    Apple introduced this in iOS 10.3 and while this is going to please a very narrow group, it is going to be a big deal to some. With that being said, I thought it might be nice to have a collected list of apps that offer this as well as maybe a list of requests. Perhaps we will see more apps offering this if there are enough voices.

    Currently have option to change Icon:

    MLB
    NHL
    Narwhal (I paid for no ads, can someone confirm this is not a paid feature?)
    Pitch (Thanks njlx2016)
    Overcast (Premium subscribers only.)

    Requested:

    Calendars 5 (Will consider for next major release.)
    Fantastical

    Not sure if MLB is the At Bat app but it definitely has it. Love being able to change the icon to the Nationals Curly W!

    Would love it if we could change the Fantastical icon somehow to include the date i.e. stock calendar app.

    If you select dark mode in the Pitch app, the home screen icon changes with it.

    I'm betting more apps will use this, unless there are restrictions on what it can do (i.e. my wish for Fantastical to change icons based on date). Some things have been restricted to Apple/stock apps.

    This new feature does not allow the app to dynamically change like that so no, Fantasitcal can't do that (COME ON APPLE.) Maybe they can eventually. About the closest they could come to that is to upload a different icon for every day and let you do it manually. :|

    Ahh well that's different. Thanks

    But I think being able to pick from different icons for apps would be fun.

    Looking on my NHL app, somebody knows why can't I use Montreal Canadiens logo as my app icon? Almost all teams here, but Habs. Come on...

    The teams had to agree to allow their logo to be used, and apparently Montreal chose not to participate.

    Seems like if we can set up custom speed dial icons with Workflow, app icons should be able to as well.
