Review: Customize your icons and wallpapers with CocoPPa

Download cute icons and wallpapers with this frilly app.

CocoPPa is an app that lets you customize the icons and wallpapers on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Its aesthetic is kawaii -- the cute-centric Japanese style that's been taking the world by storm -- so download accordingly. If your main complaint about your device's interface is that it's not adorable enough, this is the app for you.

CocoPPa lets you browse its content without an account, but if you want to download, you'll need to either sign up with your e-mail address or log in with your Facebook, Twitter, or Tencent Weibo information. The app lets users both download content and share content that they've created with other users -- and the ability to follow other users gives the app a social networking component. CocoPPa users can download wallpapers, icons, and sets of matching wallpapers and icons. The icons are redesigned versions of the icons for some of the most popular apps; for example, we downloaded a Facebook icon featuring the familiar white Facebook logo but with a striped, patterned background. The icons don't replace your existing icons -- they're simply shortcuts that launch your existing apps -- so feel free to download, experiment, and delete as you like. The app's interface is a little cluttered and there are more than a few ads, but in general CocoPPa is easy to navigate. Overall, we think that CocoPPa is a fun option for users who like custom icons and wallpapers, provided you have a penchant for cuteness.

CocoPPa installs and uninstalls without issues.
