    Hey guys! Anyone ever want to be able to use Sense and BlinkFeed but also customize stuff? Like icons? Well there's an app for that which doesn't require root! I don't know how new it is, or how old, but its called Beautiful Icon Styler.
    Just thought I'd share for proof..

    It doesnt change the icons in the drawer though. It might in a future update.

    That is a non-issue. Im not seeing an option to remove app names either though. is that possible? or is this icon modification only?

    I'm not sure. I think its just the icon modification.

    Whilst this needs some work, I thank you for bringing this to my attention- it is definitely something I have been after. I note that in the app description it says The app only style the home screen icons; icons in app drawer stay the original- so I doubt any upgrades..nor do I think Android would let you go that far on a stock launcher.

    Android is designed to be customized. HTC's launcher may not, though, so the issue wouldn't be with Android but with the Blinkfeed launcher. The app likely wouldn't change launcher icons due to the countless different launchers out there. Simply too much work I'd think.

    But this looks like a cool app. I'll play around with it when I get my phone for sure.

    Whilst I am aware of this, my point is the launcher icons may be able to change, but I doubt this can go to the extent of the icon drawer, on any stock launcher. I agree with you, there seems to be too much work involved and I think it is best to just go a minimal launcher- heck what's the use of adding in additional icon for just the home screen?

    All in all good idea, just turn it to a launcher...in my opinion!
