    I really like having a clean homescreen and I don't really like having to navigate far for my most used apps. On my main screen I have the Beautiful Widgets Flip clock and weather widget, the one that takes up two rows. And as I said, I like things clean, so I'd like to be able to see my background so I don't want to clutter the space with icons. So what would be the best way to make, clear, or near transparent icons for my apps?

    I thought about Better Cut, but still I need the actual pictures of my apps to like photoshop them. Any ideas on how to come up with them? Is there anything I can find on my phone or get the icons off my phone?

    I think that AnyCut will also let you change the icons. The aHome glass icon pack is mostly translucent. You could also use Ultimate Faves or Launcher Dock to condense the number of icons you have.

    I dont believe Anycut will ... Anycut lets you change the name of an icon but not the icon itself ............. I think :D

    I know this is not really what you asked for, but have you considered just making a few folders for apps on the homescreen, or using a program like Apps Organizer so you only have a few category icons on your main desktop?

    Sorry that I didn't really answer your question, but it's always an option. Between Home++ having phone/contacts/apps/favorites buttons neatly arranged and out of the way at the bottom, and a little categorization, I uncluttered my homescreen quite a bit.
