    [How To] Desktop Visualizer

    Desktop Visualizer works flawlessly on your Honeycomb Tab for replacing the stock icons on your home screens

    or in conjunction with Folder Organizer




    First you place the widgets from your app drawer onto your homescreen






    Organize them how you like





    Now when you select an icon you will be brought to the settings page for the widget that you selected


    You will be able to choose a custom icon, the action it makes ie: open application or folder the highlight color and a few other options






    Here are the final results





    Here are a few icon packs I've found along the way

    Manups Simple Words I


    Manups Simple Words II


    Simple Set (unknown Creator)

    The last file has the PS Template so you can make your own icons in Photoshop, and a transparent icon which I used numerous times on my homescreen to let the actual wallpaper become part of the user experience





    This application is very user friendly and best of all, it's free

    Pretty sweet! I guess I need to fire up Photoshop and start making icons. I had given up on themeing being so easy on the iPhone. This puts me back into the game.
