Shapeless icon packs have been dominating the icon pack industry for quite a while now, and with hundreds of available ones, it’s not surprising that choosing the best one can be quite a task. While this ultimately comes down to your personal preference, there are some offerings that are definitely worth giving a try. One of these is Cornie Icons, which impresses on pretty much every level. Continue reading to find out what makes Cornie so special, and why over 10 thousand people chose it over other similar icon packs.
Cornie is a beautifully designed Material Design icon pack, the main selling point of which is the immense amount of detail, massive collection of themed apps, and unique look. Developed since late 2015, Cornie has had tons of time to mature, making it one of the most robust and well-designed offerings currently available. You just can’t go wrong with it.
What I really like about Cornie is the unique approach Patryk Goworowski shows in each icon. Instead of taking the easy road, Patryk experiments with meaningful designs which not only perfectly illustrate the function of the app, but also make your home screen stand out no matter what kind of setup you create. Patryk tries to avoid the boring white glyph on a background approach, which is a relief. The super-detailed designs add another dimension to the icons, making them really pleasing to the eyes. Cornie pushes the limits of Material Design, while still keeping everything coherent and beautiful. There are tons of clever design tricks tucked away in some of the icons, which I found really interesting as a designer. Finally, thanks to the thought-out design, the icons look awesome on pretty much any background.
Another great thing about Cornie is how many additions there are, except for just app icons. You’ll find generic icons, dock icons in two colours, tons of folder icons, app drawer shortcuts, a massive catalogue of colour variations and alternative icons, as well a collection of special easter egg icons.
Moving on to the numbers, Cornie continues to impress with over 4200 hand-crafted icons and even more activities. If that isn’t enough, the developer is super quick to theme icons from requests, which you can send via the free tool in the dashboard, and 14 major OEMs’ apps are covered, saving you the hassle of manually applying icons on your home screen. Updates come every week with about 50-60 new icons from user requests.
Now for the small stuff. In addition to icons, Cornie offers 42 beautiful wallpapers, a handful of cool KWGT widgets/KLWP wallpapers, support for pretty much every launcher out there, dynamic calendar icons, Muzei support, a free icon request tool, quick apply functionality, and even a FAQs section to help beginners with using the icon pack. The intuitive dashboard also lets you browse all icons or search for specific ones.
Checking every box I could possibly think of, Cornie can be recommended to any Android customization fan out there. With a huge catalogue of beautifully designed icons, regular updates, fast support, and an awesome dashboard, this icon pack has quickly become one of my favourites, and I hope it will become one of yours too.
