Icons Flycons for Android
XDA member chancellorr presents this nice collection of new icons for your Android device. Flycons collection are made in 100px x 100px resolution and including the following icons: Foursquare, Facebook, Market, Talk, Phone, SMS, Music, Mail, Remote, Music PlayerPro, Camera, Gallery, Browser, Alarm Clock, Weather and Settings.
