This is a little app I developed mainly because I got tired of changing all my shortcut icons by hand every time I wanted to try something new.

It works by a folder of icons on your sdcard and matching them to installed applications by name. For example, Browser.png gets mapped to the Browser application.

This is more of a test version i'm looking fro people to find bugs and try other devices.

If you are having problems:
Please send me your log by using the button from the main menu.

Known Issues:
- Very long list of notifications.

Changes:
- 0.2:
You can now edit the title of each app.

I have included a test set of icons, Token Icons, original can be found here: http://brsev.deviantart.com/art/Token-128429570

Now this is cool. Gonna try it out. Only thing is certain apps I like to change the name of when I create shortcuts with BetterCut. Like changing XScope to Browser. I suppose I could do those one by one with BetterCut though.

Adding name changing would be pretty easy.

Works really great. It's convenient. Only work involved is naming the icons which can easily be done from your computer before you put them on the sd card.

I ran into a slight problem. While selecting the icon folder.
Drilled down to folder.
Hit select...nothing
Hit select...nothing
Hit select...nothing
Hmm
Hit back button...nothing
Hmm

Screen turns black, osmonitor looks maxed out.
After around 5 minutes, maybe more, go into osmonitor and kill auto shortcut.
