So what is this?
To put it simply, it's an app icon designer tool, to help you make your iOS 14 Home screen look beautiful with custom icons. Also, "Mycons" = "my icons"... get it??? Right... moving on...
How does it work?
Design your custom icons in the "Icon Studio" section. Think of a Mycons icon as being made up of 2 components. A background, and an overlayed symbol/logo. Design your custom background with colors, gradients, photos, etc. Then, select a logo or symbol to place somewhere over it. Export your beautifully aesthetic app icons from Mycons, then use the Shortcuts app to create your beautifully aesthetic Home Screen!
You can also buy premium theme packs in the marketplace, if you want. They all come with free iPhone wallpapers too!
Why is this better than buying icon packs?
Exponential flexibility! When you spend $7-$20 on other premium icon packs, you only get a limited set of icons. If the pack doesn’t have one with the Pinterest logo... how do you know your new pretty icon is for the Pinterest app? Mycons works differently. You still get beautiful custom icons, but you can stamp them with your pick from thousands of brand logos and symbols.
Added the missing TikTok logo to the symbols collection :)

This fairly easy to use app has a lot of potential. Making custom icons with the icon studio within the app is fast and easy. The only downside to the process is having to dig in to your phone’s settings to actually apply the new icon, however this is not the fault of the app. I hope apple makes it easier to customize your widgets and icons in a future update. But until that happens, Mycons is a great tool that allowed me to customize my phone and make it more personal to me.
Crazy levels of customization - made me feel like a designer
I mainly played around with the icon creator m, figuring this would offer some basic customization options and I’d come away disappointed buuuut wow I’m impressed. The crazy number of icons to choose from and ways to play around are amazing. Highly recommend downloading and diving in to see what you can make.
This is the one I’ve been waiting for! Very easy to use and much better icon design options than anything else I’ve tried. The marketplace themes look really nice too. I bought “Scribble on Black” and my home screen looks amazing! Thank you for making this! 5 stars
