Fit for Use
A variety of sizes and densities can be downloaded from this site. Our icon set is also available as a git repository, making it even easier for developers to customize, share, and re-use.
The icons are available under the Apache License Version 2.0. We’d love attribution in your app’s “about” screen, but it’s not required. The only thing we ask is that you not re-sell these icons.
What is Sketch Libraries?
The best design happens when designers collaborate together. With Libraries, designers can now share Symbols across documents and have them update to be always kept in sync.
A Library is just an ordinary Sketch document that contains Symbols which you can then use in any other Sketch document. If you update any of those Symbols in your Library file, documents containing instances of those Symbols will receive a notification telling you that they can be updated. Here you can preview, check, and confirm changes — and by doing so, you can always ensure your documents are using the up-to-date copies of those components.
If you’re working as part of a team with other designers, Sketch’s Libraries have got you covered. Simply place your document somewhere where your colleagues have read-access such as a Dropbox folder, or repository in GitHub, etc, have them add the document to their Libraries in Preferences, and they will have quick and easy access to those Symbols. All whilst still being able to receive any updates made to the file.
