTE OF MY TIME 👌🏼 THANKS
Looking for more
by dude536480862 on 2016/06/28 22:14
I was hoping to find a way to remove the names from beneath the app icons. This can create a replica of the icon via a shortcut created through Safari's "add to home screen" option, but it won't have the badge app icon notifications. I wish Apple would build in the option to remove the redundant app labels.
Love it❣
by abbylyn444 on 2016/03/13 17:23
You know those unsightly webpages that you save to your desktop? Now you can give them an icon! I save an image/logo from the webpage to use for the icon. Works great!
Absolutely Awesome!!!
by What's farce on 2016/01/05 23:49
I don't understand how some guy says "only system apps"! I strongly suspect it's a PBCK error there! The app supports a gazillions user apps and more importantly, the author RESPONDS, and really tries to help. Over and above other app authors I have dealt with. Sorry the max is only 5 stars here. Should have 9.9 😎
I want a refund
by ZxRoar on 2015/12/21 20:27
please give me a refund only works or system apps I'm so mad I can't believe I wasted 2 dollars don't get I said if your reading this don't get!!! It's just bad please / I'm the first one to right a review in 2015 just please don't get it!! I want a refund!!!
Dont want to refresh
by juan bak on 2015/10/24 14:32
Update now please , because don't want to refresh new apps , it just stay loading
Read reviews!!!!!
by David Meier Smith on 2015/09/30 12:12
One day I will learn. Look at the negative reviews before throwing money into the garbage. If you are buying this app, just skip the hassle. Take your $2 and walk to your garbage can. Throw it there. At least then the types of people that release this stuff to the world won't get it. What a pain this is. You lave to log in every time you want to open an app with their "special" icon? And launch a browser? I'm nervous now that I used my fingerprint and all to launch this. They already stole $2. I hope they don't steal more.
Native home screen launcher
by s8m2s on 2015/08/07 03:14
This app lets you create custom home screen icons to launch apps. Adding url scheme's to the home screen is not a simple request. Doing this without the help of this app requires some scripting, not to mention still needing an icon. The dialing issue some have complained about is not the calf of this app, but is instead a limitation of the phones url scheme. Well worth $1.
Waste of Money
by Liamcarter0905 on 2015/06/29 02:37
All this app does is create a separate shortcut for the app so that you have the old app and the new shortcut app.
Not worth it
by Adamski760 on 2015/05/26 04:15
This app is not worth $2. I have many free apps that are worth more to me than this one which is worthless and a waist of $2 because I deleted it. I don't even want to use it. It has to open your web browser to open the app you created which isn't a trade off worth making in my opinion. Plus why make a app for a contact when it takes more steps hitting the contact shortcut app you created and then hitting "yes" to call when you could just ask Siri to call them in less steps. it's just stupid in my opinion and not worth it personally. Just re-learned the lesson of not purchasing a app until it has been reviewed a handful of times. At least I can be the one who saves people there money and time on this one this time.
Best app
by Hazy galaxy on 2015/05/18 21:32
I have been using this app for a while it's awesome. I don't have a jailbroken iPhone so I use this to change my icons to what I want

Only two complaints
by Jambake on 2015/05/03 03:37
1) very few apps are supported by this app. 2) if the app supports an action, such as "new message" in the texting app, you have to use one of the actions. You can't simply open the app. In email and texting you have to compose a new message instead of just opening to inbox or the messages title screen. Kinda annoying.

There needs to be a way to add apps yourself. Not enough supported apps in the database.

Does exactly what it says it will do in a easy format.
Great App
by LC1950 on 2015/02/15 14:03
A bit of a learning curve...but does what it says it will. The only shortcoming is the number of apps supported. 17,000 may seem like a lot...but out of , what, a million plus? Hopefully more will be added going forward. Worth the money.
BEST APP EVER
by Bob Waz here on 2015/01/04 04:57
I wish I could give this a 6 star rating wouldn't work for a year then I was about to delete it and it decided to work
Do not buy
by JoeDaddy74 on 2014/11/25 03:58
Worst app ever waist of time and money. You can't do anything in it
It was meant to be different
by fer16041996 on 2014/09/15 03:29
It made me think it would change the appareance of the icon instead of making another one. This makes me mad. I payed for something that doesnt do what I wanted it to. If its possible I'd like a refound.
Yowzer
by Avroshack on 2014/08/10 17:09
The whole app is a great idea and it works very well, but, to my horror, it will only change the icon of apps that are on some unknown short list of apps that are compatible with this app. None of my apps that I wanted to create new icons for we're on this list!!!
Great app!!!
by Robbie1251 on 2014/07/10 01:46
It's Easy to use. It allows you to customize your iPhone with ought having to jail brake your device some handy when It comes to sending a txt or opening a website on a flash. Only thing I can think of is Mc tube would be greatly be appreciated thanks!!!!
3 stars for now!!
by B. Kauten on 2014/07/06 13:26
I'll give it 3 stars for the time being! Reason is that when you set up a direct call icon it doesn't directly call the person you still have the pop up that says call number or cancel! I made the icon for a reason to directly call the person so it shouldn't give to call / cancel option it should just direct dial! Other than that easy to create icons and pretty self explanatory! Fox the one issue and will get perfect rating from me! Also wish you could create and icon for messaging where you can add multiple numbers so it automatically opens a group text, right now your limited to only having one number per icon you make.
Aweful
by Fearthereeper on 2014/03/13 21:39
Not easy to use, and opens a URL for every app you create! WOULD NOT RECOMEND!
Perfect customize app
by Nielsned on 2014/02/21 06:45
What can I say; it just works. There is no other app that can do what iconical can do ;-) and questions are rapidly answered by Darren also a big + ! Keep up the good work!
WORST APP EVER
by Upgraderath on 2014/02/02 01:09
I hate this It glitches
I'm mad
by It-be-havin-5-sides-broski on 2014/01/13 02:09
Pardon my French but this app is a piece of crap. I'm not one to get paid apps but I got this one so I could make my period tracker look like not a period tracker and all it did was create a duplicate icon going through safari that was customizable. Don't waste your time or your money on this app
Safe?
by Question4everything on 2013/11/27 22:16
Seems like a decent icon issue workaround, but it also could potentially be a sandbox security workaround. I’m not making assumptions… but what assurances are in place to verify to the end user that it isn’t going to proxy copy sensitive information?
Save your $$$
by Bvrettski on 2013/11/16 13:41
I was really excited about the prospect of replacing, what i feel, are the shabbily designed icons that are part of ios 7. However iconical is not the tool to do it with. The process of creating and icon is a painstaking and tedious one given the limited tools and the hoops iconical wants you to jump through. Can you make icons with it? Yes. Do they look good? Most of the time they don't and iconical doesnt give the tools, the power or the right controls to make good looking, professional icons. Save your money...
Stupid!!
by joseph davidson on 2013/11/14 10:23
This is crap! Don't waist your time or money on this!
Best, simplest icon personalization app
by gfann on 2013/11/13 01:15
I'm giving this app 5 stars for two reason. One, the other reviews are very unfair. There in no icon maker app the can do what they want. You will always have to keep the original app. Thats true in any app of this kind. I love the simplicity of this app. Creating icons are easier then any other similar app I've used. If you want goofy skins, boarders, then this isn't for you if you want to create an modified app in seconds, this is the app for you.
Don't waste your money or hd space
by Dude/34533433 on 2013/10/18 23:01
All this app does is creates a shortcut through Safari and puts a bookmark on your homepage. So every time you "shortcut call" someone it opens a new web browser then launches a new window with the phone number that you have to click the call button. So the so called shortcut requires 2 new open windows and still requires you to press call. Same number of steps as calling someone from your favorites list, only way more annoying.
Bad
by Bfo46778 on 2013/10/10 13:40
Only makes alias icons so the original app and icon are still there somewhere and it only works with a few apps. Most apps I have can't be changed with iconical.
Phone Launch App
by DarkKnght213 on 2013/10/08 19:07
If you can modify every action to "Launch App" that would be much appreciated because just calling one person in the phone app isn't that rad. Yet again love the app but, just a suggestion as well as it would be freaking awesome !!!!
Not that useful
by Alemap222 on 2013/09/29 03:12
Cannot replace most system icons. The ones I could replace like safari and gmail bring up another screen before bringing up the app.
Great App.
by jr_masters on 2013/09/21 12:07
This is a great app. It helped me create shortcuts for family's iPhones and iPads in cases where they did not know how to navigate through an app. Thanks for the iOS 7 updates.
Awesome App! It works again!! GREAT UPDATE!
by polarbear4567 on 2013/09/21 08:45
I'm so excited this app finally got updated and is working perfectly in iOS 7. Thanks to the dev for all the hard work! Works flawlessly!
Doesn't work
by Honesty Speaking on 2013/09/17 01:07
The icon links to another app and crashed. Please sort it out!!
junk
by deiong on 2013/09/13 15:30
they falsely advertise changing icons. they do not all it does is make a webshortcut for apps. coulda did this manually without this software, and the thing is the manual process is faster then this apps process. RIP OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Epic Icons!

This app is amazing! I was skeptical - sounded too good to be true. The instructions looked too easy. Surprise! Who says stuff has to be hard and complicated to work well? On my first try Iconical worked flawlessly. I can only guess that the peeps that are having problems are on developer iOS 7.... I'm on 6 Great App
Good, if you know what your getting.
by JAC_151 on 2013/08/24 21:28
You CANNOT change the icon of apps, Apple won't allow it. This app allows you to create a new icon that likes to an existing one. If that's what you want than this app is a very refined solution.
Great app
by iRadu68 on 2013/08/18 13:05
I love this app... I recommend it!
Ummmmm
by RjAmN on 2013/08/13 02:55
Please tell me your kidding. So misleading.
Alright. Could Use Improvement.
by jjmesa14 on 2013/08/12 09:11
This app pretty much does what it says you can create your own custom icons with different pictures and different names. Can't upload my own icons but that's probably just user error. I expect this app to be better in the future as more updates come out. One annoying thing is when you create a contact/call icon it takes you to a black screen and then asks you if you want to call that number. I obviously want to call that person. I touched the icon. Could be simplified to just tap the icon and it calls that person. YES THIS APP DOES CREATE A DUPLICATE ICON BUT JUST PUT YOUR OTHER ICONS IN A FOLDER ON ANOTHER PAGE.
Wheres the Iconical Cloud?
by addisonjames on 2013/08/11 16:40
Great idea, simple layout, but not much much use if I don't have any alternative app icon graphics to import. The app says it will make our submissions available to the Iconical Cloud for other users, but I can't figure out how to access or browse the Iconical Clound. Happy to update my review once this changes. If its a future feature you need to explain this to your users.
Waste of money
by Kinsey Dobbs on 2013/08/10 11:57
It doesn't work...when I open the app, or I guess the shortcut, just a black screen appears
Broken
by TipAndRing on 2013/08/09 14:07
I didn't plan on using Iconical for the dubious function of replicating my icons with icons of my own liking; however, I was pretty excited about being able to invoke other apps and, say, go to a URL. Well, I configured a link to a URL using the Chrome app it worked for a few times. However, it seemed to be cacheing the data since it was not always current - I had to refresh it. Going to the same URL within Chrome, the refresh was not necessary. However, the big problem is that somehow you will lose the link to the saved URL and you end up, within Chrome, on a page you have visited previously within the Chrome app. If then you navigate to the URL that was programmed into Iconical the app works for awhile, until it breaks again, of course, you often have to refresh to get current data.
Ilikeit
by KiZzYcAt on 2013/08/09 02:53
I use it to make custom icons for contacts.
I want my money back!!!
by kirita_87 on 2013/08/08 15:53
Should have read the reviews!!! Too bad apple doesn't provide money back guarantee! Could have bought candy with these 99 cents instead!!!!
Waste of time! Don't buy
by SHYMAGIK on 2013/08/07 14:27
It just creates a shortcut of the app So now you get to have two of the same app!
Not bad but could use some variety.
by Tenashido on 2019/06/02 18:54
Just a note it would be very nice to see support for more popular apps specifically gaming like for an example pocket Mortys and not 1000 links to Snapchat that I don’t even have o.O support for more apps would definitely get a 5 star rating! This is the app for people that want to change their icon skins without the usual bookmark stall.
The free version works great but...
by LerayJ on 2019/11/01 18:44
I would give five stars for the way the app works. It is very user friendly and you can use your own website URLs in addition to the thousands in their database. But: #1 there are very few websites that I visit more than a few times and thereby need to have them on my home screen as icons. #2 there are only a very few Icons on their database that I can used to replace replace the ones that I keep on my home screen. (perhaps six or seven of the 50 or 60 that use)... for those two reasons I would give perhaps one or two stars. So far the overall rating, as an average, my Rating is three stars. I hope the Developers will find a way to replace the apps that are bundled in my iPhone to start with, with the great icons that I would like to create for myself.
Great!
by DSF1964 on 2018/12/18 15:36
I discovered this app a year or two ago, after one of its competitors did not update their software to the latest iOS version. (I use this in conjunction with Launcher program - Using them for different features). This is the best app that I’ve found for creating standalone shortcuts. The last upgrade, which really increased the Library of available shortcuts, is great! I use it as a shortcut to several different programs. But the single biggest thing I use it for is to open a blank email that is pre-addressed (to myself). When I get to work on Monday morning, I typically have anywhere from 5 to 15 emails that I’ve sent myself over the weekend! (New ideas or reminders about things) All it takes is pushing one button on my home screen to bring up that blank, pre-addresses e-mail. Thanks!!
This is an excellent app.
by Snype1 on 2019/12/28 20:31
It makes you easily able to customize your phone and create a unique look that no other iOS user will have. Similar things can be accomplished with the shortcuts app but it’s not nearly as easy and intuitive and is definitely worth the buy. 10/10 !
Does what it says, but has some downsides
by Wickedgamereveiwer on 2019/07/30 18:08
The fact that the shortcuts don’t have notification badges was a downside I didn’t consider but understand, but the shortcut remaining open in your app switcher is one that should be fixed if possible. The brief delay in opening the app is also a small price to pay for custom icons. All in all, it’s good but not perfect.
Pretty good, just missing a couple apps
by Addybacca on 2019/12/15 04:51
I’m totally missing the apps: Notes Dreamdays Disney+ Please if you can have someone respond with some urls for those apps. Thank you so very much💕
FIXED! yea! share extension fixed!
by iwantgizmos on 2019/06/23 15:02
developer response is fast! using share in the app store on an app to more directly get this iconical app to work to make a shortcut on a particular app is better than waiting forever for all possible shortcut-able apps to load in this app. thanks!
Will update to 5 stars if...
by Jayoh96 on 2018/11/05 14:51
Bookmarks should not redirect to safari. I wanted to use this for a website that has app functionality when bookmarked. Redirecting to safari isn’t what I wanted. Other than that the app does what it says. I don’t understand the negative reviews. Seems like the less tech savvy don’t understand this is a workaround for the lack of permissions apple gives to devs/users.
The app doesn’t work!
by #1-5 on 2019/06/02 03:13
The app dose not really make the app icons change I watched a lot of videos on how to use the app and followed everything correctly and even reset my phone and it still didn’t work I’m very angry I just wanted to change my icons and instead I wasted $2.99 on an app I’ll never use again! 😑 I hope this is helpful and people don’t make the same mistake I did! Good luck finding an app that works!
LOVE IT!!! 👍
by hfbrjfhekdbdk on 2019/05/25 20:31
AMAZING!!! I love this app a lot. I have been looking for a good icon changing app for a while, and when i tried this one, it works AMAZINGLY!!! anyone that's out there looking for an icon changing app, I highly recommend this one! 👍
Badges?
by critterjewelz on 2019/09/17 01:10
Any chance there is a way to still have badge notifications using this app. Can’t tell if I get a msg. Unless I keep the actual icon still on the home page to see it there. Kinda defeats the hiding purpose. Other than that it works well!
Ok But
by d******t on 2019/10/28 08:17
The app is ok and it does exactly what it says. It would get 5 stars if it had a better variety of apps and icon notifications letting you know you have a message. You will never know you have a Emil message if you don’t click on the icon.
Fast Tech Response
by KathyGoldCanyon on 2019/08/01 14:13

by PanteraHell on 2018/08/25 15:35
Don’t know why people complain about this app. It’s great and does exactly what I need it to do. I was able to change the ugly music icon to a PanterA one, very bada**.
Great
by egf05 on 2019/07/15 14:24
This app has been wonderful for making my apps all look alike through personal art.
Misleading functionality
by Gustavo Prato on 2018/08/20 21:49
I was lead to believe that the app will allow you to edit or modify apps names and only after downloaded realized all it does it create shortcuts to websites or a shortcut to an app that already exists but you can download the original app which defeats the purpose of editing the name. Wish I could get my money back.
Kinda works?
by stubbyguns on 2018/04/17 01:13
It makes a shortcut, but that’s it. Will not load any image I select for the new icon. Do not download. Junk app.
Please add support for Aloha web browser
by 5star to 1star on 2019/04/11 00:16
I would appreciate it
App does not work-crashes
by Foxxyj17 on 2019/07/26 05:41
Well I paid $2.99 for this app excited five the 4.0 star review. The app will not even load. It’s just black, spins and crashes my phone. Plus there is no way to contact them other than leaving a review. Hopefully they will be issuing my refund soon.
Very helpful
by Adamschicka on 2019/01/05 22:08
Was super easy to customize an icon to launch any app I wanted it to.
Keeps crashing.

It has potential, but the app didint really have what i needed. Frequent crashes and no way to look for the thenes I want are available.
Doesn’t work, only crashes
by IronStarGazette on 2018/09/16 16:37
When I try to open the app it goes thru two set up screens and when you get to the third one and press Allow Notifications the app shuts down. Dev please fix, I’m running latest ios on iPhone 8 Plus. Thx

horrible
by kamkammy on 2019/01/22 08:39
so it doesn't save anything i do. i do the process i click add to home screen, and it doesn't add to home screen it just sits there. if i could rate 0 stars, i would. it IS NOT worth 3 dollars at all. DO NOT BUY THIS APP!! it's useless and a scam, and takes your money.
Good app
by firecub315 on 2019/03/17 00:09
It took me awhile to figure out how to use it though
Not worth 2.99
by funkman2000 on 2019/12/28 05:15
Don’t waste your money, all it does is create a shortcut icon to the app, you can’t actually change the icon for the app itself. I wouldn’t hate on it so hard if it was free but at $3 it’s just not worth it
Not worth 2.99
by Sylondria on 2018/08/14 12:17
The creator should be paying me not me paying them. The app doesnt overide the app so basically i is just another app the i dont want on my homescreen. would not recommend. You might aswell get CocoPPa It is free and does the sane thing!

Only two complaints
by Jambake on 2015/05/03 03:37
1) very few apps are supported by this app. 2) if the app supports an action, such as "new message" in the texting app, you have to use one of the actions. You can't simply open the app. In email and texting you have to compose a new message instead of just opening to inbox or the messages title screen. Kinda annoying.
Waste of Money

3 stars for now!!
by B. Kauten on 2014/07/06 13:26
I'll give it 3 stars for the time being! Reason is that when you set up a direct call icon it doesn't directly call the person you still have the pop up that says call number or cancel! I made the icon for a reason to directly call the person so it shouldn't give to call / cancel option it should just direct dial! Other than that easy to create icons and pretty self explanatory! Fox the one issue and will get perfect rating from me! Also wish you could create and icon for messaging where you can add multiple numbers so it automatically opens a group text, right now your limited to only having one number per icon you make.
Not worth it
by Adamski760 on 2015/05/26 04:15
This app is not worth $2. I have many free apps that are worth more to me than this one which is worthless and a waist of $2 because I deleted it. I don't even want to use it. It has to open your web browser to open the app you created which isn't a trade off worth making in my opinion. Plus why make a app for a contact when it takes more steps hitting the contact shortcut app you created and then hitting "yes" to call when you could just ask Siri to call them in less steps. it's just stupid in my opinion and not worth it personally. Just re-learned the lesson of not purchasing a app until it has been reviewed a handful of times. At least I can be the one who saves people there money and time on this one this time.
Alright. Could Use Improvement.

Best, simplest icon personalization app
by gfann on 2013/11/13 01:15
I'm giving this app 5 stars for two reason. One, the other reviews are very unfair. There in no icon maker app the can do what they want. You will always have to keep the original app. Thats true in any app of this kind. I love the simplicity of this app. Creating icons are easier then any other similar app I've used. If you want goofy skins, boarders, then this isn't for you if you want to create an modified app in seconds, this is the app for you.

Read reviews!!!!!
by David Meier Smith on 2015/09/30 12:12
One day I will learn. Look at the negative reviews before throwing money into the garbage. If you are buying this app, just skip the hassle. Take your $2 and walk to your garbage can. Throw it there. At least then the types of people that release this stuff to the world won't get it. What a pain this is. You lave to log in every time you want to open an app with their "special" icon? And launch a browser? I'm nervous now that I used my fingerprint and all to launch this. They already stole $2. I hope they don't steal more.
Love this❤️
by OMG WORST APP EVER alright on 2017/07/01 00:15
I got this idea from a friend to change the icons of my phone. This works very well! I have had no issues but only suggestions. If Snapchat and wattpad could be added to the list of apps that work, it would be even better
Don't waste your money or hd space
by Dude/34533433 on 2013/10/18 23:01
All this app does is creates a shortcut through Safari and puts a bookmark on your homepage. So every time you "shortcut call" someone it opens a new web browser then launches a new window with the phone number that you have to click the call button. So the so called shortcut requires 2 new open windows and still requires you to press call. Same number of steps as calling someone from your favorites list, only way more annoying.
Phone Launch App
by DarkKnght213 on 2013/10/08 19:07
If you can modify every action to "Launch App" that would be much appreciated because just calling one person in the phone app isn't that rad. Yet again love the app but, just a suggestion as well as it would be freaking awesome !!!!
Absolutely Awesome!!!
by What's farce on 2016/01/05 23:49
I don't understand how some guy says "only system apps"! I strongly suspect it's a PBCK error there! The app supports a gazillions user apps and more importantly, the author RESPONDS, and really tries to help. Over and above other app authors I have dealt with. Sorry the max is only 5 stars here. Should have 9.9 😎
Looking for more
by dude536480862 on 2016/06/28 22:14
I was hoping to find a way to remove the names from beneath the app icons. This can create a replica of the icon via a shortcut created through Safari's "add to home screen" option, but it won't have the badge app icon notifications. I wish Apple would build in the option to remove the redundant app labels.

Description
Create your own icons on your Home Screen using iconical. Easily customise your home screen with your own icons or create useful shortcut icons that perform some of your commonly used actions. Lock your shortcuts to stop people using your apps. YOUTUBE http://iconic.al/u/tutorial Do you want a faster way to make a call without having to find their contact? There's nothing faster than a contact call icon on your home screen. Do you Skype the same person frequently? Create a home screen icon that will open Skype and call that person automatically. Have an icon that stands out too much on your home screen? Simply make your own shortcut icon for that app and hide the original icon (Supported apps only). Features: -Create shortcut icons for 85,000+ supported apps -Create shortcut actions for 250+ supported apps -Lock your icons to stop other people using your apps -Edit your icon by drawing, rotating, zooming -Download any image to use in your icon -Share your icon with friends for them to use What makes us different to other home screen shortcut apps?

Some apps state that your icons will stop working if you delete their app. Not with iconical. Everything needed by your icon is embedded within the icon itself (Unless you are using locked icons). **** The screenshot icons are available here http://www.iconic.al/themes/ ****
Iconical Icloud
by the-gamefowl-community.com on 2020/01/20 19:31
App does some of what it says but skips many needed features. (1.) It has no way to edit any of your Title mistakes or icon changes.. (2.) App also does not accept spaces, For instance if you enter title “The Red Horse” would show TheRedHorse.. Minor I guess but that’s not what you entered in title... (3.) Also this may be a security to think, before sharing app you must MANDATORY agree to his pop up that’s states, “Before sharing, you must upload to Iconical icloud” kinda funny after you set your pin passcode.. (4.) Bad of all you can’t change passcodes either, only thing is delete the app and restart again and wonder what happened to your info on Iconical icloud, guess who it belongs to ??? Also if you click on the app there is an overwrite on your main https link, check the left hand side you’ll see, this may not be good to use as metadata link and may be a possible http:// issue? Let’s get the developer back to the html table and code some fixes........

Well I paid $2.99 for this app excited five the 4.0 star review. The app will not even load. It’s just black, spins and crashes my phone. Plus there is no way to contact them other than leaving a review. Hopefully they will be issuing my refund soon.
Great
by egf05 on 2019/07/15 14:24
This app has been wonderful for making my apps all look alike through personal art.
Good app
by Know No Name on 2019/06/29 17:46
Can you add ‘infinite painter’ to your list of shortcut apps?
FIXED! yea! share extension fixed!
by iwantgizmos on 2019/06/23 15:02
developer response is fast! using share in the app store on an app to more directly get this iconical app to work to make a shortcut on a particular app is better than waiting forever for all possible shortcut-able apps to load in this app. thanks!
Not bad but could use some variety.
by Tenashido on 2019/06/02 18:54
Just a note it would be very nice to see support for more popular apps specifically gaming like for an example pocket Mortys and not 1000 links to Snapchat that I don’t even have o.O support for more apps would definitely get a 5 star rating! This is the app for people that want to change their icon skins without the usual bookmark stall.
The app doesn’t work!
by #1-5 on 2019/06/02 03:13
The app dose not really make the app icons change I watched a lot of videos on how to use the app and followed everything correctly and even reset my phone and it still didn’t work I’m very angry I just wanted to change my icons and instead I wasted $2.99 on an app I’ll never use again! 😑 I hope this is helpful and people don’t make the same mistake I did! Good luck finding an app that works!
LOVE IT!!! 👍
by hfbrjfhekdbdk on 2019/05/25 20:31
AMAZING!!! I love this app a lot. I have been looking for a good icon changing app for a while, and when i tried this one, it works AMAZINGLY!!! anyone that's out there looking for an icon changing app, I highly recommend this one! 👍
Please add support for Aloha web browser
by 5star to 1star on 2019/04/11 00:16
I would appreciate it
App not supported
by Jaw94087 on 2019/04/08 18:21
Of the 133000+ apps vendor indicated supported, they don’t support the one app I wanted which is cesium music. 3 bucks for nothing.
Good app
by firecub315 on 2019/03/17 00:09
It took me awhile to figure out how to use it though
horrible
by kamkammy on 2019/01/22 08:39
so it doesn't save anything i do. i do the process i click add to home screen, and it doesn't add to home screen it just sits there. if i could rate 0 stars, i would. it IS NOT worth 3 dollars at all. DO NOT BUY THIS APP!! it's useless and a scam, and takes your money.
Great for creating web page shortcuts
by Toltepeceno on 2019/01/14 05:38
Crap for creating app shortcuts.
Very helpful
by Adamschicka on 2019/01/05 22:08
Was super easy to customize an icon to launch any app I wanted it to.
Great!
by DSF1964 on 2018/12/18 15:36
I discovered this app a year or two ago, after one of its competitors did not update their software to the latest iOS version. (I use this in conjunction with Launcher program - Using them for different features). This is the best app that I’ve found for creating standalone shortcuts. The last upgrade, which really increased the Library of available shortcuts, is great! I use it as a shortcut to several different programs. But the single biggest thing I use it for is to open a blank email that is pre-addressed (to myself). When I get to work on Monday morning, I typically have anywhere from 5 to 15 emails that I’ve sent myself over the weekend! (New ideas or reminders about things) All it takes is pushing one button on my home screen to bring up that blank, pre-addresses e-mail. Thanks!!
Will update to 5 stars if...
by Jayoh96 on 2018/11/05 14:51
Bookmarks should not redirect to safari. I wanted to use this for a website that has app functionality when bookmarked. Redirecting to safari isn’t what I wanted. Other than that the app does what it says. I don’t understand the negative reviews. Seems like the less tech savvy don’t understand this is a workaround for the lack of permissions apple gives to devs/users.
Doesn’t work, only crashes
by IronStarGazette on 2018/09/16 16:37
When I try to open the app it goes thru two set up screens and when you get to the third one and press Allow Notifications the app shuts down. Dev please fix, I’m running latest ios on iPhone 8 Plus. Thx
Awesome
by PanteraHell on 2018/08/25 15:35
Don’t know why people complain about this app. It’s great and does exactly what I need it to do. I was able to change the ugly music icon to a PanterA one, very bada**.
Misleading functionality
by Gustavo Prato on 2018/08/20 21:49
I was lead to believe that the app will allow you to edit or modify apps names and only after downloaded realized all it does it create shortcuts to websites or a shortcut to an app that already exists but you can download the original app which defeats the purpose of editing the name. Wish I could get my money back.
Not worth 2.99
by Sylondria on 2018/08/14 12:17
The creator should be paying me not me paying them. The app doesnt overide the app so basically i is just another app the i dont want on my homescreen. would not recommend. You might aswell get CocoPPa It is free and does the sane thing!
Wasted money
by Neb Trebeh on 2018/08/10 11:05
Terrible app. All I wanted to do is change icons like phone and mail. No go.
Keeps crashing.
by Andrew_123 on 2018/08/07 05:08
It has potential, but the app didint really have what i needed. Frequent crashes and no way to look for the thenes I want are available.
Severe Flaws
by mishakessler on 2018/07/01 23:29
The idea that over 85,000 apps are supported is wonderful, until you confront the problem that the app scans ALL 85,000 APPS IN THEIR REPOSITORY to see which ~50 or 100 apps you have on your phone... It makes absolutely no sense, whatsoever. It’s dumbfounding. The scanning process is now entering its 2nd hour, at only 15,000 out 85,000; it’s completely crashed my phone, and it’s making it overheat. The code infrastructure behind this doesn’t bode well for its usefulness. Developers, please, PLEASE rethink how you determine which apps are installed and cross-reference them with your database.
Trash
by Sushi495939 on 2018/05/19 08:26
The app wouldn’t even work. Takes FOREVER to load and it doesn’t even work.
Kinda works?
by stubbyguns on 2018/04/17 01:13
It makes a shortcut, but that’s it. Will not load any image I select for the new icon. Do not download. Junk app.
Garbage
by ManintheiCloud on 2018/02/26 01:11
Don’t waste your time or money. Using iPhone 7 iOS 11.2.6 and doesn’t work at all.
Iconical is the best, period.
by Sunofabeach on 2018/01/31 02:21
My iPhone wouldn't be the same without Iconical! Thanks so much for the latest update. For years I've been using icon launchers that let you make shortcuts to apps and weblinks, but this one is definitely the easiest I've used. I make icons for my apps that go right to the action I want and it's great that I can even lock the icons with a launch password! I especially like the way I can customize my apps. For instance, in less than 30 seconds I made an icon called "Twitter @CNN" which I can tap and jump directly to all the @CNN posts -- simple and quick... I really love the way this thing lets me customize my phone! So far, I've made about 200 icons on my iPhone using Iconical to launch apps and point to different web links of topics grouped into folders that give me quick and easy access to them. Please keep up development of Iconical. It takes Apple's hidden gem in iOS (URL schemes) and really lets me customize my iPhone! Techie P.S. The coolest thing is that the launch icons you make will continue to work even if you delete the Iconical app. The icons you create with it have the code embedded inside them and are generated right from inside your iPhone without using an external server. Private and secure.
POS
by Keef from TN on 2017/12/07 14:37
Don’t waste your money! This app is terrible. One star is too much!
Please support this request
by btroth7 on 2017/10/08 19:39
All the features are exactly what I want. But I would like to make a skin for paper.io and hope that you can give support for this app. Thank you so much.
Love it
by Rickey1969 on 2017/07/09 17:33
Best app ever for app customizing did not no that you could do it and I like the lock feature
Love this❤️
by OMG WORST APP EVER alright on 2017/07/01 00:15
I got this idea from a friend to change the icons of my phone. This works very well! I have had no issues but only suggestions. If Snapchat and wattpad could be added to the list of apps that work, it would be even better
This is stupid
by HappyMommi on 2017/04/20 16:26
This doesn't change the icon at all. All it does is create a second icon of the app with the name and image of your choosing, but it in no way disguises an icon.
Sweet
by James Terrell Johnson II on 2016/12/12 07:58
Sometimes Apple updates there apps and it just looks awful, so I use this app to create a short cut.
Not bad
by Bro9175927 on 2016/11/17 00:21
It shouldn't be $2.99 but I at least color coded all my apps. Maybe work on getting more apps available. But it's easy to work with.
Make work for iphone 7 please!!!
by Gotus on 2016/10/08 03:09
this app is amazing if you take some time to learn about it it could bring a whole theme!! please make it work for iphone 7!!
Ironical iconical
by Justin Handley 1985 on 2016/09/03 13:33
DOES NOT WORK I WANT A REFUND WASTE OF MY TIME 👌🏼 THANKS
Looking for more
by dude536480862 on 2016/06/28 22:14
I was hoping to find a way to remove the names from beneath the app icons. This can create a replica of the icon via a shortcut created through Safari's "add to home screen" option, but it won't have the badge app icon notifications. I wish Apple would build in the option to remove the redundant app labels.
Love it❣
by abbylyn444 on 2016/03/13 17:23
You know those unsightly webpages that you save to your desktop? Now you can give them an icon! I save an image/logo from the webpage to use for the icon. Works great!
Absolutely Awesome!!!
by What's farce on 2016/01/05 23:49
I don't understand how some guy says "only system apps"! I strongly suspect it's a PBCK error there! The app supports a gazillions user apps and more importantly, the author RESPONDS, and really tries to help. Over and above other app authors I have dealt with. Sorry the max is only 5 stars here. Should have 9.9 😎
I want a refund
by ZxRoar on 2015/12/21 20:27
please give me a refund only works or system apps I'm so mad I can't believe I wasted 2 dollars don't get I said if your reading this don't get!!! It's just bad please / I'm the first one to right a review in 2015 just please don't get it!! I want a refund!!!
Dont want to refresh
by juan bak on 2015/10/24 14:32
Update now please , because don't want to refresh new apps , it just stay loading
Read reviews!!!!!
by David Meier Smith on 2015/09/30 12:12
One day I will learn. Look at the negative reviews before throwing money into the garbage. If you are buying this app, just skip the hassle. Take your $2 and walk to your garbage can. Throw it there. At least then the types of people that release this stuff to the world won't get it. What a pain this is. You lave to log in every time you want to open an app with their "special" icon? And launch a browser? I'm nervous now that I used my fingerprint and all to launch this. They already stole $2. I hope they don't steal more.
Native home screen launcher
by s8m2s on 2015/08/07 03:14
This app lets you create custom home screen icons to launch apps. Adding url scheme's to the home screen is not a simple request. Doing this without the help of this app requires some scripting, not to mention still needing an icon. The dialing issue some have complained about is not the calf of this app, but is instead a limitation of the phones url scheme. Well worth $1.
Waste of Money
by Liamcarter0905 on 2015/06/29 02:37
All this app does is create a separate shortcut for the app so that you have the old app and the new shortcut app.
Not worth it
by Adamski760 on 2015/05/26 04:15
This app is not worth $2. I have many free apps that are worth more to me than this one which is worthless and a waist of $2 because I deleted it. I don't even want to use it. It has to open your web browser to open the app you created which isn't a trade off worth making in my opinion. Plus why make a app for a contact when it takes more steps hitting the contact shortcut app you created and then hitting "yes" to call when you could just ask Siri to call them in less steps. it's just stupid in my opinion and not worth it personally. Just re-learned the lesson of not purchasing a app until it has been reviewed a handful of times. At least I can be the one who saves people there money and time on this one this time.
Best app
by Hazy galaxy on 2015/05/18 21:32
I have been using this app for a while it's awesome. I don't have a jailbroken iPhone so I use this to change my icons to what I want

Only two complaints
by Jambake on 2015/05/03 03:37
1) very few apps are supported by this app. 2) if the app supports an action, such as "new message" in the texting app, you have to use one of the actions. You can't simply open the app. In email and texting you have to compose a new message instead of just opening to inbox or the messages title screen. Kinda annoying.

by Chrsparrish on 2015/04/22 10:03
There needs to be a way to add apps yourself. Not enough supported apps in the database.
Great
by Natedrobnick16 on 2015/03/19 04:55
Does exactly what it says it will do in a easy format.
Great App
by LC1950 on 2015/02/15 14:03
A bit of a learning curve...but does what it says it will. The only shortcoming is the number of apps supported. 17,000 may seem like a lot...but out of , what, a million plus? Hopefully more will be added going forward. Worth the money.
BEST APP EVER
by Bob Waz here on 2015/01/04 04:57
I wish I could give this a 6 star rating wouldn't work for a year then I was about to delete it and it decided to work
Do not buy
by JoeDaddy74 on 2014/11/25 03:58
Worst app ever waist of time and money. You can't do anything in it
It was meant to be different
by fer16041996 on 2014/09/15 03:29
It made me think it would change the appareance of the icon instead of making another one. This makes me mad. I payed for something that doesnt do what I wanted it to. If its possible I'd like a refound.
Yowzer
by Avroshack on 2014/08/10 17:09
The whole app is a great idea and it works very well, but, to my horror, it will only change the icon of apps that are on some unknown short list of apps that are compatible with this app. None of my apps that I wanted to create new icons for we're on this list!!!
Great app!!!
by Robbie1251 on 2014/07/10 01:46
It's Easy to use. It allows you to customize your iPhone with ought having to jail brake your device some handy when It comes to sending a txt or opening a website on a flash. Only thing I can think of is Mc tube would be greatly be appreciated thanks!!!!
3 stars for now!!
by B. Kauten on 2014/07/06 13:26
I'll give it 3 stars for the time being! Reason is that when you set up a direct call icon it doesn't directly call the person you still have the pop up that says call number or cancel! I made the icon for a reason to directly call the person so it shouldn't give to call / cancel option it should just direct dial! Other than that easy to create icons and pretty self explanatory! Fox the one issue and will get perfect rating from me! Also wish you could create and icon for messaging where you can add multiple numbers so it automatically opens a group text, right now your limited to only having one number per icon you make.
Aweful
by Fearthereeper on 2014/03/13 21:39
Not easy to use, and opens a URL for every app you create! WOULD NOT RECOMEND!
Perfect customize app
by Nielsned on 2014/02/21 06:45
What can I say; it just works. There is no other app that can do what iconical can do ;-) and questions are rapidly answered by Darren also a big + ! Keep up the good work!
WORST APP EVER
by Upgraderath on 2014/02/02 01:09
I hate this It glitches
I'm mad
by It-be-havin-5-sides-broski on 2014/01/13 02:09
Pardon my French but this app is a piece of crap. I'm not one to get paid apps but I got this one so I could make my period tracker look like not a period tracker and all it did was create a duplicate icon going through safari that was customizable. Don't waste your time or your money on this app
Safe?
by Question4everything on 2013/11/27 22:16
Seems like a decent icon issue workaround, but it also could potentially be a sandbox security workaround. I’m not making assumptions… but what assurances are in place to verify to the end user that it isn’t going to proxy copy sensitive information?
Save your $$$
by Bvrettski on 2013/11/16 13:41
I was really excited about the prospect of replacing, what i feel, are the shabbily designed icons that are part of ios 7. However iconical is not the tool to do it with. The process of creating and icon is a painstaking and tedious one given the limited tools and the hoops iconical wants you to jump through. Can you make icons with it? Yes. Do they look good? Most of the time they don't and iconical doesnt give the tools, the power or the right controls to make good looking, professional icons. Save your money...
Stupid!!
by joseph davidson on 2013/11/14 10:23
This is crap! Don't waist your time or money on this!
Best, simplest icon personalization app
by gfann on 2013/11/13 01:15
I'm giving this app 5 stars for two reason. One, the other reviews are very unfair. There in no icon maker app the can do what they want. You will always have to keep the original app. Thats true in any app of this kind. I love the simplicity of this app. Creating icons are easier then any other similar app I've used. If you want goofy skins, boarders, then this isn't for you if you want to create an modified app in seconds, this is the app for you.
Don't waste your money or hd space
by Dude/34533433 on 2013/10/18 23:01
All this app does is creates a shortcut through Safari and puts a bookmark on your homepage. So every time you "shortcut call" someone it opens a new web browser then launches a new window with the phone number that you have to click the call button. So the so called shortcut requires 2 new open windows and still requires you to press call. Same number of steps as calling someone from your favorites list, only way more annoying.
Bad
by Bfo46778 on 2013/10/10 13:40
Only makes alias icons so the original app and icon are still there somewhere and it only works with a few apps. Most apps I have can't be changed with iconical.
Phone Launch App
by DarkKnght213 on 2013/10/08 19:07
If you can modify every action to "Launch App" that would be much appreciated because just calling one person in the phone app isn't that rad. Yet again love the app but, just a suggestion as well as it would be freaking awesome !!!!
Not that useful
by Alemap222 on 2013/09/29 03:12
Cannot replace most system icons. The ones I could replace like safari and gmail bring up another screen before bringing up the app.
Great App.
by jr_masters on 2013/09/21 12:07
This is a great app. It helped me create shortcuts for family's iPhones and iPads in cases where they did not know how to navigate through an app. Thanks for the iOS 7 updates.
Awesome App! It works again!! GREAT UPDATE!
by polarbear4567 on 2013/09/21 08:45
I'm so excited this app finally got updated and is working perfectly in iOS 7. Thanks to the dev for all the hard work! Works flawlessly!
Doesn't work
by Honesty Speaking on 2013/09/17 01:07
The icon links to another app and crashed. Please sort it out!!
junk
by deiong on 2013/09/13 15:30
they falsely advertise changing icons. they do not all it does is make a webshortcut for apps. coulda did this manually without this software, and the thing is the manual process is faster then this apps process. RIP OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Epic Icons!
by cwk2 on 2013/09/13 07:16
This app is amazing! I was skeptical - sounded too good to be true. The instructions looked too easy. Surprise! Who says stuff has to be hard and complicated to work well? On my first try Iconical worked flawlessly. I can only guess that the peeps that are having problems are on developer iOS 7.... I'm on 6 Great App
Good, if you know what your getting.
by JAC_151 on 2013/08/24 21:28
You CANNOT change the icon of apps, Apple won't allow it. This app allows you to create a new icon that likes to an existing one. If that's what you want than this app is a very refined solution.
Great app
by iRadu68 on 2013/08/18 13:05
I love this app... I recommend it!
Ummmmm
by RjAmN on 2013/08/13 02:55
Please tell me your kidding. So misleading.
Alright. Could Use Improvement.
by jjmesa14 on 2013/08/12 09:11
This app pretty much does what it says you can create your own custom icons with different pictures and different names. Can't upload my own icons but that's probably just user error. I expect this app to be better in the future as more updates come out. One annoying thing is when you create a contact/call icon it takes you to a black screen and then asks you if you want to call that number. I obviously want to call that person. I touched the icon. Could be simplified to just tap the icon and it calls that person. YES THIS APP DOES CREATE A DUPLICATE ICON BUT JUST PUT YOUR OTHER ICONS IN A FOLDER ON ANOTHER PAGE.
Wheres the Iconical Cloud?
by addisonjames on 2013/08/11 16:40
Great idea, simple layout, but not much much use if I don't have any alternative app icon graphics to import. The app says it will make our submissions available to the Iconical Cloud for other users, but I can't figure out how to access or browse the Iconical Clound. Happy to update my review once this changes. If its a future feature you need to explain this to your users.
Waste of money
by Kinsey Dobbs on 2013/08/10 11:57
It doesn't work...when I open the app, or I guess the shortcut, just a black screen appears
Broken
by TipAndRing on 2013/08/09 14:07
I didn't plan on using Iconical for the dubious function of replicating my icons with icons of my own liking; however, I was pretty excited about being able to invoke other apps and, say, go to a URL. Well, I configured a link to a URL using the Chrome app it worked for a few times. However, it seemed to be cacheing the data since it was not always current - I had to refresh it. Going to the same URL within Chrome, the refresh was not necessary. However, the big problem is that somehow you will lose the link to the saved URL and you end up, within Chrome, on a page you have visited previously within the Chrome app. If then you navigate to the URL that was programmed into Iconical the app works for awhile, until it breaks again, of course, you often have to refresh to get current data.

by KiZzYcAt on 2013/08/09 02:53

I want my money back!!!
by kirita_87 on 2013/08/08 15:53
Should have read the reviews!!! Too bad apple doesn't provide money back guarantee! Could have bought candy with these 99 cents instead!!!!
Waste of time! Don't buy
by SHYMAGIK on 2013/08/07 14:27
It just creates a shortcut of the app So now you get to have two of the same app!
Not bad but could use some variety.
by Tenashido on 2019/06/02 18:54
Just a note it would be very nice to see support for more popular apps specifically gaming like for an example pocket Mortys and not 1000 links to Snapchat that I don’t even have o.O support for more apps would definitely get a 5 star rating! This is the app for people that want to change their icon skins without the usual bookmark stall.
The free version works great but...
by LerayJ on 2019/11/01 18:44
I would give five stars for the way the app works. It is very user friendly and you can use your own website URLs in addition to the thousands in their database. But: #1 there are very few websites that I visit more than a few times and thereby need to have them on my home screen as icons. #2 there are only a very few Icons on their database that I can used to replace replace the ones that I keep on my home screen. (perhaps six or seven of the 50 or 60 that use)... for those two reasons I would give perhaps one or two stars. So far the overall rating, as an average, my Rating is three stars. I hope the Developers will find a way to replace the apps that are bundled in my iPhone to start with, with the great icons that I would like to create for myself.
Great!
by DSF1964 on 2018/12/18 15:36

This is an excellent app.
by Snype1 on 2019/12/28 20:31
It makes you easily able to customize your phone and create a unique look that no other iOS user will have. Similar things can be accomplished with the shortcuts app but it’s not nearly as easy and intuitive and is definitely worth the buy. 10/10 !
Does what it says, but has some downsides
by Wickedgamereveiwer on 2019/07/30 18:08
The fact that the shortcuts don’t have notification badges was a downside I didn’t consider but understand, but the shortcut remaining open in your app switcher is one that should be fixed if possible. The brief delay in opening the app is also a small price to pay for custom icons. All in all, it’s good but not perfect.
Pretty good, just missing a couple apps
by Addybacca on 2019/12/15 04:51
I’m totally missing the apps: Notes Dreamdays Disney+ Please if you can have someone respond with some urls for those apps. Thank you so very much💕
FIXED! yea! share extension fixed!
by iwantgizmos on 2019/06/23 15:02
developer response is fast! using share in the app store on an app to more directly get this iconical app to work to make a shortcut on a particular app is better than waiting forever for all possible shortcut-able apps to load in this app. thanks!
Will update to 5 stars if...
by Jayoh96 on 2018/11/05 14:51
Bookmarks should not redirect to safari. I wanted to use this for a website that has app functionality when bookmarked. Redirecting to safari isn’t what I wanted. Other than that the app does what it says. I don’t understand the negative reviews. Seems like the less tech savvy don’t understand this is a workaround for the lack of permissions apple gives to devs/users.
The app doesn’t work!
by #1-5 on 2019/06/02 03:13
The app dose not really make the app icons change I watched a lot of videos on how to use the app and followed everything correctly and even reset my phone and it still didn’t work I’m very angry I just wanted to change my icons and instead I wasted $2.99 on an app I’ll never use again! 😑 I hope this is helpful and people don’t make the same mistake I did! Good luck finding an app that works!
LOVE IT!!! 👍
by hfbrjfhekdbdk on 2019/05/25 20:31
AMAZING!!! I love this app a lot. I have been looking for a good icon changing app for a while, and when i tried this one, it works AMAZINGLY!!! anyone that's out there looking for an icon changing app, I highly recommend this one! 👍
Badges?
by critterjewelz on 2019/09/17 01:10
Any chance there is a way to still have badge notifications using this app. Can’t tell if I get a msg. Unless I keep the actual icon still on the home page to see it there. Kinda defeats the hiding purpose. Other than that it works well!
Ok But
by d******t on 2019/10/28 08:17
The app is ok and it does exactly what it says. It would get 5 stars if it had a better variety of apps and icon notifications letting you know you have a message. You will never know you have a Emil message if you don’t click on the icon.
Fast Tech Response
by KathyGoldCanyon on 2019/08/01 14:13
If you ever have a question - just email the help. I had an response to my inquiry within 5 minutes!!
Awesome
by PanteraHell on 2018/08/25 15:35
Don’t know why people complain about this app. It’s great and does exactly what I need it to do. I was able to change the ugly music icon to a PanterA one, very bada**.
Great
by egf05 on 2019/07/15 14:24
This app has been wonderful for making my apps all look alike through personal art.
Misleading functionality
by Gustavo Prato on 2018/08/20 21:49
I was lead to believe that the app will allow you to edit or modify apps names and only after downloaded realized all it does it create shortcuts to websites or a shortcut to an app that already exists but you can download the original app which defeats the purpose of editing the name. Wish I could get my money back.
Kinda works?
by stubbyguns on 2018/04/17 01:13
It makes a shortcut, but that’s it. Will not load any image I select for the new icon. Do not download. Junk app.
Please add support for Aloha web browser
by 5star to 1star on 2019/04/11 00:16
I would appreciate it
App does not work-crashes
by Foxxyj17 on 2019/07/26 05:41
Well I paid $2.99 for this app excited five the 4.0 star review. The app will not even load. It’s just black, spins and crashes my phone. Plus there is no way to contact them other than leaving a review. Hopefully they will be issuing my refund soon.
Very helpful
by Adamschicka on 2019/01/05 22:08
Was super easy to customize an icon to launch any app I wanted it to.
Keeps crashing.
by Andrew_123 on 2018/08/07 05:08
It has potential, but the app didint really have what i needed. Frequent crashes and no way to look for the thenes I want are available.
Doesn’t work, only crashes
by IronStarGazette on 2018/09/16 16:37
When I try to open the app it goes thru two set up screens and when you get to the third one and press Allow Notifications the app shuts down. Dev please fix, I’m running latest ios on iPhone 8 Plus. Thx
icons
by Mzxoop on 2020/01/14 21:57
Any way that i could get the custom icon to appear on lock screen? if so would make my rating to 5 stars.
horrible
by kamkammy on 2019/01/22 08:39
so it doesn't save anything i do. i do the process i click add to home screen, and it doesn't add to home screen it just sits there. if i could rate 0 stars, i would. it IS NOT worth 3 dollars at all. DO NOT BUY THIS APP!! it's useless and a scam, and takes your money.
Good app
by firecub315 on 2019/03/17 00:09
It took me awhile to figure out how to use it though
Not worth 2.99
by funkman2000 on 2019/12/28 05:15
Don’t waste your money, all it does is create a shortcut icon to the app, you can’t actually change the icon for the app itself. I wouldn’t hate on it so hard if it was free but at $3 it’s just not worth it
Not worth 2.99
by Sylondria on 2018/08/14 12:17
The creator should be paying me not me paying them. The app doesnt overide the app so basically i is just another app the i dont want on my homescreen. would not recommend. You might aswell get CocoPPa It is free and does the sane thing!
Suspicious
by SoCal Lady on 2019/08/16 19:38
I love the idea of this but I didn’t know it scanned all of my apps. I understand why it might have to do this but didn’t like the idea so I deleted it.
Good app
by Know No Name on 2019/06/29 17:46
Can you add ‘infinite painter’ to your list of shortcut apps?
Great for creating web page shortcuts
by Toltepeceno on 2019/01/14 05:38
Crap for creating app shortcuts.
Keeps crashing
by Dwren5536 on 2019/08/07 15:20
Crashes every time I try to open it.
Only two complaints
by Jambake on 2015/05/03 03:37
1) very few apps are supported by this app. 2) if the app supports an action, such as "new message" in the texting app, you have to use one of the actions. You can't simply open the app. In email and texting you have to compose a new message instead of just opening to inbox or the messages title screen. Kinda annoying.
Waste of Money
by 🦋 Z on 2019/08/23 01:04
I found better apps that don't charge and provide more. I regret wasting my money on this.
Garbage
by ManintheiCloud on 2018/02/26 01:11
Don’t waste your time or money. Using iPhone 7 iOS 11.2.6 and doesn’t work at all.
Trash
by Sushi495939 on 2018/05/19 08:26
The app wouldn’t even work. Takes FOREVER to load and it doesn’t even work.
Wasted money
by Neb Trebeh on 2018/08/10 11:05
Terrible app. All I wanted to do is change icons like phone and mail. No go.
Broken
by TipAndRing on 2013/08/09 14:07
I didn't plan on using Iconical for the dubious function of replicating my icons with icons of my own liking; however, I was pretty excited about being able to invoke other apps and, say, go to a URL. Well, I configured a link to a URL using the Chrome app it worked for a few times. However, it seemed to be cacheing the data since it was not always current - I had to refresh it. Going to the same URL within Chrome, the refresh was not necessary. However, the big problem is that somehow you will lose the link to the saved URL and you end up, within Chrome, on a page you have visited previously within the Chrome app. If then you navigate to the URL that was programmed into Iconical the app works for awhile, until it breaks again, of course, you often have to refresh to get current data.
3 stars for now!!
by B. Kauten on 2014/07/06 13:26
I'll give it 3 stars for the time being! Reason is that when you set up a direct call icon it doesn't directly call the person you still have the pop up that says call number or cancel! I made the icon for a reason to directly call the person so it shouldn't give to call / cancel option it should just direct dial! Other than that easy to create icons and pretty self explanatory! Fox the one issue and will get perfect rating from me! Also wish you could create and icon for messaging where you can add multiple numbers so it automatically opens a group text, right now your limited to only having one number per icon you make.
Not worth it
by Adamski760 on 2015/05/26 04:15
This app is not worth $2. I have many free apps that are worth more to me than this one which is worthless and a waist of $2 because I deleted it. I don't even want to use it. It has to open your web browser to open the app you created which isn't a trade off worth making in my opinion. Plus why make a app for a contact when it takes more steps hitting the contact shortcut app you created and then hitting "yes" to call when you could just ask Siri to call them in less steps. it's just stupid in my opinion and not worth it personally. Just re-learned the lesson of not purchasing a app until it has been reviewed a handful of times. At least I can be the one who saves people there money and time on this one this time.
Alright. Could Use Improvement.
by jjmesa14 on 2013/08/12 09:11
This app pretty much does what it says you can create your own custom icons with different pictures and different names. Can't upload my own icons but that's probably just user error. I expect this app to be better in the future as more updates come out. One annoying thing is when you create a contact/call icon it takes you to a black screen and then asks you if you want to call that number. I obviously want to call that person. I touched the icon. Could be simplified to just tap the icon and it calls that person. YES THIS APP DOES CREATE A DUPLICATE ICON BUT JUST PUT YOUR OTHER ICONS IN A FOLDER ON ANOTHER PAGE.
Best, simplest icon personalization app
by gfann on 2013/11/13 01:15
I'm giving this app 5 stars for two reason. One, the other reviews are very unfair. There in no icon maker app the can do what they want. You will always have to keep the original app. Thats true in any app of this kind. I love the simplicity of this app. Creating icons are easier then any other similar app I've used. If you want goofy skins, boarders, then this isn't for you if you want to create an modified app in seconds, this is the app for you.

Great app!!!
by Robbie1251 on 2014/07/10 01:46
It's Easy to use. It allows you to customize your iPhone with ought having to jail brake your device some handy when It comes to sending a txt or opening a website on a flash. Only thing I can think of is Mc tube would be greatly be appreciated thanks!!!!
Read reviews!!!!!
by David Meier Smith on 2015/09/30 12:12
One day I will learn. Look at the negative reviews before throwing money into the garbage. If you are buying this app, just skip the hassle. Take your $2 and walk to your garbage can. Throw it there. At least then the types of people that release this stuff to the world won't get it. What a pain this is. You lave to log in every time you want to open an app with their "special" icon? And launch a browser? I'm nervous now that I used my fingerprint and all to launch this. They already stole $2. I hope they don't steal more.
Love this❤️
by OMG WORST APP EVER alright on 2017/07/01 00:15
I got this idea from a friend to change the icons of my phone. This works very well! I have had no issues but only suggestions. If Snapchat and wattpad could be added to the list of apps that work, it would be even better
Don't waste your money or hd space
by Dude/34533433 on 2013/10/18 23:01
All this app does is creates a shortcut through Safari and puts a bookmark on your homepage. So every time you "shortcut call" someone it opens a new web browser then launches a new window with the phone number that you have to click the call button. So the so called shortcut requires 2 new open windows and still requires you to press call. Same number of steps as calling someone from your favorites list, only way more annoying.
Phone Launch App
by DarkKnght213 on 2013/10/08 19:07
If you can modify every action to "Launch App" that would be much appreciated because just calling one person in the phone app isn't that rad. Yet again love the app but, just a suggestion as well as it would be freaking awesome !!!!
Absolutely Awesome!!!
by What's farce on 2016/01/05 23:49
I don't understand how some guy says "only system apps"! I strongly suspect it's a PBCK error there! The app supports a gazillions user apps and more importantly, the author RESPONDS, and really tries to help. Over and above other app authors I have dealt with. Sorry the max is only 5 stars here. Should have 9.9 😎
Looking for more
by dude536480862 on 2016/06/28 22:14
I was hoping to find a way to remove the names from beneath the app icons. This can create a replica of the icon via a shortcut created through Safari's "add to home screen" option, but it won't have the badge app icon notifications. I wish Apple would build in the option to remove the redundant app labels.
