    Hi everyone,

    We're currently in the process of building an app and would love some feedback on our icon design. Any comment would be helpful thanks, it's a 3d wallpaper app:

    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.

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