The thing I like about iPhone's icons is that they are of the same size & shape.
Hence, they are pretty neat to look at and well organized on the device.

BUT I wouldn't like my Xperia to get any resemblance of an iPhone whatsoever.
Otherwise I loose it's uniqueness. And since I feel X1 is better than iPhone, why should I copy something inferior. (Hey, this is just me ok?) :p

So here's a shot at organizing Windows Mobile icons - color coded.
Each time you open a folder, you see a different color theme.





use hComber to change your current icons
or
try this new icon changer

(tested working on X1...highly recommended!)


this set is now used in Jack's ROM series for Xperia. try it!

color-coded icons



you can now customize your own icons.
with these templates, creating your icon is as easy as 1-2-3.


1.
choose a color of your liking & open the file in photoshop
2.
insert a clipart or logo inside the button
3.
resize the artwork to approx. 90x90 pixel @ 192dpi (for wvga) and save as png

(or 45x45px @ 96dpi for qvga)


viola!
you now have your own icon

(optional: add bevel & shadow to your cliparts for richer effect)

enjoy!

ADDITIONAL TEMPLATE
1. folder - black

Hi

Thank you for a beautiful set of icons, so I decided to invest a little time and resized them to 48 X 48, which is better for our QVGA devices.

Cheers

Edit: small typo in the name, it's not an exe file, just unzip :)

Great looking icons... Only complaint is: aren't the VGA/WVGA icons supposed to be 90x90 (for the WM6.5 start menu at least) and 45x45 for QVGA/WQVGA?

Based on this.

thnx mod,
yup, you're right. but windows can automatically resize the file.
and from bigger to smaller, results in better resolution.
but if there's anything i'm violating, please advise.
thnx again

@ bassam; hey man. nice to hear from you. thnx always

NET icons

suggestions and requests are welcome.
just don't forget to mention which colored button you want to use (from the templates on post #2)
Simply state of the "Art" and good addition to my upcoming rom (yeah, I know it's delayed but coming soon :) )

Can you link posts with additional/updated icon to the first post such that reader are easier to follow?
