    I've heard that you can get thtmes for the iPad just like the iPhone and iPod Touch but apparently the icons are 72x72 on iPad and you need to have custom 72x72 icons otherwise it either won't work or it will look ridiculosly small. Is this true? And are there any iPad specific themes that have been released? Does anyone have a screenshot of a theme on the iPad with the regular 'small' iPhone/ Touch icons? Thanks for the help

    if you use bigger icons dont they just look bigger, like they should. try it.

    like themes like wii touch, their bigger than normal icons and you just make room with iblanks.

    Lol that would be weird lol just have 1 icon per page xD But yeah because I was kinda stupid and didn't even think that the iPad has bigger icons, so I thought I could just put my regular Dulce onto the iPad and it would look beautiful but I saw on a thread somewhere else about people trying to port themes for the iPad then I was like wtf is that they said you need 72x72 icons so if that is true then don't all the creators need to remake their themes to fit 72x72?

    Yeah, I'll just have to ask the creator of my favourite theme to see if he is redoing one for iPad

    Actually, if the icon is the size for iPhone/iPod Touch, it automatically gets scaled up. That's why some people opted to putting in higher resolution icons for the iPad. Now, an icon that is bigger than the intended size... Hmm, I'll try that for you when I get the chance.
