Several premium icon packs are currently being offered for free on the Google Play Store. The apps come from a number of different developers and, are normally priced upwards of $0.99 each. According to a post on popular messaging board Reddit, some of the icon packs will be offered for free for a period of seven days, but many of them are being offered for free only today. So in case you want to get your hands on them without having to shell out any cash, you have a very narrow window to install them before they will once again have price-tags on them. The icon packs, listed below, come in various shapes and colors, so you’re very likely to find at least one that will suit your style and taste.
Here’s the complete list of the icon packs that are being offered for free: Krix Icon Pack, Mellow Dark – Icon Pack, Willx Icon Pack, Minimale Vintage Icon Pack, Lens Icon Pack, Coffee -Icon Pack, Darkmatter Vintage – Icon Pack, SL Theme Dera Pink, TwoPixel Dark – Icon Pack, TwoPixel Light – Icon Pack, Rest – Icon Pack and Pixxo – Pixel Icon Pack. Most of these icon packs have thousands of themed HD icons, so expect most of the popular apps and games to be covered. The developers also claim that their icon packs are compatible with a wide array of custom launchers, so most of these icon packs can also be applied to just about any launcher available in the Play Store currently. While the gallery below includes screenshots of each of the icon packs listed above, the featured image on top showcases the Lens Icon Pack on the ZenUI Launcher.
Developers are already taking advantage of the changes that Google has rolled out to the Play Store recently, as was announced at this year’s Game Developer Conference in San Francisco last week. According to the search giant, developers now have the option to run their own promotions on premium apps and games, allowing then to offer their software for free for a limited time. The tech giant also rolled out some other changes to the Play Store that are expected to bring more visibility to games from small indie developers by incorporating new algorithms so that more games get promoted based on their continued user engagement, rather than on the total number of installations alone, which typically tend to favor the larger studios.
