User reviews of Simple Text-Text Icon Creator
Ideaal voor het maken van minimalistische icons voor een strakke desktop. Ehm, homescreen bedoel ik.

Привык я к текстовым иконкам на докбаре. Теперь не надо их фотошопом делать.

Hands down, fantastic (and even more impressive considering it still works after more than a year without a single update). Simple Text is the best: a not overly-complicated, handy, well-made and well-functioning app that makes even the "raw" Android so much more easy on the eyes. I love having a simple and effective tool to change the look of my phone and tablet without launchers or heavy widgets. Kudos! (Hope you guys will one day return to this progect, though. As great as it is, some minor tinkering and adding features won't hurt. Now that PRO/donate version is a different story: it really-REALLY needs several good fixes.)
