Default [MOD] Stock Launcher | Square Folders | V1

I wasn't really too happy with the Android folders. Didn't really think they fit in with the stock ICS Launcher so I made them square

This has only been tested on my device running ARHD 1.3.0 so let me know how it goes.

Make sure you take a NANDROID backup before doing anything!

Because everything else is square and Tron like. Then they put circular folders which look a bit rubbish imo

Any way to make a pop-up eque menu that opens a list on the screen... instead of a huge folder consuming the whole screen

It's not about why, it's about why NOT!

If you create a translucent background version with a (~0.8 opacity) border I will use it for sure!
Keep up the good work!

I'll have a look into it but I can't guarantee anything

Yep, easy enough to do. I will get some more versions made. Might not be able to do it tonight but i'll see what I can do
