New Heefy’s Icon Set Available
Yet another set of icons surfaces on this site. This time, XDA member Heefy brings us an addition to his already popular GTX-inspired set of icons. This time around he added 48 new icons to encompass many requests and new apps available for our devices. So, if you were only missing that “one” icon for that app to make your device look perfect, you may want to stop by this developer’s thread.
I have the GTX theme installed on my Touch HD. I have had trouble finding a set of icons that go well with the GTX theme so decided to have a go myself. Although GTX inspired they appear to go well with other themes too.
Update 21/05/10. This is the beta set of icons. 21 more icons added. They do not complete the set yet as I am still working on them.
Update 25/05/10. 20 more additional icons added. They appear at the bottom of the preview.
Update 25/05/10. A few more icons added and a tidy uop of the upload package.
Update 26/05/10. 48 More icons uploaded. Mainly Application Icons.
Loads of stuff to do yet so please be patient and have a go yourself in the meantime.
You can find more information on the icons thread.
