    Hello,

    I'm wondering how I can change the icons of apps I have added to WidgetLocker. I use go launcher and I can change icons by long holding on an app and selecting replace, how can I do this in WidgetLocker?

    Thanks

    Widget Locker doesn't have this ability natively. It also doesn't support many widgets/features that your launcher has.

    You'll need another app that allows changing icons. I know Folder Organizer can do this, and there are certainly other as well.

    Thanks, I had a feeling that would be the case. Does anyone know of a free app which can can do this for me?

    The one I mentioned, Folder Organizer, has a free version which can do this for you.

    Awesome, at first I didn't think I could use Folder Organizer because when I tried to change the icon it said that direct icon changing is only available in the paid version. After your comment I took another look and saw I can do it from the main menu.

    But I have a problem in that using Folder Organizer I no longer have a missed/unread count on my phone, sms, and gmail apps, which does make sense when using another app.

    Maybe someone can help me by offering a different approach to achieve my goal in WidgetLocker:
    I want to be able to see the number of missed calls from the native phone app, sms messages from GO sms, and email from gmail app. I Also want to link to the respective app or preferably, if possible, to the specific sms or email that I've missed, a link to the app would be enough though.

    I know this is possible to do but I've been having trouble setting something up for the past couple days.

    Thanks!
