Icon Pack Studio Launcher Support

Support for 3rd party is limited because of the Google Play Store policy

More Details About What Happened

In October 2022, Google changed its policies to forbid most apps on the Play Store from installing APKs. This has forced us to limit the functionality of our app, Icon Pack Studio (IPS), which previously used this capability to generate installable icon packs.

Since all the most popular launchers on the Play Store accept only icon packs in the APK format, it is now impossible for IPS to support any other launcher except Smart Launcher, which features a native implementation.

We contacted Google for a solution, but we never received a final response. As a result, we had no choice but to release a version of Icon Pack Studio that does not allow users to export icon packs in the APK format.

How to Continue Using Icon Pack Studio

There are 2 options available to continue using Icon Pack Studio:

  1. Change your launcher to Smart Launcher, which is developed by our team. This option is recommended as it provides the best possible experience with Icon Pack Studio.

  2. Install Icon Pack Studio Exporter, a plugin app that restores the ability to export icon packs created from Icon Pack Studio. This will allow you to continue using Icon Pack Studio with any of the previously supported launchers.

Icon Pack Studio Exporter only works with genuine versions of Icon Pack Studio.

We want to express our gratitude to all of our users for their continued support and understanding during this time.

In the meantime, we encourage our users to stay tuned for updates and to continue exploring the many features that Icon Pack Studio has to offer.
