Icon packs are one of the most popular methods of customization. Most mainstream third-party launchers support them, and they provide a cheap and unique way to customize your device. Plus, there are literally hundreds upon hundreds to choose from. When we first thought about making this list, we thought about doing individual icon packs. Unfortunately (or perhaps, fortunately), there are simply too many good ones out there.

We decided instead to list developers of icon packs rather than individual icon packs. This isn’t like most app genres where you get ten or 15 good ones and then the quality dips significantly, there are literally dozens, if not hundreds, of good icon packs. Thus, we encourage readers to drop their favorite icon packs in the comments and keep the list going for future readers. Here are the best icon packs for Android! There are some good one-offs as well, including Spendid and Delta. Plus, you can find some great icon older icon packs from GSeth here.
The best icon packs for Android
Price: Free / Up to $1.99 each
Benas Dzimidas has a variety of good icon packs. Some of the more popular ones include Rondo, Voxel, Lai, Elta, and Lux. There are many others to choose from as well. Benas Dzimidas icon packs typically feature very clean and colorful designs with flat graphics and various icon shapes. Lux works outstanding with dark themes (great for OLED devices), while Rondo works well to replace the stock Material Design style icons on something like a Pixel phone. Most of the icon packs are either free or require a small charge. We didn’t see anything that costs more than $1.99.
Edzon DM is another icon pack developer with a few decent icon packs. They include Linebit, Linebit Light, Linebit SE, Bixpic, and Simplit. The Linebit series is a minimal set of icons that work well with solid color wallpapers. The regular Linebit series is quite colorful, while the Light and SE versions are white and purple. Simplit and Bixpic are full-style icons with colorful designs. They should work well with most themes, and they’re relatively inexpensive.
Price: Free / Usually around $0.99
Göktuğ ULAŞ is another developer with a bunch of icon packs. Most of Göktuğ’s work sticks to the established norm (flat style, round icons) with various flair or additions to achieve a different look. That includes the Graby, Mellow Dark, Rugos (our favorite), Olmo, and Yomira. The most interesting-looking one of the bunch is Flax. It features rectangular shapes that you don’t see very often. All of the packs feature thousands of icons, Muzei support, and more. They’re also fairly cheap.
Indigo Madina has a few really decent icon packs. There isn’t much similarity between them, and there are about half a dozen to choose from. Tabloid, Jono, and Furatto are very good packs for fans of square or rectangular icons. Spheroid isn’t over unique, but it’s a rock-solid flat-style icon pack with round icons. Tigad is the most unique of the bunch, with a decidedly retro style to it. None of the packs cost more than $1.99, and that’s cheap to us, considering how many icons each pack has.
Price: $1.99 each
JustNewDesigns has more than half a dozen icon packs to choose from. They don’t stray too far from the norm. Most of them are square, squircle, or circle icons with bright colors, flat designs, and consistent theming. We definitely recommend Simplicon, Minimalist, and Minimal O for those types of icons from this developer. Recticons is good for those who like the longer rectangle icon design. Bolt has a good collection of decent circle icons as well. None of the packs cost more than $1.99.
Mowmo has a bunch of neat packs for Android. The developer seems to lean on retro-style looks in packs like Andromeda Vintage, DarkMatter, Xim, Minimale Vintage, and Forma Retro. You can also check out Fluxo and Naxos Flat for a more modern flair. We also quite liked the TwoPixel Light and TwoPixel Dark packs. They both feature super minimal style for both light and dark themes. They run for free or $0.99, depending on the pack. It’s a good collection.
Price: Free / Varies
Randle is a newer icon pack developer with a few decent icon packs. They include Zwart, Whicons, and Golden Icons. Zwart is one of the cleanest all-black icons that we’ve seen. Whicons is the same way except they are white. These are excellent for minimal themes with simple icon needs. Golden Icons takes the same style and applies gold to it. Some have lamented the particular shade of gold, but most seem to like it just fine. The apps are free with in-app purchases that range from $2.00 to $10.00.
Sikebo is a very competent icon pack developer with about a dozen icon packs to choose from. They range in style, but they all do a good job of feeling distinctly modern and retro at the same time. We especially like Retrorika’s and Anitmo’s retro color palette and flat design. Let It Be has a colorful and modern simplicity about it. Immaterial is excellent for darker themes, while iJuk’s pencil-drawn style is probably the most unique of the bunch. Simpax has a nice, muted color palette if you’re into that as well. The icon packs generally go for about $1.99 each.

TruePick’s is an interesting app. It doesn’t actually change your icons for you. However, it has various home screen set-ups with a launcher, icons, KWGT widget, and wallpaper. The app helps you recreate these set-ups by linking to all of those things, including the icons. Each link takes you to the Google Play Store, so there are no shady happenings here. Thus, you can actually use it to find a decent icon pack along with matching wallpaper and widgets if you want to. This one is fairly new and still working out some issues, but the links all work correctly. The pro version removes ads, lets you join their Telegram group, and you can upload your own set-up to help others.
Vertumus has dozens of icon packs for sale, and they’re all pretty decent. Vertumus seems to jump from style to style but focuses on darker icons that look great for dark themes. We really like Neon Glow, Omoro, HD Dark, Durgon, and Umbra for darker themes. Elun is an excellent flat, modern, and colorful icon pack, while Urmun and Velur put a little zest into the modern style. Cryten and Potem are excellent for lighter themes as well. Most of the icon packs cost around $0.99.
