If you’ve built a Power App, it’s highly likely that you have explored Power Apps default library of Icons and used them. Whilst the list of useable icons is consistently growing and do include adjustable properties such as fill and outline colour, they are quite boring, standard and not out to impress your users.

However, there are other designs currently trending – and you should definitely explore your options before publishing your next Power App.
