Tech Tuesday: Iconical
This week’s Tech Tuesday nomination goes to Iconical, an app that allows you to customize your own icons on your iPhone home screen. That’s right people. For just a dollar 99, you can kick it back kindergarden style and put your coloring skills to work on over 14,000 supported apps. Tired of that old, boring Youtube app? Iconical lets you make it your own in three quick and easy steps.
Here’s how it works:
1. Select the app you’d like to customize
2. Design your app
3. Add your new icon to the home screen
If you never quite caught on to the whole drawing inside the lines thing, don’t worry. Iconical enables the download of any image for use in your personalized icon. You can even upload your Iconical masterpiece to iCloud for others to use or download other users’ free-hands.
Better yet, the app lets you create your own locked shortcut icons. For example, you can create a contact call icon that allows you to immediately reach your mom, grandma or idk, you’re BFF Jill. But it’s not just for phone calls. Iconical is shortcut compatible with over 250 apps so if there’s a twitter page, skype contact, email or person that you just can’t get enough of, Iconical will make your life a whole lot easier with immediate, customizable access.
Basically everything about this app is awesome. Well, besides the fact that your mom will now be calling you 24/7 from her own icon featuring your most embarrassing childhood photo.
