Create your own icons on your Home Screen using Iconical.

Easily customise your home screen with your own icons or create useful shortcut icons that perform some of your commonly used actions.

Lock your shortcuts to stop people using your apps.


Do you want a faster way to make a call without having to find their contact? There's nothing faster than a contact call icon on your home screen.

Do you Skype the same person frequently? Create a home screen icon that will open Skype and call that person automatically.

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).

-Create shortcut icons for 85,000+ supported apps
-Create shortcut actions for 250+ supported apps
-Lock your icons to stop other people using your apps
-Edit your icon by drawing, rotating, zooming
-Download any image to use in your icon
-Share your icon with friends for them to use

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).

Not bad but could use some variety.

Just a note it would be very nice to see support for more popular apps specifically gaming like for an example pocket Mortys and not 1000 links to Snapchat that I don’t even have o.O support for more apps would definitely get a 5 star rating! This is the app for people that want to change their icon skins without the usual bookmark stall.

Hi, Each app has to be manually downloaded and checked for support. I have looked at Pocket Mortys for you and you can make a shortcut using the URL pocketmortys:// if there are any more you would like me to look at, just give me a shout.

I discovered this app a year or two ago, after one of its competitors did not update their software to the latest iOS version.
(I use this in conjunction with Launcher program - Using them for different features).

This is the best app that I’ve found for creating standalone shortcuts. The last upgrade, which really increased the Library of available shortcuts, is great!

I use it as a shortcut to several different programs. But the single biggest thing I use it for is to open a blank email that is pre-addressed (to myself).

When I get to work on Monday morning, I typically have anywhere from 5 to 15 emails that I’ve sent myself over the weekend!
(New ideas or reminders about things)

All it takes is pushing one button on my home screen to bring up that blank, pre-addresses e-mail.

FIXED! yea! share extension fixed!

developer response is fast! using share in the app store on an app to more directly get this iconical app to work to make a shortcut on a particular app is better than waiting forever for all possible shortcut-able apps to load in this app. thanks!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I have fixed this issue and you should see version 2.2.3 hitting the App Store within the next few days. It would be awesome if you could update this review once you have the bug fix. Thanks
