Organise your iPhone or iPad home screen
with text icon labels and wallpapers.
Mister Icon is an app that allows you to easily add labels/categories/headings to your iOS home screen, in the form of decorative text-based icons. Please visit the About page for more details about what the app does and does not do.
The recent version 2.5 Mister Icon update introduced round icon labels, with two icon sets designed to help you achieve a circular effect! The current 2.6 update has now introduced a third set of round icons as well. Just like all other updates, these ones are free for all Mister Icon users.
“How can this be?” You might be asking. Apple doesn't allow home screen icons to be circles!
Well, you're right! iOS/iPadOS currently does not allow for actual circular icons, but these updates provide a special way to emulate the look of a circular icon. You just need to choose the icon and the colour you like, then choose an icon background colour that will effectively fill in the ‘corners’ of the icon (i.e. the area outside the circle). Then you just need to make sure to use one of the included home screen wallpapers in a matching colour.
This might sound tricky, but it's really quite straightforward, and my app includes examples and more information to show how it all works.
These new round icons can really make your home screen stand out from the pack and I hope you enjoy them!
