by: Joe HindyAugust 25, 2014

the1dynasty icon packs
Icon packs have always been popular. Most mainstream launchers support them and they provide a cheap and unique way to customize your device. When we first thought about doing this list, we thought about doing individual icon packs. Unfortunately (or perhaps, fortunately), there are hundreds of amazing icon pack apps out there so instead, we decided to showcase the best icon pack developers. Each of them have multiple packs to choose from. Enjoy!

GSeth icon packsGSeth

[Price: Varies]
First up is an icon dev named GSeth. Included in GSeth’s repertoire are some fun packs like Circlons and Viby. The icons themselves are insanely highly rated and most present with a more sophisticated and minimal look than many others. GSeth does do some interesting ones though, like Rugo which is a crumpled paper and dirt style which looks awesome. To see GSeth’s collective work, click the Google Play button below.

kovdev icon packsKovdev

[Price: Varies]
Kovdev is a unique developer. S/he doesn’t have too many icon packs but it seems like whatever Kovdev releases gets put in the headlines. As one of the few devs that have had an icon pack go viral, you can imagine what kind of quality you’re looking at. The big ones by Kovdev are Nox, Domo, and Lumos. Nox is sharp and modern while Lumos is softer and muted and Domo is a marriage of complexity and simplicity. All of them have nearly 2000 icons and there are others by Kovdev if you want to check them out.

RyanMKelly icon packsRyanMKelly

[Price: Varies]
RyanMKelly is next and you may remember his work from Umbra which garnered a significant amount of popularity a while back. RyanMKelly’s icons generally have a more minimalistic feel and are often two-tone with sharp colors and shadows. He also does wallpapers and custom Zooper widgets as well.

Samantha Conner icon packsSamantha Conner

[Price: Varies]
Samantha Conner isn’t the most flashy icon pack dev on this list but she does feature a lot of variety and a lot of baseline kind of stuff for those who don’t want to get all crazy. Some packs inclue various solid colors like red, pink, white, black, and orange as well as some stuff like Sense 5, Phlats, and Pushy which are a little more unique and flashy than the monotone ones.

Samer Zayer icon packsSamer Zayer

[Price: Varies]
Samer Zayer features a little more out of the box thinking while still staying in popular designs. You can find highly rated glass, flat, neon, paper, and brushed metal icon packs that have all garnered a number of downloads and high reviews from users. Most of the icon packs have well over 1000 icons and we especially liked Samer’s glass icons. Many of the icons come in the form of theme packs so you’ll need a third party launcher like Apex or Nova but you usually need a launcher like that in order to use icon packs anyway!

Stealthychief icon packsStealthychief

[Price: Varies]
Stealthychief has a number of themes and icon packs out there for a variety of platforms including most launchers, GO Keyboard, and icon packs. Stealthychief generally goes with more obscure stuff like the Aloha icon pack which adds a bit of tropical flair to your icons. However, there is a selection of monotone icons in a couple of colors as well as more popular designs like metal, gold, wood, platinum, and others. Browsing through Stealthychief’s app list is a veritable crap shoot of styles and ideas and that’s what makes it so enjoyable.

tha phlash icon packsTha PHLASH

[Price: Varies]
Tha PHLASH is one of the most iconic (get it?) icon pack developers out there and it’s because most of his packs are ridiculous and memorable. You can buy Tha PHLASH’s icons two ways. There is the Google Play collection (click the button below) or you can go to his official icon website to pick them up there too. They are some flashy and sophisticated icons and would do well to fit any theme.

the1dynasty icon packsthe1dyansty

[Price: Varies]
Last and certainly not least on this list (for right now anyway) is the1dynasty. There are a few really good icon packs worth checking out including the1Lucent pack but there are also CyanogenMod themes you can check out too if you need those. One of the more interesting apps is the Icon Pack Template that gives future icon pack devs a nice, usable template to use to make good icon pack apps.

Wrap up

If we forgot an awesome icon dev (and chances are that we did), please let us know about them in the comments below and we’ll consider adding them to the list!

  • Father Dante

    Vertumus is currently my favorite. No too many packs, but very well done.

    • kolyamba

      yeap. i like it too (especially this one https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.vertumus.velur )

      • Arjit Mehra

        I’m rocking the ELUN Icon pack! Love it!Great dev.

    • JosephHindy

      Thanks for the recommendation! I can only do so much hunting and searching and these lists get updated frequently with suggestions from you guys (let’s face it, finding the best is a community effort, right?). I’ll take a look at Vertumus and KXNT (from another comment) and see what I can do :)

      • Jorge Morales Soto

        Check for djskarpia., he just have like 4 icon packs but they’re always updated and currently have 1500+ icons. Plus the apps that doesn’t have an icon are masked with the same style so it looks like any other icon and the guy everytime he can works on your request. I personally like the cyrcle and stock ui. Check it out, it’s worth it.

      • Gato Mafioso

        A few of the devs you mentioned (won’t pick them out) could be removed and replaced by Pure Designs, djskarpia, Vertumus, and KXNT. All of these provide regular updates and put out excellent packs. I’m an icon pack connoisseur :D

        • Edward Bernays

          You are 100% correct. djskarpia Balx pack is *hard* to top.

  • MasterMuffin

    Just today I was looking for good icon packs. Coincidence? I think not! #illuminati #nothingisreal

    On a serious note, I’m currently using 1-bit icon pack and it’s awesome :)

    • JosephHindy

      I was paid to tell you that you’re being crazy. Seriously crazy.

      Stop asking questions. Knee caps and baseball bats. Keep quiet.

      Shhhhhh. Let it go.


      • MasterMuffin

  • Neeraj Deval

    KXNT is also great.. His free Glasklart, and the legendary Minimal UI alongwith Click UI, Pop UI and Dash UI..

    • elma

      i have and Love click ui tho

    • Yahren

      KNXT is the best, all of his packs are completeness and pixels perfect with successful style. I’m a big fan. Click UI and Pop UI are irreplaceable for me.

    • Will

      +1 for KXNT.

    • Francisco Garcia

      I have Dash UI on my phone, and it’s great!

    • knxtvreetmus

      I don’t see how this article can be considered credible without mention of Kxnt or Vertemus.

  • Jonathan Piron

    What about Vertumus ?! I tried most of the icon packs designer listed above, but my favorite packs are always from Vertumus ! – BTW, Icon packs from Arandompackage are also awesome, despite having only a few hundreds icons.

  • Alex James Simon

    Yes, Vertumus, I have bought Elun and Cryten by him. Currently using Elun, probably my favorite icon pack I’ve bought.

    • Arjit Mehra

      I too :D

  • Bruno

    Vertumus is underrated

  • Stefano Cirigliano

    What is with xonyx ? Really talented andò Refocus is just awesome.

  • Ishaan Malhotra

    No kxnt?

  • Jamal

    vertumus!!! each of his icon pack has 2300+ icons themed, he updates every one of them regularly every week, and his icons are insanely aesthetic (not undermining the other listed here though)

  • Colby Devereaux

    I love Erik Reyerson and Vertumus

  • Angel Zapata

    You forgot Spiderflystudios.com

  • https://plus.google.com/u/0/109020499010364356572/ Nitish Saxena

    wt*, no Binod Ray??


  • http://adueppen.github.io/ A. Dueppen

    Kovdev is a he, by the way, it’s Dave Kover

  • FranchisePlayer

    DCiconZ is one of my favorites. Lots (4,800) of high quality icons and wallpapers. Plus it’s free. Works with multiple launchers too.

    • Ricardo A. Fragoso


  • Preben Nielsen

    Binod Ray makes some great icon. My phone and tablet are exclusively set up using his Plain iconpack.

  • Mystery Man

    Minimal UI recently had a huge update and looks better than those last 3 listed (ง’̀-‘́)ง

  • AndroidBrian

    Belle UI

  • Hobie Helbich

    Vertumus (Viktor vucinic) is the best one out there, IMHO. His packs all have 2000+ icons, plus he pushes updates every single week, has tons of awesome wallpapers, and he responds to emails instantly. He is super active on g+ and personally thanks everyone who compliments him. He’s an awesome Dev, and also an awesome guy. He should be at the top of this list.

  • Maximilian Keppeler
  • crutchcorn

    My personal favorite is Squigle

  • thomas sim

    Still love Nox by kovdev after few months usage.

  • Waqas Hussain

    its all nice with Flat UI

  • Andrew

    Is there any that deal with space?

  • Ocab19

    Vertumus is my favourite icon developer. Always reachable through Google +, with weekly updates to most of his packs and beautifully designed apps(and icons of course). Prices are usually around a buck for more than 2000 icons per pack.

  • andrew

    I think STARK could have made the list

  • Pete Wilson

    Belle UI would be one of my favourites!

  • Ricardo A. Fragoso

    DCINONZ dev should be there!.I’ve never seen such a large, styilish and complete icon package ever!

  • David Wilson

    Vertumus is a hugely talented icon pack creator with some great original packs such as Velur, Cryten, Elun and many more. I’m shocked that you didn’t include him!!

  • Thomas

    Moonshine is pretty good

  • GJV

    Kovdev FTW. Love his work.

  • michael kinsey

    My personal favorite is Andrew Gallagher and Allen Pender. They run Double A Design these guys are very talented

  • http://knowledgeflow.in Knowledge flow

    Interactive……but we follow flat color UI design and icons.

  • Brandon Jury

    Moonshine is my favourite icon pack, period. Dev: Valiant Pixels :)

  • cue

    Seriouslycrazy aka, Andrew Gallagher and, allen penders’ Double A Designs.

    And most def Vertumus

  • Elroy Dsouza

    How has Vertmus not been included in this list? His Velur and Cryten packs are some of the neatest and most expansive icon packs available. From this list, I like Kovdev’s the best and I am gonna try out Nox soon.

  • Mick Collingwood

    I personally like Hooolm’s icon packs. Smoke and Glass, Freehand, Circlemod and lots more.

  • Samyak

    I feel vertumus is the best!

  • Địpạk Pặrmậr


    Sunshine Icons
    i think this icon pack is much better then all of above

  • motoridersd

    I personally use a combination of Moonshine and 8 Bit

  • Saty

    vertumus & dev froam

  • riffraff8

    I love all the work KXNT does, definitely a favorite. I’ve also been using this cubes theme recently: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.caliber8.hexx – It doesn’t have the wealth of icons some of these sets have, but I get updates often for it, and the dev has always responded quickly to my requests for new icons. Will be checking out some of the other sets mentioned on here for sure, thanks for all the great suggestions!
