"Icy" is a song by Gucci Mane from his album Trap House. It features rappers Young Jeezy and Boo of the group Boo & Gotti.

Icy is a package installer/manager for jailbroken iPhone and iPod Touch, originally created and maintained by Ripdev, which allows users to browse and download applications from a range of sources. Most applications are available to download for free, with some requiring purchase after downloading, including other software created by Ripdev, such as Kate. The applications are downloaded directly to iPhone or iPod Touch and are generally located in the /Applications/ directory, in the same place where "Apple native" applications are located.
The Icy Project was closed on October 24, 2009, and the source code was released under the MIT License. Icy Installer has now been taken over by two development teams, WeAmDev and Infini-Dev.
