Disseminate Your Themes with a Icon Pack Shell App
In addition to rooting, modifying, and otherwise hacking our mobile devices, many take to modifying the visuals as well. This can range from installing various themes to playing around with various launchers and more.
There is an almost endless supply of available themes in our Android Themes forum, and then there’s the whole awesomeness of Themer. But not every theme that you could possibly want has been neatly packaged for ease of installation. And if you’ve ever manually installed an icon pack, you know how much of a pain this can be.
XDA Senior Member Blaze wanted to do something about this. To that end, he created a template icon pack to help themers easily package up their icon packs for easy end-user installation. Blaze’s template icon pack works with all the popular launchers (Go, Aviate, Nova, Apex, ADW, Holo, and more), and it supports Android 2-3 through 4.4.2. Blaze also shows you how to get your icons integrated into the template icon pack in just a few steps.
If you’re a themer and you want to make it easy for your users to install your icon packs, head over to the original thread and give this a try!

One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
