The icons are nothing short of amazing and Mitch has provided them absolutely free of charge over on his site, along with some equally great looking wallpapers to compliment them. Now you can give your custom launcher — ADW, Go Launcher, Apex, etc. — a truly unique look. He’s currently taking requests for additional icons over at his post on Reddit — just don’t forget to upvote and share the love. Great work, Mitch!

  1. What clock widget is that?

  2. Soo how do I install once I download? Do I have to use CWM? Or do I have to wipe anything? Just being sure.

    1. No no no.. It’s just an icon pack. No root required. You’d just have to individually apply to existing icons while using one of those custom launchers. Go Launcher, Launcher Pro, ADW, Apex, Nova, whatever. Usually you just long press one of them and let go. You’ll see a menu for “replace icon” and choose the folder on your SD card with all these icons..

  3. I got to admit, those are some radically awesome looking iconography. Shouldn’t Google have made these icons for its Nexus line of phones…

    1. No, not everyone likes this type of icon. 

    2. They are cool, but I like the flat chrome icons better. The ones Chrome OS uses for say the maps app, youtube app, google app etc…. Even though those apps are glorified bookmarks the icons arw cool!

  4. Used them for my lockscreen was going to create my own but this saved me alot of time lol

  5. They look absolutely amazing.  I was messing around with desktop visualizer etc, but this is the berries IF you use launchers…to bad it doesnt work on stock 4.0.2 

  6. Why?

  7. These look pretty nice. Maybe use them next time I change my homescreens.

  8. I liked that you guys used the original Droid Bionic to showcase these icons on.

    1. The original?

      1. Yep. That is originally what the Bionic was going to look like before Moto pulled it back and released it eight months later looking more like the X series of phones.

        1. Ahhhh OK that’s right.

  9. not really a fan

  10. This is the way the GNEX should have come out, with these icons. It matches well with the ICS UI. Not those nasty looking so callled super HD amoled cheap icons. Till this day I can’t stand those icons. Samsung should have worked more on better icons. These icons are awesome and it blends so well. Thanks for the set.

  11. Not a fan, but nice to have the choice. We like Choice unlike other OS’s


    1. Then get Go Launcher Ex, Launcher Pro, ADW Launcher. Custom themes AND icons.  This article is late to the party. 

  13. They are cool icons no doubt, if I had a minimalist phone I’d jump on a lot of these icons packs, unfortunately I always have a a lot of apps installed, at my highest I had 200+ and I’ve since trimmed down a lot to 111 and the problem I always have is I always have a few icons I want on my home screen or home screen folder which aren’t in the pack and the ones those ones really bother me lol.

  14. how do i get these icons on my phone?

  15. Hurrah for the original G+ icon!

  16. What clock is that?
