Simple Text For Android Lets You Make Icons Out Of Text


Simple Text For Android is a free (ad-supported), easy-to-use tool that allows you to create simple yet snazzy text-based icons with a few taps. Particularly useful for creating dock icons for home replacement apps the likes of ADW Launcher, LauncherPro and GO Launcher EX, the app lets you choose from two default styles (single and two-line text) and create your own templates. Icons created with Simple Text look surprisingly good as dock icon replacements, giving it a unique, elegant look.

In the two-line text style, the editing interface is divided into two tabs, one for each line of text.

The three buttons beside the text input field let you alter the alignment of the chosen text, change its font and choose its color from a color palette. You can even copy a selected color from one template/icon and paste it to another. The sliders below allow you to adjust the selected text’s position, size and more.


You can grab the app for free from the Android Market via the provided link or QR code.
