    Hi everyone,
    Just dowloaded the app go launcher on my s3, its really cool and all but cant seem to get my downloaded themes to fully apply. Meaning i download a theme i go to my installed themes and apply but the desktop and home screen never change even the icon stay the same. Anyone else having the same problem? Thanks

    Hello and welcome to the forum got_dibx

    You may have to manually change the icons. When on one of your homescreens press menu, preferences, visual settings. You can then scroll left and right through the settings to change everything to match your theme. Depending on your theme some icons may not change.

    To go back to default open up themes, scroll across to installed and default should be at the bottom of the list.

    Either that or force close Go, and the theme, then reboot phone n select the theme.
    GO is dodgy man i used it for years. Buy Nova Prime n u wont regret it.

    Just had a thought, Go Launcher has settings reset doesnt it?
    Sounds like uv used say icons from a pack, same with dock etc n itl keep them.
    Set the theme n set them all to default i think... im done with the programme.
    The latest Nova loads INSTANTLY with a new setting when u press home.... not free but blows Go :)

    I got the part where i have to go to my installed theme and apply the default but it doesn't bother showing up, my previous theme (downloaded and installed) is still there. Should i delete and reinstall? Would my thwmes still be there if i do so? Thanks

    I've never had any problems with the Go Launcher themes, but I usually just use different parts of them, mix and match style, mostly for different dock icons.

    Dnt want to be looking at a disfonctional home screen where there are different sets of icons, isnt that the whole point of having themes. One suit that fits all (except for all the downloaded icons)

    I mean I don't use the whole theme, like I'll find a wallpaper I like, then find a theme with dock icons that match and just use the icons. Find a clock skin and a weather skin that goes with the wallpaper and icons, and viola!
