To be honest I really don't like too much uniformity in app icons, particularly when it comes to shape -- it makes things look a little too sterile and generic.
Lollipop's material design "paper cutout" icons was probably my favorite era of stock Android icons.
I do like a consistent design language, though. For example, I think the moonshine icon pack does a great job of making icons that look unified and like they belong together, while allowing them to retain their own branding, color, and subtle design differences.
I use Moonshine. there are so many icons to choose from apart from the stock ones. And they all do a good job of maintaining material guidelines.
You should check out the icon pack Moonshine. It's a really great material theme.
You can apply it through Nova or through theme engine.
Moonshine is a favorite for large, distinguishable icons. I set it up on my parents' or shared devices, along with larger icon labels if necessary.
I'm guessing the icon pack that you are using does not have icons for all the apps that you are using and instead is using the default icons in a box to fit the theme. Try another icon pack.
I use moonshine
Nova, 6 x 6, Subgrid Positioning ON, Card Stack scroll effect.
Wallpaper and Zooper widget templates.
Folder icon is from Moonshine.
The sole icon is a folder of my favorite apps. I've set several Nova gestures to make getting around a bit easier.
Double tap -> Chrome
Swipe up -> Messenger
Swipe down -> Search Apps (never used this before, but I'm finding it really handy.)
Two finger swipe down -> sync for reddit.
Note, the clock/weather widget is part of the ROM I'm using (CM11) but I believe you can get it in the app I just linked above.
This needs to be on there:
Here's an icon pack I just found that looks good:
Mine, Nova Launcher (one page only)
(Edit: Most of the icons are from Moonshine, a few I added manually from various sources.)
Been with this simple layout for a while now. When I got my G recently I set it up from scratch instead of importing, but after playing with a few new things, nothing felt quite right, so I ended up with exactly as if I'd just imported my old layout. Guess I'm a bit set in my ways.
The icon pack is Moonshine and I got the wallpaper from a previous thread.
I've found Moonshine Icon Pack very smooth looking, and similar enough that it's not difficult to identify icons.
FWIW, I'm using Nova Launcher, but that shouldn't matter.
I've got four or five installed that I was trying out, but I ended up setting most of mine to either Moonshine or Viral
I have tried both Moonshine and CandyCons and both of them look great!
'live' calendar icon can be easily added by applying an icon theme that supports it. The one I know and am currently using is Moonshine
>LOVE this but it's a killer when that one app isn't supported. I really like your sense of style though.
I know what you mean! The problem is the 1.4 million and growing apps on the app store.
>If you make a material design set that looks like it was designed by google, that could sit right next to stock Lollipop android icons, just making the non-material design apps material, I would legit drop 5 bucks on that. My 2 cents.
Have you tried Moonshine?
Made in KLWP.

Oreo uses adaptive icons, and Google's adaptive icons have white backgrounds. Personally I've stopped using and uninstalled most Google apps and my app drawer looks great, but anyway...
I don't know of any launchers that can override this. Only the OEM can specify to use non-adaptive icons on the OS-level.
You can however use an icon pack such as Moonshine (with a custom launcher): [link]
You're certain you've enabled this option?
And using the "System" Icon pack?
An icon pack which is similar-ish to stock is Moonshine icon pack. It's a bit more "flat" but I like a lot of their styles.
Choose from these two icon packs, the definitely solved the issue for me. It doesn't mess with icons, it's just the stock picture without totally useless squares or circles around them. Google icons are also back to normal.
Except for the Play Store icon, both icon packs are identical to stock Android 7:
Moonshine (everything is stock! except for Gallery and Play Store. Love it):
MaterialOS (I don't like what it does to Calendar and Calculator, not everything is stock):
Moonshine seems the best choice if you just want the normal, stock unique icons in their normal size without messing around, as they were meant to be.
I personally use the Moonshine icon pack Google Play
It's basically a clean, material theme. It does require a custom launcher like Nova.
My Home Screen
Not sure how it'll look with your theme but it can't hurt to try if you have a custom launcher.
I really like Moonshine Icon Pack. But there are a ton of material design-themed packs, just take a look through the play store
The icon pack is Moonshine, I also have a app called Appdialer and it has an action when I double tap the home screen it come up and can find any app so I don't really even use the app drawer
It's a mixture of mostly Moonshine, and I think a couple of icons are from Blitz, and there are maybe two or three from a Holo icon pack which seems to have disappeared and no longer exists in my installed apps or on the Play store, but it's still on my device. Odd. Anyways, those are the three packs I used, but MOST of them are from Moonshine.
Check out Moonshine for your Icon Theme in Nova.
I'm using a combination of:
Moonshine - Icon Pack
MaterialOS Icon Pack
Marshmallow has all the old stock Google icons, while the other 2 have great material design icons for popular apps like Instagram, Netflix, etc.
Nova Launcher & Zooper Widget. Icons are based off Moonshine Icon Pack with my own pink touch. Wallpaper is from this collection.
Edit: Here are my modified icons. They're admittedly very low resolution but I think they look fine with how small they are. Zooper widget file here
For anyone wanting to do the same thing: [link] is a great material design icon pack
Moonshine. This is the free version, there is a paid one too.
Well, Moonshine comes pretty close, no?
After seeing all those awesome minimalistic Arch Linux setups, I felt like my desktop deserved some love too. Also, this sub made me want to try out Arch as I'm currently in love with Linux.
Moonshine Icon pack, do love it
Moonshine icon pack is the closest to pre-pixel look I know
I am using the icon pack called Moonshine from the Play Store,
I've been using Moonshine for a few years now, I forget how much it was but it cant of been more than like $2.
and the default system ones for some apps
Moonshine on the Dock, Metro Station for the Power Toggles widget above the dock
Moonshine is a nice free alternative to Glim as well.
It's part of the Moonshine Icon Pack.
These icons are pretty great. I currently have all my icons set to a mix of stock and the Moonshine Icon Pack. Here's the things I find myself drawn to in picking custom icons:
Consistency in both style and size. Moonshine is particularly great for both of these, imo, some stock apps look great in material but they just stick out for being too big or too small.
Icon-per-day support for calendar apps. It's a pretty neat function, although I see your preview uses a non-numerical icon so maybe you're not planning support. I've also found it to be sort of a hassle to get it applied in Nova launcher, since it only seems to work if the icon pack is the global default, and if you've made and manual edits to that app (assigned a custom label or manually set icon), then it become immune to icon pack changes unless you reset all Icon data in the launcher. But I jump through those hoops because I really like the effect.
Good options for "generic" icons. Personally, I like all of my icons to be something that sort of captures the app's function, whereas lots of apps just use a logo, and many icon packs just morph that logo to their own style. This leads to me digging through their listings (which is pretty arduous, since it's effectively random when it's sorted alphabetically but any app can have any name) to find the most generic one that I like. On this note, I'd be thrilled to find an icon pack that actually includes a "generic" section sorted out from the rest (similar to how Moonshine groups Google apps at the top and all of their calendar duplicates at the bottom).
To give some of the apps I use where the stock logo doesn't do it for me, I would apply your Weather icon to WeatherUndergound, your Cabinet icon to ES File Explorer, Music would actually look pretty good on Soundhound, News might be nice for WPS Office, Browser I might apply to GPS Status (actually I quite like their stock icon, but this example is more about how I end up re-purposing icons).
As for pricing, well to be honest, for Material Icons, Moonshine is free and that sets a strange standard for me. I mean, I feel a bit guilty about it, but it does impart a "why pay for anything else" feeling. And it sets the bar pretty high for developers/designers like yourself to really match their scale. That said, I have tried my hand at editing some icons or making my own, and even though I'm sure that someone with an actual background in image design and editing can be a lot more efficient about it (since I mostly poke around in GIMP and learn what buttons do as I go), I appreciate that a lot of work goes into this stuff. So I say, charge whatever you think you'd pay for it, and see how it goes. Personally I'm trying to get over myself with the haggling mentality that apps should be practically free, and I'm kind of tired of this "race to the bottom" environment for app economics that's landed us with freemium nonsense and ad-stuffed, data-stealing apps lurking in every corner. I would want to see a good trial version or gallery of your icons (if they were all on your website to browse like they are now, that'd be awesome) before paying, but I'd pay $3 for your style applied to a pretty thorough set.
Simple widget, Google widget, moonshine icon pack [link]
But I reverted some of the apps like Phone and Gmaps to their default icon because I liked them better

Moonshine Icon Pack
I'm using an icon pack called Moonshine, so the only app I have like that is the stock Files app.
Moonshine, pretty nice cross of unique and recognizable.
I'm using Moonshine with Nova Launcher.
I use Moonshine icon pack and a few custom icons for apps that I couldn't find any for.
Moonshine icon pack is probably one of the most popular Material ones, but Long Shadow, Silhouette, and Rondo are all very well designed ones as well.
The clock is a default one in Zooper
The icon pack is Moonshine: Link
Moonshine, I believe.
A mix of Moonshine, Iride UI, and HERACon.

Maybe it was Moonshine?
I use Moonshine. Install it, then go to Themes and select it as an icon pack.
Moonshine - icon pack :).
Black box: Zooper
I love the Moonshine Icon pack, one of the best parts is that if you're using a launcher such as Nova (my personal fav) that can edit the icons of each app, you can change any app that isn't covered by the dev because it includes a ton of other random icons.

As for the clock, I use Clock L which comes with 2 very sleek looking digital and analog widgets.
Clock L: [link]
Those, along with my Feedly widget make up my homescreen which I'm pretty happy with. Will post a screenshot in a sec.
If you're more into calendar widgets, here's a one for Google Cal that goes really well with your icon pack: [link]
Swipe Up for App Drawer
Came here to say the same thing. It's pretty hideous.
EDIT: Here's one that doesn't suck: Moonshine. It's what I happen to be currently using.
EDIT2: Oops. I'm actually running the Flux CM theme not Moonshine. My mistake!
