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.

Thank you for your kind words. I'm glad you find a good use for our app.

Does what it says, but has some downsides

The fact that the shortcuts don’t have notification badges was a downside I didn’t consider but understand, but the shortcut remaining open in your app switcher is one that should be fixed if possible. The brief delay in opening the app is also a small price to pay for custom icons. All in all, it’s good but not perfect.
