    • SwitchPro
    • Desktop Visualizer (to change stock icons and remove icon labels)
    • LauncherPro Icons (for the icons)

    • How did you get switch pro to load. Does not show up in market for me. Did you side load?

    The next version of LauncherPro Icons will be easier to use. The killer feature is that you don't have to download to the gallery first anymore. You have the option of opening LPi instead of the gallery when you go to choose your icon from DV, LP or whatever. Then when you choose an icon, it downloads and applies in one step.

    In the version after that, I'm considering offering the ability to make shortcuts right from LPi, eliminating the need for Desktop Visualizer. Would that be a useful addition?

    When are you seeing the lag, exactly? I haven't noticed a problem.

    r any of u guys that have tons of widgets and stuff running noticing any performance issues? this was by no means scientific, but when i first got my xoom, i filled it up with like 15 widgets, and noticed SERIOUS issues (things like web pages taking EXTREEMLY long to load, lots of force closes on stable apps, and even a couple of freezes) and so i got rid of all but 2 widgets, and ALL those problems stopped imediatly. Its entirely possible that 1 or 2 of the widgets were the only ones responsible, but they were almost all system widgets w the exception of a few (seemingly stable) ones like cnn, and usa today. Any way, im sure ill start to add more slowly and test things out, but i was just wondering if any of u guys have noticed any issues w performance from running lots of stuff on ur homescreens.

    looks like deviantart was giving me a neutered version of the site on my Xoom, probably the mobile version. On my computer I can now actually browse the gallery correctly and find it.

    Thanks!

    I cannot seem to expand the box completely and therefore I end up with just the center of the wallpaper, but stretched over the entire screen. The box seems like it is trying to maintain aspect ratio and when it reaches the maximum height, it doesn't let me expand horizontally any more. I am using 1200x800, so it doesn't make any sense to me. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. New to Android, but dragging things with my fingers should still work. =)

    Thanks for any insight into what I am missing.

    Here is my set up now with BigDX's theme added. Once the clock is able to be modified (either white or red), I will be set.

    How did you get the lock screen wallpaper different than your main wallpaper? I cannot figure this out for the life of me! lol

    It is an option of WidgetLocker. On the lockscreen, tap the Menu button. Then select "Look & Feel", and then place the checkmark in "Alternative Wallpaper". After that, just click on "Select Wallpaper" to set whatever paper you want.

    I love the clean look and the different wallpaper for the lock screen. How do you get the icons to the far right edge? Are you using a launcher?

    Wondering if anyone can help me out.

    I have everything but the Internet, Games, etc folders setup. I've used circle launcher for a long time on my phone, so prefer to use that. I have no problem setting up a typical CL widget, but have no idea how to make one of these custom text based icons be the actual desktop icon. I've even tried using Minimalistic Text to create an icon that would then launch CL, but that did nothing but bring up a screen informing me how to use CL (directions on how to add a widget to the home screen). Also, I don't know how to reposition the location of where the Circle pops up (ideally centered on the screen, rather than centered over the icon.

    To reiterate:

    1: How do I assign a custom icon the Circle Launcher?

    2: How do I designate where the cicprcle will open up to on the screen?

    TIA

    Sweet! I am all over this! :)
     
  25. You have to have Circle Launcher pro to use custom icons. Get that, and you can set any icon you want (including a "picture" of words).
