    Those would be Metro icons from here. Each icon is a shortcut to folders of frequently used apps I created using Folder Organizer

    You open up Folder Organizer and create a new label, to which you can assign apps, bookmarks or contacts. Then you can add an icon to the label from an icon pack, or from an image file on the phone like I did. Finally, long press on a home screen and add a shortcut to a 'Folder Organizer Folder link' which then creates the folder.

    Snow? Bloody snow!? Don't talk to me about snow! 3 hours to get to work yesterday, 4 hours home, only 60 miles each way! Damn right I'm leaving early today! :)

    ...on the positive side, the long journeys gave me time to test my new HTC car dock and charger, and a chance to play with Google maps and navigation.

    I got my icons from:
    icons.mysitemyway.com

    Has loads of royalty free, great looking icons.
    May re-post my screens soon as i've adjusted a few bits and pieces.

    Worked really well actually. Just had my current position showing on vanilla Maps for the first couple of hours, then switched to Navigation. Used about 3.4mb data over 4 hours with screen set to 'always-on', and using the charger meant that I started with 65% battery and arrived home fully charged! ;)

    Anyone have a link to that wallpaper? Also, what is the widget that is showing the days of the week? dClock doesn't have an option to display the time as text. It looks like this is Clockr to display time and date, but the days of the week is something different?

    Here's my attempt...

    I finally found out how to do screen captures!!!

    Nothing special as I'm not very technical, but I like what I have so far, and I'm learning all the time. Only had the phone since August and love it!

    I need some inspiration. Well, icons mainly.

    I've gone to an old wallpaper and picked up some random icons which are stupidly small. May have to make some. And maybe make a new clock.

    This is all I have really:
