Did you know that you can give your smartphone or tablet a unique new look without having to replace it? There are several methods to changing this appearance, one of which is to simply to modify the icons. We have selected for you our six favorite icon packs: choose the one you like best!

What are icon packs for Android?

An icon pack is an application that replaces the icons on your Android device with original designs. Please note that most of these icon packs require the use of a launcher; some only work with specific launchers (for example only with Nova) If you don't have a custom launcher and want to see the best on the Google Play Store, check out our article:

Most of the best Android icon packs are compatible with the main launchers, if unfortunately the icon pack you are interested in is not compatible with your launcher, you can send an email to the developer, or change the launcher (but hey, we all know that such a change is very difficult...).

Tastes and colors are different from one person to another. Therefore, it is impossible to make a real ranking since the subject is far too subjective, but we suggest those that we think are the best, in no particular order.

Click UI

Many icon packs look like Click UI but it has the merit of being the first to offer icons with long shadows that give them the illusion of being in motion. You can also access many other icons (color and shape variants) if you wish. You can also configure your wallpaper and the lock screen, but there are better applications for this.

Retrorika offers you beautiful graphics with a touch of retro, all with Material Design. Each icon has a unique design: every detail has been worked on and that's why it appears in this list. Retrorika is one of the best icon packs if you want to have a retro and modern look in your device. Of course, you can also use it to configure your wallpaper.

  • Compatible launchers: 27 launchers, probably including yours


As its name suggests, PixBit offers highly pixelated icons that will appeal to geeks and fans of the 80s and 90s... The application also offers wallpapers (also pixelated). Will you be able to have pixels permanently on your screen? Personally, I enjoy it for a while, but I wouldn't be able to have it all the time.

  • Compatible launchers: Apex, Nova, ADW, Holo, Action, Aviate...


VIT Icon Pack has more than 2000 icons that give your Android device a pure look. Be careful, it's not possible with Android stock but pure in the graphic sense: white, grey and detail. In addition to these icons, you can also set your wallpaper, so these two elements allow you to have a smartphone with a totally different look. The icons have a standardized design but are still very elegant. VIT is free and compatible with many launchers. However, it should be noted that the application has not been updated since 2015.

  • Compatible Launchers: Nova, Apex, Action, Aviate, Themer, Smart, Atom, Inspire, KK, Solo, Holo, ADW, Nine, Unicon and some others

Zwart - Black Icon Pack

If you miss the Stamped Black Icon pack, which is no longer available on the Play Store, the Zwart Black Icon Pack by Randle is an excellent replacement, offering a minimalist monochrome look that fits just about any smartphone. In addition, the application has cloud wallpapers and Muzei support, and more than 5,000 icons are already available, but if you find one not on the list, you can still request it via a tool provided in the application itself.

  • Compatible Launchers: Nova, Apex, Action, Go, Solo, Trebuchet, Smart, Aviate, Next, KK, Nine, Blur, Unicon, ADW


Atran will become a fast favorite for all those who like unified circular icons with a retro filter effect. With more than 4,000 icons (and 30 HD wallpapers), your investment will be worthwhile and others are added all the time, so if you're looking for icons with a little originality, Atran is worth paying for.

  • Compatible Launchers: Action, Adw, AdwEX, Apex, Atom, Aviate,, GO, Inspire, KK, Lucid, Next, Nine, Nova, Smart, Solo, TSF, CM Theme Engine, Bubble Cloud Widgets and many others

Tigad Pro Icon Pack

This is another set of icons that probably won't please everyone's design sensibility, but if you have a penchant for 3D and want a little more depth in your icons, discover Tigad Pro. In total, this pack contains more than 7,800 custom icons, all designed in 3D and supporting their application directly or via most popular Android launchers, and like most other users in this list, it offers a number of wallpapers that also work with its icons in the application.

  • Compatible Launchers: L, Lucid, GO, Next, Apex, Action Pro, Nova, ADW, Holo, Holo HD, Aviate, Smart, Mini, KK, Solo, Epic, Inspire, Nine, Atom, Nemus, S, TSF Shell, LG Home (some issues), ThemerCM Theme Engine, Launchy Widget, Trebuchet, Unicon, maybe more


Icons that seem to have been dragged through the dust, why not? This icon pack has an aesthetic that matches its name. Despite this, the icons have a certain appeal, especially in combination with the 89 themed wallpapers included in the application. With its 3560 HD icons, Ruggon will give your phone that elegant post-apocalyptic look.

    Definitely exceptional choices! Ba-ut to my spirit anyway - many most of the icons in the Simpax collection are extraordinarileee unique aesthetic fun funny creative simple contributing in the sense of distinctive but not obtrusive color-pleasing but not colorfuullll - fun yet kind of formal in a refined kind of elevated-at-the-same-time-as-being-fun sort of way --- Surprised I don't see it included except rarely in best iconpack suggestions

    I tried icon packs early on in my Android experience. It just always seemed more work than benefit. What am I missing about the benefits?

      In reality, it is NOT "VIT", but rather a free icon pack called "MINMA"

    I have been rocking Free Pixel Icon Pack for over a year now and I am not bored of it yet. I also tried other paid icon packs too in between but I kept coming back to Pixel because no other Icon pack offered over 6700 Icons which covers almost all of my apps. and to top it all, i did not have to pay anything for it as it is a free pack. I would highly recommend the author to include it in the list and you guys should also try it out, just search for Pix UI Icon Pack on Playstore.

    people complain about the icons and shit, just think about the person or persons that design them, it takes time to make hundreds of different icons and have them look like different things but they all have to look related to each other, to be a theems. and another thing, most are free, be happy you have a choice to pick from. I don't know if iPhone has the same ability to change its looks like Android. I don't care fo r some good the icons either, but there are a lot that look good with the right wallpaper, and theems. and there are some really good looking icon packs too.some have a day glo look to them that looks awesome with the right wallpaper behind them. sometimes a solid color icon work well I certain circumstances. it depends on how you feel too, sometimes an icon pack will hit you in a way that it wouldn't if your mood was different that day. I'm always changing my Android looks. I'm lucky f I keep everything on it for more than a week.

    I just want the bog standard Lollipop icons on Nougat. I don't like those "sqround" ones. I found where to turn off icon frames so 3rd party apps can have their full, uncropped sizes, shapes and/or transparent backgrounds. Needs to replace the icons for the factory installed apps on my Galaxy Grand Prime J7.

    Paper Icon Pack
    Tigad Icon Pack
    Oreo Bickies Icon Pack
    Pebbles Icon Pack
    Rugos Icon Pack
    Sailfish Icon Pack
