ThaPhlash has been a well-known character in the Android customization world and for good reason. The work he kicks out is both high-quality and just plain creative. Now ThaPhlash is back, at least his icon pack RANDOM is back on Google Play after three years of getting the Google ban hammer. ThaPhlash gave his Google+ followers an overview of RANDOM and why it was booted off of Google Play.
Well, it seems 2017 is gonna be good because guess what? After been suspended for 3 years the Google Play team has decided to give it another chance! (Google has been surprising me a lot lately)
A bit of history for those who don’t know:
In early 2014 I made a special icon pack that was gonna mirror my phone homescreen and change the users icon style every other day, depending on what I was using. This mostly came about because there’s over 750 icon packs in my collection and simply could not make every single one a standalone app.
That project was well received and really built up a community of themer enthusiast like I never seen before. I had no idea just how much ppl would enjoy having their icons on auto-pilot and waking up to a surprise every few days.
But then something weird happened. Because of the frequent updates I was basically getting my app reviewed every day by the Google robots, really increasing my chances at the Russian roulette (not to mention my price was also random fluctuating between 199.00$ to 9.99$)
Sometimes I push things too far, I know…
So after some discussion with the Google Team we came to an agreement that I would be careful from now on.
So to celebrate this turn of events I’ll be uploading tha fireworks icon pack to it for the new year, and want to welcome all of you who already invested you hard earn cash into that app to enjoy its return!
RANDOM is now available to purchase on Google Play and for the $7.49USD price tag, it’s really a great deal. Having your home screen change every few days for you is pretty damn cool and ThaPhlash just makes some of the coolest customization apps out there.
