Have an icon that stands out too much on your home screen? Simply make your own shortcut icon for that app and hide the original icon (Supported apps only).

What makes us different to other home screen shortcut apps?

Most apps need to send the information for your icon to their servers to generate. Iconical works 100% on your device.
Some apps state that your icons will stop working if you delete their app. Not with Iconical. Everything needed by your icon is embedded within the icon itself (Unless you are using locked icons).

Previously Brilliant

Over a number of years and a number of versions of iOS, this app has helped me to customise my phone no end. However, it is struggling these days. Often the app doesn't open and when it does, rarely can I complete the process of adding something to my homescreen.

Developer Response ,

I'm sorry you are having trouble. There's no known problems with the latest iOS 13.3.1 Can you please drop me an email at so we can understand what problems you are having with creating home screen icons?

Often doesn’t work

Easy to create icons, but they only seem to work intermittently. Sometimes clicking an icon opens 5 other apps all at once, but not the one you clicked on. Very frustrating.

Developer Response ,

Hi, Please check what version of iOS you have (Settings->General->About) as earlier versions of iOS 13 had this problem but Apple fixed it in iOS 13.3 so please update to that and it should work. Let us know how you get on.
