I select the font, the colors, the gradient...etc. but when I click to save it, it crashes. I tried a number of times but the app just shuts down, losing what I just created.

Down to 1 star because support/update seems to be dead. Was one of my top UI customization app before I upgraded my phone. Keeps crashing on Android Pie. Please update Dev. This is the only app that offers custom Text icons which makes it kinda special.

The jury is not out yet. I love the idea of this app but I have not yet actually been able to make an icon that is usable on my Samsung Galaxy S8. I'm assuming that it's not compatible with the stock device.
