Easily use ionicons in your native SDK iOS projects

Build Status

Currently using: Ionicons v2.0.1


The ionicons icon set includes a lot of iOS system icons as well as plenty of handy additions. The great thing about ionicons is it makes the system icons a lot handier and more customizable, while adding more icon options. Also, with ionicons-iOS you can use iOS 7 system icons in your native SDK iOS 5+ projects, so your designs will have a consistent appearance across all OS versions.


For available icons, look at ionicons-codes.h or browse them at the ionicons website.

The available icon names will autocomplete if you’ve included the IonIcons.h header when you type ion_...

Get the font:

UIFont *ionIconsFont = [IonIcons fontWithSize:30.0f];

Make a UILabel with an ionicons icon:

UILabel *label = [IonIcons labelWithIcon:ion_ionic size:20.0f color:[UIColor blackColor]];

Render an ionicons icon in a UIImage:

    UIImage *icon = [IonIcons imageWithIcon:ion_ionic
                                  iconColor:[UIColor redColor] 
                                  imageSize:CGSizeMake(90.0f, 90.0f)];

Installation Step 1:

CocoaPods is great:

  1. add pod 'ionicons' to your Podfile
  2. pod install

Non-CocoaPods is easy too:

  1. Drag the folder ‘ionicons’ with the source files into your project
