App 4: TrueiOS - Icon Pack

Turn an Android Into an iPhone 19429.jpg

I included TrueiOS because it is a popular download, but users have had various levels of success using it. Currently, the 1 star rating matches the 5 star rating, so success with this icon app is not guaranteed. There aren't many details regarding this app, but the description does state that it mimics the feel of iDevices, and it uses icons that are designed to look like almost exact replicas of what is found within iOS and on the Apple App Store. It should also be noted that this app does not with the launchers Nova, Apex or ADW... instead, the icons from this app need to added manually.
