Ever wanted to simply change an icon on your Android phone and found yourself lost in the endless lists of forum posts saying: you have to change heaven and earth to do this...
APK Edit is born!
With this little program you can simply change icons of your android application.
It even lets you change the applications name.
But wait mike..... there's more.....
It even lets you edit the text used in applications.
Sounds to good to be true...
Well... to be honest.... it is.
But I've come a long way from that initial question to the final answer.
My conclusion so far, it works for most of my applications.
It probably will work on most of yours as well.
Try it out now!
(Caution: when overwriting an existing application, using the adb Wireless feature, you will loose your associated data!!!)
For the record... only use on you're own apk files, otherwise it's not that legal I think.
