Customize Your iPhone App Icons :: My New Time Suck!

A fellow blogger introduced me to this iPhone app just the other day.

Its called CocoPPa!

And, its FREE!

First, let me show you my cute little icons…see the four on the bottom? Super cute right?

The options are endless to customizing your phone’s display. You can even pick from tons of wallpapers, but this month I’m sticking with my Cuptakes bunny ears wallpaper. 🙂 I am so over looking at all the boring app images from Facebook, Twitter, etc. This is just amazing to me that I can totally customize all the buttons on my iPhone! I even made a shortcut for calls to T.J. So easy and cute!

CocoPPa is an app which enables you to make your favorite image as the “shortcut icon” and place it on the home screen. Create your very own, cute and customized home screens using image submitted by creators and users. Fill your home screen with all of your favorite pictures.

Controls are easy, with three simple steps.

  1. Select an icon you like.
  2. Choose a link destination you want to activate with the icon. 
  3. Select the “add to home screen” via Safari… the icon will be created instantly.

Examples of functions that are available by the shortcut icon.

    1.  You can activate iOS apps.
    2. You can make a phone call to your pre-assigned friends / families.
    3. You can jump to a web bookmark.

You MUST keep the original downloaded application for the shortcut to work since its only a shortcut. I know, that was a bit weird for me to grasp at first, but I just put all the apps I replaced in a tidy folder for now.
