But I am tired of my Apple mistress, always promising more than she delivered, always teasing but never delivering.
I yearn for something new and exciting, something useful and intuitive, and iOS7 was just the final nail in the coffin for me. Goodbye iPhone, it was fun while it lasted but you are just a mess these days, you have lost your way and me with it.

Here are some of the most inspirational and creative Android icon designs I have found so far. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have. Hopefully soon I will be enjoying these new icons styles on my very own Android device, here’s hoping!
