one more off topic, lekky what theme/icons are you using?
Try it in HTC Sync mode.
someone said it before i think, but its GPS
they are by curvefish, just search curvefish in the market and you'll see a list of their widgets
Hmm, does everyone else not have the taskbar on the lockscreen? I didn't set it manually but it may a side effect of something, let me know
It's the bookmarks widget for Dolphin HD browser app.
My guide kind of gives a start
The icons on screen main + 2 are these http://lab.iirojappinen.com/idroid/icons.zip
The others can be found in the market called:
-icon pack - ibox
-icon pack - ibox2
-icon pack - ibox3
They are applied using the File Organizer app.
Instead of sense i'm also using helixlauncher (on the market), lets you add those 4 tray icons along the bottom. But its not terribly stable, crashes quite a bit :/
Sorry for slight offtopicness here Lekky, but I too have considered these icons and icon packs. I didnt realise you need an app called File Organizer in order to apply them [I didnt really know how they were applied!].
However, do you need File Organizer ALWAYS running in the background in order for the icons to be maintained? i.e. if it was uninstalled after applying the icons, will the icons disappear too?
Also does anything at all need to run as an extra resource in the background in order to have these icons displaying other than default? i.e. I'd like changed icons but not by compromising memory utilisation.
p.s. I think its inevitable that a thread of this nature [e.g. post your PC/Mac desktop, HTC Homescreens] will bring questions about who's using what ....so its not compleeeetely offtopic.
p.p.s Really silly question here, I couldn't find a specific app called 'File Organizer' - did you mean just any file organiser? i.e. ASTRO? *EDIT* found it: http://www.appbrain.com/app/com.google.code.appsorganizer
Ooh it's found it! Thank you
Nope and nope, you can safely kill it.
<back on topic>
Now where are everyone else's screenshots?
Off topic again but I agree, I know I for one am only utilising Android by the smallest percentage of it's ability.
It's almost like some dark force withholding all it's secrets. Lekky's set up, while not to my tastes, really shows off what Android and the Desire is truly capable of.
There are guides here to some things but a website giving detailed info on how to produce results like that above would be really useful to lots of Android Noobs, myself included.
My homepages aren't anything special so just a quick post of them. Also, one of them has nothing on at the moment as I've been fiddling with them a bit so I haven't included it.
Love your wallpaper (can i have it pls ), but I've never been a big fan of the sense widgets.
Can i make some suggestions, i don't know if you prefer an agenda view of your appointments but 'android agenda widget' kinda has a sense theme going on:
and smooth calendar for the 1 line calendar widget as it allows multiple lines
Just in case you wanted to try them
Sorry to ask Lekky another question
But the theme on your fone, where did you get it from...its wicked and would love to have it ??
Thanks for the suggestions. I'll definitely have a look, they do sound better than the standard sense widgets.
The wallpaper is by a Japanese artist, Aya Kato: cheval noir
Ridiculously amazing artist!
Okay, i Hve tried that and get similar on off toggle switches - but not the same and not as good.
They don't say on/off and they don't show red when turned off?
Any idea why they are different? ( And not as good looking)
Lekky, it prob would have saved a lot of thread space if you'd just given a breakdown of every app/widget on there in the first place.
New thread rule there?
Lekky, love the wallpaper in this shot, where can I D/L the image?
@Lekky I have been trying to change icons the way you have them. Using the App manager program that was posted further up the thread I can set a custom icon that links to a category so it opens a window with some apps I can launch rather than just launching the app I want straight away.
Is that the way it works on yours?
I can achieve what I want by changing the Shortcut settings within Helix.
Perhaps Lekky should just post up a link to his appbrain page? LOL
can anyone tell me what the widget is 2nd from bottom that says, Update, Home Mentions, DM, Search?
Can anyone tell me what this theme is
Can I use ASTRO for the icons? or should it be Apps Organizer?
Its called helixlauncher and is available on the market.
The ones I used are by curvefish, search that name in the market.
Those 2 wern't actually my screenshots, just taken from the developer (thus the frenchness )
Actually app organizer only allows you to set folders, its twin app called folderorganizer adds on this by adding shortcuts, changing app icons etc.
Twicca, cool twitter client
Check the theme answer above, the wallpaper i created from an anime pic, if u want that i can post here
Sorry its not called file organzer my mistake.
Ther are 2, appsorganizer and folderorganizer. The first just lets u create folders and is free, the second basically lets you do anything and is paid, but very cheap.
Haha ok, I guess the way I did it was the long way.
I created a category using Apps Organizer with my own icon. Added it to the shortcuts in Helix. Then configured helix and changed the shortcut manually to launch what I wanted rather than the Apps Organizer category. It kept the icon but launched a different app.
Cheers Lekky for info on Theme, if you could post "the wallpaper i created from an anime pic" i would be gratefull .....its cool
How do i download it from here once you've posted it and get it on my phone ??
