    Default How to know the icon name of an App Store app?
    In iOS7(with winterboard), we always need to put the icon under a folder. According to the theme guide, the folders and the icons under the folders have different names. For folder, some call com.apple.xxxxx

    My question is how to know the folder and icon name of an App Store app in order to change that icon in springboard since some apps are not very popular and are not mentioned in the forum

    And what is the folder and icon name of iWork(pages, numbers, keynote)?

    BTW, what is the use of "Folders" folder under a theme now? It seems in the past it is mainly used to theme the icons but it seems now the "Bundles" folder can deal with it

    Thx guys

    Using iFile,
    - Open the App Store app you're wanting to theme
    - Open the AppsName.app folder
    - Scroll to the Info.plist
    - Open it using Property List Viewer
    - Find Bundle Identifier and open that
    - Select All and COPY. (eg. com.appsname.fortheming) *This will be your folder name*
    - Go to whatever location you've chosen and make a folder by PASTING (com.appsname.fortheming) into the Title/Name spot.
    - Go back to the AppsName.app and find the icons (some are labeled Icon...@2x.png or maybe AppIcon....@2x.png)
    - Copy ALL the relevant icons and paste them into the com.appsname.fortheming folder

    Then get the com.appsname.fortheming folder on your computer so you can start making the custom icons!
