Featured: Top 25 Best Icon Packs for Android

One of Android's biggest strengths is the ability to customize many parts of the operating system to make the phone you want.  We're not just talking about switching out your default browser for Firefox or Chrome instead of the built-in one, we're talking full-out creative customization via icon packs, wallpapers (living or not), themes and more.  Depending on what phone you have, if you are rooted and whether you run a custom ROM or not, these customizations can be restricted to just your home screen or can permeate the whole of the OS. That's why we're bringing you our favorite 25 icons packs that are regularly updated to give your device a fresh new look.  We're already nearly a month into what's officially deemed summer now, so it's likely time to toss whatever you've been using and move onto something new!  We'll break them down into four main categories: square, rounded square, circular and miscellaneous.  This will hopefully help you separate each of them visually and choose which ones are your favorite for each look.

Square

Rifon The last but certainly not least in the square set is Rifon, which uses multiple colors on each icon and tends to lean toward dual color schemes a lot.  There are over 1,700 icons including many alternative icons to choose for apps, and it also includes 17 HD wallpapers.  As of this writing Rifon is on sale for $0.99, which is half off, as well as all the other icon packs by this dev.

Rounded Square

Alos Alos is easily one of the largest icon packs around with nearly 2,200 themed icons.  Alos is another flat icon pack that features super bright colored backgrounds with highly contrasting icons up front.  Extras include 31 wallpapers, dynamic calendar icon support, Muzei live wallpaper support, minimalistic clock widget and weekly updates.  It doesn't get much better than Alos.

Circular

Notro Notro satisfies the film Noir lovers out there with a completely dark grey and white flat color scheme with simple, unique icons inside each circlular background.  For $0.99 you get over 300 icons, which is unfortunately less than other icon packs, but you won't find ones this unique anywhere else.

Miscellaneous

Moonshine Last but not least is Moonshine, which is modeled after Google's own Android L Material Design, and was the first icon pack to feature leaked designs from Android L.  The best part about Moonshine is not just that it has nearly 400 icons, but that it's completely free, and the developer has been updating the set regularly since the launch.  Looking for that next big look before Android L hits?  What are you waiting for, grab these now!
