1. Revolution Icons
There’s been a lot of talk lately about Google mandating round icons for Android. We don’t know for sure how that will end up, but if you want to try the circular look, Revolution is an excellent icon pack. Over 1,500 icons have been recreated with the circle theme in mind. Apps that don’t have custom icons are automatically converted to circles. The icon pack is free and has no ads or permissions.

2. News Pro
News Pro is a unique news reader from the Microsoft Garage team. The app delivers a customized selection of news stories based on the networks you choose to use. If you tweet a lot about football you’ll find stories about the NFL. You can tap on a topic to see more stories and customize the news by tapping “see more” or “see less like this.” If there’s a specific website you don’t like you can prevent it from showing up in the app.
