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).

Small speed improvement to app scanning.
Crash fix when using older versions of iOS.
Ratings and Reviews
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.
The free version works great but...
I would give five stars for the way the app works. It is very user friendly and you can use your own website URLs in addition to the thousands in their database.
But: #1 there are very few websites that I visit more than a few times and thereby need to have them on my home screen as icons. #2 there are only a very few Icons on their database that I can used to replace replace the ones that I keep on my home screen. (perhaps six or seven of the 50 or 60 that use)... for those two reasons I would give perhaps one or two stars. So far the overall rating, as an average, my Rating is three stars.
I hope the Developers will find a way to replace the apps that are bundled in my iPhone to start with, with the great icons that I would like to create for myself.

Thank you for your review. Have you tried the Iconical App Store share extension to check if some of your apps are supported? It provides a quick way to check if an app is supported and if not supported it'll send us an email to check it out. Every app has to be manually downloaded and checked by us for support.
To use it, search your app in the App Store, then press the share button and select Iconical.
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.
