ApplicationDescriptor.getIcon() returns ugly monochrome icons for the built-in apps. Any other way to get an application's icon as it is display on the device's homescreen/task switcher?


If not, can this be a feature request?  *holds breath* Smiley Happy

Re: ApplicationDescriptor.getIcon()

You could get a copy of the icons from Theme Builder found in the Plazmic CDK.  It contains the icons for all BlackBerry applications.  You can download it from http://www.plazmic.com.
