I am proud to share these superb 10 icon sets or packs that you’d love to check out before you truly decide that you’ll start out from bare foot progress.

This may not be a good start for you if you are looking for free contents, but if you are careful enough to spend $25, what you get in this package are 200 Android icons that are highly customizable and friendly. Each icon comes in 4 different sizes and 14 colors, and works perfectly with almost all Android versions. The set includes the 200 icons in .png frmat, but you also get .svg, .eps, and .ai files for extra resource and flexibility. With so much compatibility, flexibility, and endless possibilities, I’m pretty sure you’d end up saving coins for this set.
The Retina display of Apple in its new line of devices are not only highly demanded, but the technology itself also demands more from developers like you. This new icon pack comes with Retina-ready icons that you can also use on Android platforms, depending on what kind of design pops up to your mind. The free version comes with only 200 icons, but if you are willing to pay $75, you get a real good collection of icons available in scalable vector formats (.eps), .png, .psd, and .ai for absolute customization and resourcefulness. Moreover, you also get these icons in two Holo versions (dark and light), and all are iOS 7-ready if you’d ask.

The set is absolutely free to use, and thankfully, a master file is also offered within the package and in the form of a .psd file. There’s not a scalable format that you can use further, but with this generous but unique icon set, you can surely progress faster.
As the name of the set suggests, what you’ll get in this free package are icons that are highly simple, minimalistic, and rare. Up to 108 icons included, each icon comes in a colourable grey fashion in a 32×32 .png file format. We are not really happy that there’s not a master file or a vector format or even bigger sizes, but if you are looking for rare but free icons suitable for websites, security niches, shopping carts, user profiles, configurations, WordPress, then you’ve come to the right market.

Design with the programmers, designers, and developers in mind, the icon pack offered here includes 160 icons, all familiar for those who’ve been using iOS devices because these are actually toolbar icons.
