Is it possible to do this kind of thing to an Android1.5 phone? LauncherPro is for 2.0+ and ADW for 1.6+.

Icons are called Simptext: (Apparently you have to visit the blog to download, there are some docks there as well).

Ok, If you are a HTC Desire (Resolution = 480 x 800) user:

Resolution = 72 ppi

1x1 = 110 x 122

2x1 = 230 x 122
3x1 = 350 x 122
4x1 = 470 x 122

1x2 = 110 x 254
1x3 = 110 x 386
1x4 = 110 x 518

2x2 = 230 x 254
3x3 = 350 x 386
4x4 = 470 x 518

Can anyone give this method & sizes of widgets for Xperia X10 to me?

Thanks for response, but i cant set an image for folder. I can set it for app or, for example, bookmark or contact, but cant find folder in action selection.

OH! I didn't read it correctly. I thought you meant folder as in where your photos are for icons.
But you mean literally have a icon for the application folder. Yea, like the guy above me said, there are none. Hopefully the feature will be added.
The app itself was just updated yesterday or today I can't remember. So hopefully in the next one.
I assume it doesn't do this because a folder is not a application itself.

I did this on my vibrant. I actually created a psd template that with hosting I could share. It uses a ton of guides to help make the right sized selection. It works really well if you want to create a lot of buttons from one larger image. Like the Miles Davis one above.

Anyway as far as I can tell, the rows are 128 pixels tall and the columns are 110 pixels wide.

110x128 would be perfect for a 1x1 tile.

Now, for the larger tiles to have to account for the gaps of space between the rows and columns. 10 pixels between rows, 4 between columns.

So... 1x2 is 110x128*2+4, or 110x260
1x3 is 110x128*3+8, or 110x392
I'll leave the rest to you.

2x1 is 110*2+10x128, or 230x128
3x1 is 110*3+20x128, or 350x128
etc.

To make things more complicated, if you don't like the wider 10 pixel horizontal gaps look funny with 4 pixel vertical gaps you can add 3 pixels of transparent space, on any side that faces one of those smaller vertical gaps.

Ok, thanks for reply.
Found the solution by installing FolderOrganizer. Now there is Shortcuts for it in action selection.
Have another question. Is there a way to rearrange icons correctly after hiding/showing status bar.

Somebody earlier posted a link to another forum in another language.. the link they posted was supposed to show or say how they got the indicators to show on the icons. Not the dock icons but the ones on the homescreen. I want to know how it was done if anybody knows.

That way I can hide my notification bar without missing text, emails, etc. I know it has to do something with coding.

Here is a signed .apk for doing it, just used the stock image files from the first post. Once installed, use the widget "SMS Unread count". Use the default icons, do not change to custom, and select phone for missed calls count, messages for SMS/MMS and email for gmail... See what I mean: h ttp://i1190.photobucket.com/albums/z457/br4nd3dm4n/CAP201009221721.jpg

I'm too new to post outside links, so copy and paste (remove the space in http) :

I already wrote it but here it's again:

Tip for finding the right size for your phone: Take a widget in the size wanted, unlock it from the screen and let it fall back into the same space. LauncherPro now skips into Resize Mode - take a screenshot of this! The yellow translucent space is the size you want. Maybe you have to try around a bit by adding or removing a pixel (for me only vertically, horizontically everything was perfect) or two but all in all it's the best start. Taking screenshots of the various tests also helps to figure out the differences. I had to take three complete shots untill I had the final sizes.
For this to help, do you resize the widget first, then take the screenshot? Cause that doesn't work either ....=/

    Heres the resources and mini guide to this as promised



    premonition_by_newone757-d2yhhx0.png



    Resources:::

    Icons and PSD's-http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4111270/Icons_AP7.zip

    the font used is Helvitca. Not a free font and no i can not provide it. A little google might land you it illegally

    N4HuX


    clock is just digital clock widget with the date in black so you cant see





    Instructions:::

    Using Launcher Pro Plus or ADW Launcher
    and
    Desktop Visualizer

    For Horizontal Widgets, Select the 4x1 Desktop Visualizer widget, load your 3x1 png and shortcut, and then resize it to 3x1 when placed on the homescreen


    For vertical Widgets its straightforward. Widget size is 1x2.


    If you want the dock set it in launcher pro and then use a transparent icon for the launcher in the middle. Transparent Icon not included​








    More Guidance. Thanks for helpin out

    You have to change your home screen to use 5 rows of icons. ;)



    1. You have to install Launcher Pro (and activate Plus features to be able to resize the widgets properly)
    2. Install Desktop Visualizer
    3. In LauncherPro settings, set appearance of the dock to custom, and use the dock from the new layout.
    4. Under advanced set rows to 5.
    5. Change app launcher icon to http://www.elektrobike-hotels.com/markers/transparent.png
    6. Remove icons from dock.
    7. Create Desktop Visualizer widgets of the appropriate size and configure them to look like the layout.
    8. Enjoy!




    andyriot has been kind enough to port this over to the lower resolution devices, Its looking sharp too. Way sharper than mine. Nice

    Due to a few request.. I added a few more icons to my pack. Enjoy.


    allicons.png



    There are a few alternatives to play with. :)

    NOTE: I made these icons based off my Droid X resolution (480x854), so they may be bigger on other phones. You can use photoshop to reduce the size to fit your phone better.

    I use:
    3x1 (Horizontal) Icons = 390x150 pixels
    1x2 (Vertical) Icons = 120x330 pixels


    How to set it up:

    Apps Needed:
    Launcher Pro Plus (LP)
    Desktop Visualizer (DV)


    1. Open your LP Preferences > Advanced Settings > 5 Icon rows in homescreen (Check it), restart LP.
    2. For Horizontal icons (3x1) Open a 4x1 DV widget, select your icon, select the app you want it to open and remove the name from the edit box. After you create it, resize the 4x1 DV widget to 3x1 with LP (long press icon).
    3. For Vertical icons (1x2) Open a 1x3 DV widget, select your icon, select the app you want it to open and remove the name from the edit box. After you create it, resize the 3x1 widget to 2x1 with LP (long press icon).


    Updated:
    10/21/10 - Added Weather, Contacts, Task Killer, Alarm Clock.

    10/19/10 - Added TiKL, Soundhound, MP3 Download, Voicemail.

    Im going to try to answer all these questions soon yall.

    But there shouldnt be any jpegs in this at all, if so, here they are zipped up.

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4111270/Icons_AP7.zip

    Im pretty sure thats desktop visualizer messing with the quality. But right now the only option is to embed the images into a wallpaper, which i dont want to do because i have widgets on my other screens

    thanks yall

    why the goddamn hell did you suggest this piece of **** app when it doesnt have wp7 skin for the phone which i ORIGINALLY asked for?

    You're a freakin' moron. You asked, and I quote:

    "will this android phone 7 also make the phone look like WP7 phone?"

    Windows Phone 7 on the left - Launcher7 on the right:



    Looks pretty similar to me.

    I would ask you to clarify what "wp7 skin" means- which you did NOT ORIGINALLY ask for... but I don't care about your stupid question anymore.

    You're obviously lacking the mental capacity to ask the right question- and you get angry when others don't understand you. A simple "thanks for the reply, but this wasn't what I meant" would have sufficed. Instead, you want to be an asshole.

    Good luck "customizing" your phone, douche.
