    Looks good to me.
    I never give up. Snideness and rudeness of any sort WILL be returned in kind.

    Thanks, not sure if it stands out enough to get noticed, I guess we can try a few variations....

    What do you think on why an a certain app icon jumps out at you and what draws your attention, be fascinated to hear your opinions...

    Thanks again

    The less busy, the better in most cases. I gravitate towards app icons that are clean and easy to identify on sight. Most of the ones I have trouble locating on my phone or iPad are the busier ones that try to do too much in a half-inch square! Too much text, not hi-res, or too much detail gets lost to my searching eyes.

    You can't see much when it is small

    It is very misleading to show a large icon, when it reality if it is for an iPhone or iPAD it becomes very small. like in here:





    you need to put the 3D title on as much clearer background as possible.

    Hi peled and that's a fair point, it certainly wasn't my intention.

    How about these?




    These are at 72px x 72px which is the correct ipad size.

    Many thanks for your comments

    Much better! The second one is clearest and easiest to identify.

    is my favorite. It is the most easily readable in the milliseconds that people browsing the app store usually think about it.
