Nucleo Reviews

One-time pricing is $99 for an individual and includes all 23,000 icons and lifetime updates when more icons are added. It also includes SVG source files. A team purchase is also available at $249 for five users, $349 for 10 users, $599 for 20 users and $999 for 50 users. The team plan also includes the ability to sync projects in DropBox and a unique team management system. Special extended licenses are available for those who want up to 500 unique icons per project instead of the default 250, and the extended license is a requirement if a client wants to use Nucleo's icons in something that is offered for sale where Nucleo "contributes to the core value of the product being sold/shared." It includes other benefits and limitations and costs $2,499. Downloading and using the product on a desktop requires Windows 7+ or Mac OS X 10.9+.
