Can't change icons. Can't change icons. Also want apps at the bottom of the screen, not the top.

Very good But I can't change icons from another theme set. There's a blank page appears. Please fix it!

Cool app I am liking this app so far, I just wish they could make the activation point visible if wanted in a way that was not disruptive. Also I noticed that the icon pack are not working when I tried to switch the icon, it would be great if it would use the icon pack I am using with the Nova launcher by default.

Clever implementation. Recommended enhancements: Merge Switchr features into Sidebar. Place a feedback link on the settings panel. Add drag and drop rearrange capability on sidebar. Money well spent.
