What are icon packs? and how to install them on Android?



In world wide web of internet you can find millions of softwares for both mobile and desktop operating systems with it's own icon like logo for digital platforms which helps people in identifying softwares and also useful for branding, promotions and marketing purposes that's why almost all software developers and companies take alot of time even spend millions of dollars to hire top and popular graphic designers to make best icon for software or product in order to attract people around the world.

Usually, most companies make thier company logo as thier software icons like for instance Xiaomi a well known popular smartphone company which taken approx 3 years and was charged US$300K for it's new logo that they converted it as icon to put on it's online shopping app MI store by this you can understand the importance of logos and icons, isn't super cool?

But, it's possible you may don't like icons of some softwares or you may probably prefer different style of icon with same design and structure like black and white icon instead of color ones or round icons over squared icons isn't? for people like you many third party developers created numerous softwares on both deskop and smartphones operating systems by using them you can make your own icons then customize icons of any softwares.

On Google's Android operating system for instance using APK Editor you can simply edit .apk format software then change its logo permanently even though you can replace it but it's kind of lengthy process especially when you want to change icons of alot of softwares that's why developers and companies adding support to home launchers to apply custom icon packs.


Home launcher is also software usually available on both deskop and smartphone operating systems which is the first software that you'll see when you unlock your PC or smartphone that lists all your softwares with it's icons accordingly so that you can access them convieniently.

However, most default system home launchers especially on Android OS provided by companies don't give an option to apply custom icon packs which is why people who really like to change appearance of icons are shifting to third party home launchers which have in-built support to apply custom icon packs.

We have numerous popular and cool home launchers providers on Android OS like Teslacoil software, Android Does Team, Smart Launcher Team, Action Launcher, prjkt.io, David sn etc are out of them you have to the select the best one as you need to use it to open softwares everytime easily and comfortably.
