A little while ago, we posted a review (written by yours truly) of Corvy by Max Patchs here on Android Circle. In that article, I mentioned the other icon pack, Ango, by the same designer. It is, in fact, my number one favorite icon pack of all time. I think it is the best; sorry Zan. Seriously, this pack is unbelievable. Here’s why.
To get this out of the way, I bought Ango a long time ago with my own money. I may sound biased in this article, and I am; everyone is, let’s be honest. The feelings I have for this particular icon pack, however, come from my own personal use of it over many months.
I gave a little bit of history behind Corvy, Ango, and Max Patchs, but here’s a recap. Max Patchs is not only an icon pack designer, but he also makes impressive YouTube videos with beautiful animations about apps. When he first announced Ango, I was very much excited. After a few teases of some of the icons, I was completely hooked. I bought the icon pack a few hours after its release. Right now, it averages a 4.9 out of 5.0.
Week after week, Max has slowly increased the icon count of this app. At the rate of around 100 new icons per week (which in and of itself is astonishing!), Ango has now reached 4,000 icons. Are these Material Design icons? No. Are they beautiful, despite that? You know my answer. YES. One thing that some people enjoy doing (including myself) is simply looking through the many icons in icon packs. It’s really quite satisfying if you are a visual person, surprisingly. Try it out. I think you’ll like it. Ango is an icon pack that is good for “browsing.”
What might be even more important than the number of icons is the coverage of themed icons. There are only seven out of the one hundred and twenty-nine apps on my phone that he hasn’t themed. Even so, I don’t expect them to remain unthemed for long.
In addition, Ango comes with wallpapers. The current count is 47. They’re pretty nice, I’d say. Just like Corvy, Ango comes with widgets, both for Zooper as well as KWGT. These are also visually appealing like the rest of Ango. There are over 30 in total. I myself am not a big widget person, but I know many of you are, so this is an added bonus!
In closing, I really can’t stress enough how unbelievable Ango is. The number of new icons per week that Max puts out, the visual design, and the added bonus of wallpapers and widgets simply make it a no-brainer decision: buy Ango. It’s more than worth it.
