WizIconizer Lets You Easily Change the Icons in Samsung TouchWiz ROMs
The graphical stylings in Samsung TouchWiz UI are quite different from what we see on most other Android devices. The loud and colorful UI is generally either a love-it-or-hate-it affair. But luckily, those looking for something new can easily improve the look of their ROM in just a few simple steps.
One of the easiest ways of changing the overall feel of an OS is replacing the stock icons. XDA Forum Member sabeersas created an application that is capable of doing this for you in just a few seconds. WizIconizer uses CSCAppResource icon packs to change your icons. And if you find yourself bored of your new icons, you can easily revert back to the stock icons.
In order to use WizIconizer, you will obviously need a rooted device running a TouchWiz-based firmware. So far, the app has been successfully tested on Samsung devices running Android 4.1.2 and greater. The app is still in at a very early stage of development, so there aren’t that many features. However, the developer promises to add some new features in future releases.
If your TouchWiz icons look boring and you would like to change the current look of your OS, head over to application thread and give WizIconizer a try.
