    I see a lot of sceenshots of peoples phones that have icons without the square backgrounds, the background of the icon is transparent. I've searched this forum and cannot find any. Anyone have a link?

    Also is there a way to enlarge the icon, on my home screen I would like to have my 4 main icons large than the rest, is this possible?

    I think the app "Bigger Icons" or something like that does this. I use the opposite version called "More Icons" which lets you place tiny ones in to fit more.. nice for little things.

    Hmm, not the best reviews on that app especially for costing $$, that the only option? I bet they would look good with transparent icons though.

    I am looking for the same thing... i posted a thread asking how to get the transparent backgrounds as well. It would be key to find something.

    SweeterHome theme gives you control over all your icons.... really tedious to use though

    Not in the app store ... search for the SweeterHome website

    Anyway to just get those icons for BetterCut or MM? You're right, it seems like a pain in the rear to use SweeterHome.

    Nahh.. you create those icons one at a time as you go through the sweeterhome theme... it allows you to resize and drop the text.. I'm addicted to it now... I theme every night before bed.. check my photo album for more stuff you can do...

    It says "2.0 and later" on the beta2..
    But I dunno... I did a full backup before trying it just because it's a beta version.. had a few force closes but found out it was kinda my fault for trying to resize widgets... or editing for to long without saving... cool stuff though

    Seems to be working ok on 2.1, seems to work fine. You're right, it is very intuitive. Can't figure out how to adjust the icons though
