Even if one does not like to install a Custom ROM to tweak things around in his Android device, everyone has this fascination of tweaking up icons and designs on the home screen. The tweaking can be having a great wallpaper, adding custom animations to different actions, changing the icons altogether and other renovation. One of the basic things that every new theme has in common is the complete makeover of the icons present. Every time Android gets an upgrade to a new version, it changes the icons of the apps on the home screen because it is those icons that change the entire perception of the device.
