    Default Animated Icons
    Just made an animated icon for safari. I had several similar icons for safari, I had the original one, then a couple of different Internet explorer one, and a couple of different firefox ones.

    I made a transparent 320 x 480 .png file and put one icon 60x60 down in the lower left corner. It was trial and error to get to be in the same spot as the original one, but once I got it I made 5 transparent images at 320x480 with the different icons. Then I used bosspaper to go through the different icons. Then I used a transparent icon for safari.

    Don't know if it's been done, but I like it. I'll post a video soon.

    Just in the process of searching my damn house for my camera! I was going to buy displayRecorder, but my paypal account is tapped out right now. The only memory issues are with bosspaper and they say there are practically none.

    I havent noticed any difference anyway.

    Ok, here it is.

    As you can see, its not a proper animated icon. Its an animated wallpaper with a transparent icon over it. I made the icons all 55x55 px so that when you slide page two over, it covers the image.

    I am also working on a 320 x 480 icon that will cover a whole page so it will look like multiple wallpapers.

    None of the icons were created by me, I just googled them and downloaded, so I dont take any credit for them, but I don't know who for sure to give credit to.

    As you can see, i am using BossPaper to to do the animations, no credit taken for that either.

    Hope you like!

    Really nice, but not really useful except for personal theme changes.

    Yup. Can't see it being really able to include as part of a theme. Quite specific, but if you have a theme that uses regular type icons on top of a regular wallpaper, it can work pretty good.

    If you could fool the phone into thinking a .gif was a .png, it would be better.

    Thanks for the replies guys.
