Dongshadow – an icon set v33
Dongshadow – an icon set v33
Requirements: 4.1 and up
Overview: A beautiful, crispy set of not-exactly-simple icons, accented with dong shadows. The emphasis here hasn’t been on photorealism or consistency, but on looking at the qualities of each and every icon, and then adding an artistic emphasis to that essence. I’ve also added a bunch of delightfully idiotic wallpapers.

To be perfectly honest, this started as a joke and transitioned into another “protest song”, then into something worthwhile and at least halfway back into a joke again. Like with the desaturated themes, it felt to me as if every icon maker had a longshadow pack out, to the point where it just became ridiculous.
Now, I’m not saying there isn’t variation out there. You have your dark shadows, bright shadows, shadows going south east, north west, straight down. You have uneven shadows, muddled shadows, pixellated shadows and shadows that make no sense at all in terms of physics, aesthetics or object/castoff relations.
I’m also not saying that 54 different people cannot produce their individual artistically unique takes on the phenomenon, I’m just saying that if you grabbed the initial offerings from Dave or Will, you’d have been pretty well covered before the remaining 52 came along.
Then again, people want what they want – and if people want to get bent over a barrel, who am I to refuse them a decent looking barrel and a dong to go with it?
I hope you enjoy my Dongshadows.
Please note that as of Jan 11 2016, all developers publishing apps in this marketplace are required to declare whether our apps contain ads of any kind. Because this app does contain links to some of my other work as well the supported launchers, I have chosen to declare that my app contains ads. This app does not contain dynamic or 3rd party ads as you might expect from freemium games, nor does it generate ad revenue by any meaningful interpretation.
Since misrepresenting ad presence violates the Developer Program Policies and may lead to suspension, I have chosen to step cautiously, though. From experience, I fully expect the issue will be judged and enforced by robots.
As is customary, there’s a pretty dashboard, a couple of internal/external wallpapers, links to my social media presences and various interesting online resources. There’s also a fairly robust IconRequest feature.
And, of course, apply-buttons for most of the major launchers. Supported launchers include most of the ones you would expect – these are supported to various degrees. The big ones work well, others may or may not work. Stock launchers typically don’t support icon packs.
– Some new and/or fixed icons
– Completely rebooted style.
– Hundreds of new icons and fixed activity mappings.
– Xperia Home ZenUI launchers now supported (via their own control panels).
– More dong, more shadow.
– Overall silliness increased by a factor of at least two and three quarters.
