♥ How To Get A Kawaii Phone ♥

I've jail broken and hacked my phone enough times to tell you all its a pain in the butt, and it will screw up your phone. I've done it so much that the thought of it makes me go crazy (。・ˇ_ˇ・。​)

Thankfully, I discovered this nifty little app called CocoPPa.




CocoPPa is an app which simply ads a shortcut to your apps on your home screen. It does NOT replace your apps. If you delete the app, the shortcut will not work. 

This is my current home screen:



It doesn't make it as short as it! I just cropped it (♡˙︶˙♡)Page two has all of my apps on it, in folders, so you can't see it on the home screen! Instead you just see the cute little shortcuts.

So, how to use this app! It is really simple, but it can get very difficult.


Each app you download, or have on your phone, has a scheme code. I can't explain what a scheme code is because I really have no idea! I just know its used for short cuts.


Lets get started!


Lets say you want to replace Instagram or any other app you have downloaded, CocoPPA allows you to search for apps to replace! I will show how to do this below:




If your app does not come up, don't freak out! You can go to this website and search for it! If your app does not come up on that website, there is not a scheme for it yet! Not all apps can get super duper kawaii. When you go to the website, and your app DOES come up, copy the native application url. I will show you how to use this below.




These next steps are the same if your app did or did not come up.




Okay, now for apps that have come with your phone!

You want to follow all of the same steps (of course scroll to the bottom of the app to search for different icons) for apps that have come with your phone.

Apps on your phone will not show in the app search, so you must go to http://handleopenurl.com/ and search for the scheme code.

PLEASE NOTE A LOT OF IPHONE APPS DO NOT HAVE WORKING SCHEMES. My phone button on my home screen does NOT work, I just added it to look cute. Also, these are simply shortcuts


♥THIS DOES NOT REPLACE THE APPS.♥
♥DO NOT DELETE YOUR APPS.♥
♥THESE ARE SIMPLY SHORTCUTS.♥
♥YOU CAN DELETE THEM ANYTIME.♥



If you have any further questions

  1. I love the concept but I've only got the cat ear wallpaper as I think the icons not actually replacing the apps is annoying :(

    1. Hi babe, they will not replace your icons. You have to move your icons to the second page of your phone. In order to replace the icons completely you will have to hack your phone which is not recommended xo

  2. Hi, I'm pretty confused on how add the apps that come on your phone already, I don't understand how you use the website and what you put in the search bar when you're searching for an index? x

    1. Hi love. Some apps are not able to have short cuts. When going to http://handleopenurl.com/ you must search for the app you want. Then, if it is available, it will give you the native code. You copy the native code and that is what you paste in the url section.
