    The only thing keeping me form using this full time is setting up icons for all my buttons. Can you set it up so we can put either png or even ico files in a folder on SD card or somewhere that the app can us for button icons. This would allow us to use

    Ok, I’ve got the underlying code somewhat working. I still need to work on the picker portion. Be aware that you need the icons to be rather large to look good. The built in icons are 150px x 150px.

    I’ve got another update with some fixes and improvements. I now create the Icons folder and .nomedia file for you. Also some more checks to make sure only image files are listed. Image files will be resized to show in a nice grid.
