Hello! I strongly dislike how every icon is forced to be round/circled on the default pack.
I kinda like how each app can set their own icon and display it as a square or a standalone icon and I'd like to keep it this way if possible.
Unfortunately the only way to change the rounded appearance is to download another icon pack that doesn't force rounded borders and use it instead of the "ASUS UI" icon pack. But I want the default view...
Here's what I mean:
I installed an Icon pack and if an icon isn't specified (Netflix's FAST speed test and Flow Free in this case) it will display the default one, without forcing a circled enclosure. Firefox, Feedly and Google Pictures are customized but aren't inside a circle.
Of course I couldn't find a "Custom Default Icon Pack" because it's illogical... Even though it's exactly what I need.
Does anyone know a way to fix this that doesn't involve installing another launcher?
Removing forced circles on icons on the ZenUI launcher
_jis_Because other than this the launcher works ok (except maybe being unable to set a custom wallpaper as home screen when setting a dynamic wallpaper as lock screen but whatever). I'd rather not purchase a launcher and risk it not getting any updates later (i.e. when Android 11 eventually arrives) and using a free one may come with limited functionality unless you go premium, or come with ads, or with trackers phoning home all the time, or all of these at once. Nova Launcher for instance has a Prime version.
I'm just curious: Why are you refusing to install a third-party launcher when e.g. Nova is definitely better than pre-installed and and gives you complete freedom? I always install it on all my phones, regardless of brand, making me always at home, regardless of Android skin.
asifbarwatiyaYep it's a personal preference. And while you say clean and minimalist, I say boring and inconsistent. It may be the developer's "fault", but just take a look at how Lara Croft GO's icon is displayed:
