How to change icon packs in some of the more popular Android launchers

Those reading our site on a regular basis have probably noticed one of our new regular columns, in which we highlight the better icon packs that have recently popped up on Google Play. Okay, but how does one change the icon pack of their phone
There many ways to do so, but the easiest and most hassle-free one is to install a custom launcher. Speaking of these, we have a pretty extensive article about the better ones out there that deserve your attention if you are into this kind of stuff.

We've rounded up some of the more popular launchers so as to show the not-so-advanced Android users how to change the icon packs inside.

In Nova you can also change each icon (long press>Edit>select the icon), whether in the homescreen or app drawer. You can have a mix of all the icon packs installed in your phone.

Yeah but the problem is that is only for individual icon, if u want it to be system wide, that's gonna be a pain in the ass.

You don't need to install a launcher to change the icons. Icon Changer and Awesome Icons apps are free on Google Play.
