Default Best app for changing icons?

Can anyone suggest a good app that will allow a user to change the icon for an app?

I was using ADW EX and could change the icons anytime thanks for the fantastic integrated editing features of the launcher. But I'm giving Sense a thorough test drive for the first time and really like it, so I'd like to use all the custom icons I bought from Tha Phlash.

Follow-up: Is there a way to add a fifth column and/or fifth row?

I've been using GO Launcher EX. I removed Sense, installed Ziggy's kernel, and installed ThaIconUltimate to change all my icons. It was a little sluggish at first, but it's running silky smooth ever since I flashed Ziggy's kernel.

In the screenshot attached, you'll see I have 5 icons across the bottom row, then 5 columns x 4 rows of icons on each screen. GO Launcher lets you customize how many rows/columns you'd like to add.
