    I have Better Cut installed and have really enjoyed customizing the icons for things... but it doesn't seem to allow me to change the icons for folders. Is there a way to do this? (Note, I'm looking for a way a) without rooting the phone and b) without installing a different home app.)

    +1 for Apps Organizer, although I wish they had more icons to use. For example, I have Shopping set up, but am using a Star as there's no $ or shopping cart icon.

    Well just search "icons" and download some icon pack on the market. Then you can set any of them by long hold...

    AppOrganizer is awesome! Thanks guys! It works for everything except my folder of direct dial people and my folder of direct msg people... those still have to be in actual folders.
