Thread: How Can I Create a Blank (Transparent) Icon

  1. #1
    Default How Can I Create a Blank (Transparent) Icon
    I am trying to create a blank icon with no name for my weather app. I then want to lay it on top of a weather widget I have on my Springboard so that when I press it, it will launch the weather app.

    I tried the following.

    I used Rename to rename the Weather app nothing "". I did this so remove the icon name.
    I then went to the applications folder and inserted a blank icon file "icon.png" in the Weather applications folder taht replaced the default weather icon.

    I did get an icon with no name, but the icon on my Springboard looks like it put the default icon overlay on my blank icon - so it is visible.

    Does anyone have any ideas on how I may do this?

    Yes. This is what I can't get past. I found a way (what I described above) to lose the label, but I could not get the transparent icon.

    Your instructions helped me get the icon that I am looking for, but I do not know how to get rid of the label.

    Thanks for your help. It is very much appreciated.

    well if you renamed the app "" then you should name that picture ".png" and put it in the Icons folder...

    I did not realize I could name the file ".png" It worked perfectly!

    Thank you very much.
