Android users already know the joys of personalization. With launchers and icon packs, it’s easy to achieve the look and style you want. But what if you want to clash different looks into one blend of Android beauty? Luckily, there’s a way to do that.
The majority of launchers make it very easy to change your device’s icons; pick any number of the ones we’ve covered over the past several months. The bad news is they don’t allow users to change individual icons. Instead, it’s more of an all-or-nothing affair, so if you want something like Moonshine, you’re stuck with Moonshine. Until now.
Awesome Icons lets you mix and match your home screen icons with icon packs from the Play store. Say you like the Instagram icon from Moonshine, but prefer the Snapchat icon from Zolo. With Awesome Icons, you can use whatever icons you want, with any launcher you want—even Google Now.
What’s really cool is that Awesome Icons even lets you create your own custom icons. If you’re really creative, you can do something like draw icons on paper, use your device’s camera to capture them, and use them on your phone. The possibilities are endless; setup a certain look on one home screen, and a completely different look on another.
You don’t even need a launcher if you don’t want, nor do you need to root to make Awesome Icons work. The app is completely free, too, with no paid versions or trials. The bad news is that you have to go through apps on an individual basis to get the exact look you want, but it brings personalization to the next level.
