Cute-ify Your iPhone!

I recently "cute-ified" my iPhone, with the free app CocoPPa! This app alows you to customize your icons, and it also offers thousands of free wallpapers! It was alot of fun and took me a little over an hour to get it the way I wanted, so I thought I would explain how to do it, and offer some tips for you!



Basically, this app creates shortcuts or a bookmark, from a previous existing app on your phone. The shortcut allows you to have any icon that you want. Since this is only creating a bookmark, you must keep the original app. I just placed all of my icons in one folder. 

Unfortunately, not all apps have a shortcut, and won't be able to have the cute look. Which also means that you will not get push-notifications on any of the shortcuts. Some of the icons on my screen that you see above are just for show, and won't actually work when you click them.

When using the app and to start cute-ifying your phonr, find the icon for app that you wish to create a shortcut for. Then go look for the app. If the app is not listed in the "App Search" then set up a URL for it. Here are some of the native URLs that will set up the shortcuts for you:

Safari =  http://www.google.com
Maps = maps:
SMS = sms:
Mail = mailto:
Music = music:
iTunes =  http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewAlbum?i=156093464&id=156093462&s=143441
App Store = http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=294409923&mt=8

If you get tired of this cute look, just hold down the icon and delete it as you would with any other app on your phone, and then pull the original app out of the folder!

Feel free to ask any questions, and I will do my best to answer them!

Enjoy your cute-ified iPhone!
