    What do you think of the series' icons?

    Would you rather have this one?

    Font looks really cheesy.

    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?

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

    New!

    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,

    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
