First we had squares, then we had circles, then squircles came around, and now... what is this? Squirtagons? Nevertheless, there are 5,900 icons aboard this icon pack, which is a pretty large amount of icons, no matter how you look at it. All of these can be yours for $1.49. To top the offer, you have a bunch of cloud-based wallpapers in tow.
Farrago is not something exceptionally revolutionary, but it's a neat icon pack nonetheless. With its circular shape, Farrago is a run-of-the-mill icon pack but that's not such a big problem considering how well this one's executed.
"Unique, colorful and shapeless" is how the developer of this app describes its creation and that perfectly encapsulates the whole philosophy behind it. You get over 1,100 icons and 1,200 themed Android Nougat activity shortcuts with Corvy. This means that long-pressing any icon will open up a menu with a bunch of app-specific activities, which is a great touch. You also get a bunch of Zooper and KWGT widgets with Corvy - excellent.
Inspired by Galaxy S8's interface, Dream Score aims to make your phone's interface resemble the one on Samsung's flagship. You will find 1516 aboard Dream Score provided you opt to shell out $0.99 for this one.
Diagonal has a rather unique style that really sets itself apart from the competition. It's cool and all, but the relatively lowly amount of icons on board—roughly 500— might scare off some potential adopters. Don't let this chase you off - Diagonal is a worthy new arrival to the scene.
