iOS Messages App Icon Replacement

I was recently re-arraging my iOS homescreen, and realized just how much the default Messages & Phone icons bother me (which is a lot!), so I decided to play around a bit, to see if I could come up with something that I like better. I accomplished my little project, and came up with what you see here.

Simple, yet good looking. I also believe this fits in better with the rest of Apple's default iOS Icons. It seems like the Messages & Phone icons haven't been thought about since the first version of iOS.

Update: Be sure to check out the @2x version to see the slight texture on the icon.


Sorry I haven't been that active lately here! I've been working on some really cool stuff—Some stuff has launched already (, and some other stuff is still in the works!

Hope to see you around here again soon, but in the meantime, you can follow me on Twitter.
