    I have been using zlauncher . I really love it. here are the things is like
    change icons
    customize background
    create shortcuts
    create tabs hide tabs
    file manager
    and a host of other things
    I have been working with jeff over there at gotreosoftware and we both come to feel that zlauncher may be one of the applications that is causing my treo to crash.
    As you can see from my signature what applications i have on my treo.
    IM looking for a launcher that can do many of the same things that zlauncher can do . mainly the ability to change backgrounds to add pictures to it. I also want the ability to change my icons and create shortcuts from my sd carddont know much about propel .... please jump in
    zlauncher makes my treo look good. i dont like the phoney cartoon looking backgrounds or icons .. i like the professional look... i dont want that look you get when you have a blackberry

    TreoLauncher will just do that. Just check out this (rather long) thread and you will know everything you need to know about this awesome launcher: http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...d.php?t=131227

    Zlauncher was causing most of my crashes and as soon as I removed it they went away. It works for most but not me. Still love Zlaunncher but cant deal with all the crashes. Moved to treoLauncher and now touchLauncer. Both are great but for what you said you need, Treolauncher is it.

    Another one to look at that does much the same as ZLauncher is Initiate/Initiate Pro from www.hobbyistsoftware.com.

    Neither mentions anything about the ability to chage icons. Propel does but it seems to me that you have to use their iconset .
    if anyone is using a launcher and has a screen shot with diffrent icons please post

    Another vote for Initiate/Initiate Pro. I switched from Megalauncher shortly after getting my Treo. Rob offers a great e-mail news letter with all sorst of tips & tricks. You have nothing to loose by using the trial and see what it does for you.

    Treo launcher lets you change icons you just have to get either a gif or bmp file and store it in a folder named icons in the DCIM folder on the card. It also lets you see the apps on the car by sorting them in subfolders within the launcher folder named to the categories already made in the default palm launcher. (ie main/games/etc)

    Heres some scrrenshots of Treolauncher

    Well theres not tabs just abc and 123 modes. (one has the calender and the other doesnt) You can choose different wallpapers and text colors for each but the icons stay the same.

    s far as where you get them...Anywhere. Theres a whole bunch listed in the Treolauncher thread. As long as the icon pic is 48x48 pixels and is a gif or bmp file you are good to go. Im pretty sure if the icon sets for zlauncher are just pics stored somewhere youd be able to use those too.

    I have tried all of them. The ONLY concern I came away with when using Initiate Pro: it is a busy screen and due to indexing, takes a moment to do its thing. Stability is not an issue.
