Icon Pack Studio FAQ

Usage

Why do I need a launcher to apply icon packs created with Icon Pack Studio?

Every Android device is distributed with a built-in launcher. However, built-in launchers generally do not provide support for icon packs. If your built-in launcher does not support the icon pack format used by Icon Pack Studio, then you won't be able to use any of the icon packs created or downloading using Icon Pack Studio.

The problem can be solved by downloading a third party launcher from Play Store. Third party launchers provide extra features and in some cases, they can also improve your device resources usage.

Can I use Icon Pack Studio with my launcher?
