What do you think of the series' icons?

Would you rather have this one?

If your talking about the first pic, then I had already changed that. The developer had already asked me to change it. What about the second pic? Would you like that on your homescreen?

Google images at their best ;)

Oh, and Photoshop effects:

- Plastic Wrap :rolleyes:

Anyone would think you were trying to prove a point. :D

Okay, well I've took in some suggestions, and here's what I've come out with:

for iTunes:

for iPhone:

I think they're better. R-Fly thank you very much for pointing out the bubble wrap stuff. IMO it looks much better without it.

Better, worse?

Thanks,

Zym

Better, worse?Personally, I think the icon looks ok at 512px (needs a better mask though!) but bad at 59px (or whatever the iPhone's odd icon size is) ... At that low resolution, you can't even tell that it's a globe! The multi-colored continents are impossible to distinguish, and the text doesn't stand out enough (try a small white glow around the text to isolate it) ...

You might try something that'll fit in more with the other icons, perhaps a squared globe/map with the text running across? Simple is good.

Hopefully I fixed the mask, I think I did(but what do I know =]) The little picture that I gave is at the iphone's resolution. I did the text thing like you said. What does the globe look like then? Is it at all better?

Here's my newer pictures:

Should I maybe make the globe bigger, like this?

Thanks for all the great feedback
