Hi everyone! I'm brand new to the Android community as I just upgraded from a BlackBerry Curve to the HTC EVO 4G - and love it!
I've been tinkering with it for a couple of days and decided on using Launcher Pro. I didn't really know what this was when I installed it - only that it would add some UI features (more screens, etc.). However, still being a newbie at customizing my EVO's UI - I thought I'd post here for some help.
First, could someone clarify the difference between an app, shortcut & widget?
1) After switching to Launcher Pro, I don't seem to be able to add widgets I had under the standard HTC launcher - like favorite contacts (a vertical widget strip in which you can place contact favorites' pics & dial from). Also missing are a digital clock and weather widget. Is there anyway to use the HTC widget with Launcher Pro? If not, where would you suggest I find some good ones?
2) I've downloaded Launcher Pro Icons - from the app store. I was hoping to find some 3D app icons like these:
but unfortunately none like these were included. Can anyone tell me where I can get 3D icons like these for my apps? WOuld I just download and icon set and then activate it -or would I have to edit each individual app to change it to show a new icon, etc?
I'd also like more dock designs.
I'm really looking to customize my UI - and the more options the better. I tried ADW Launcher and found it to be confusing. I've thought about trying GoLauncher too.
Anyway, I'd really appreciate it if you guys could help me out!
