Social+ Theme | Step by Step Guide

The Social+ Theme 4 Apex Launcher is one of our few themes that needs to be modified a little bit after instalation. But with this step by step guide it should be no problem.

The finished home screen should look like the screen on the right.


How to Change the Homescreen Icons


Go to the homescreen and click on an icon until the bubble appears. Click on "Edit". Now press the "Edit shortcut - window" on the button with the icon.

In "Icon type - window" you have many options. We take the "Select from icon pack". Now you can see all installed icon packs. In our example it is "Buddy Theme 4 Apex Launcher". In the new window you see now all icons that were installed with the theme. Just pick one.

Back in the "Edit shortcut - window" just press "OK". Done That's it. Now you can change all the other icons on your homescreen. Icons for the main apps are included. If not, just take one of the "Allround Icons" that we have added. Try them out.
