    Free Icons that don't require home launcher download?

    I'm currently using Launcher Pro and like it the best, but there aren't really good choices for app icons without downloading whole themes or using another homescreen launcher app.

    Is there a way to just download more free icons to be able to have more variety / choice that you can use with ANY home screen app?

    Are you talking about app icons or dock bar icons. Just do a search on either here or xda for icon packs and then use better cut to interchange them. As for dock bar icons, try the LP forums. There are gobs of em over there.

    Well, I guess icons for BOTH the apps and dock bar. Thanks for the tips and thanks to the next poster for the help as well. I'm off to go "icon-shopping."

    ADW launcher doesn't require a separate app, it has a builtin feature of adding custom shortcuts, or changing the icon on the fly.

    Ok, so the LP icon grid is ok, but not exactly what I wanted. I don't like the black/white/grey drawing-style of the images. I like some of the colorful designs and images used in some of the zillions of themes available, but you have to download the theme AND/or also use a particular home-launcher to be able to use the particular icons and themes. I like LP, but I don't like their icons.

    I guess I am looking for a way to find a free source of varied icons from many different sources that maybe I have to upload or download to my gallery(?) and use the different images for various different desktop icons. If that makes sense?

    Thanks again for the awesome help.

    Again I would suggest using bettercut. You could also use desktop visualizer and createyour own. Search up the pictures of peoples droid desktops thread. There skads of icons in there and if you ask a lot of times thereeithr alreadyis a dl link to them or you can ask for one.

    Yes, I tried ADW launcher, but didn't really like it. I did see all their icons (many of which I really liked), but I prefer LP better for my launcher/homescreen preferences. I just can't figure out how to find cool icons like those used on ADW (and others) that don't require either the launcher download and/or a separate pack download that "requires a particular launcher, etc. etc. etc."

    Can't I just find a place to download icon images and set them for my various apps? I was thrilled to finally find a wallpaper/background app called simply "colors" so I could select SOLID background wallpaper colors for my desktop. I'm trying to find the same easy option for icons, but it doesn't seem to exist.

    I just created a folder in my pictures folder and named it icons. I then just google searched icons. I have themed icons, even generic icons. They are usually in zip files I drag and drop them to the correct folder while I'm hooked up to my computer.

    I use desktop visualizer to the substitute in whatever icons I want
