    I don't know about you, but I getting sick of all the blue icons lately, such as the new Voice Memos icon. I actually liked it when it was red. What do you think?

    I don't really care about the icons, I am far more interested in functionality
    I want to use my apps, not look at their icon

    Doesn't matter to me. I swap out my icons. Same with notification tones.

    All the Utils used to have a red/brown theme going on (Calculator, Compass etc.), so the move to a blue Voice Memos icon seemed a strange one.

    Switching an icon's base color for no apparent reason does kind of hinder functionality. You have to spend more time looking for it, not only because it is different, but because it blends in with all the other blue icons.

    I think we did this the other day, albeit without the poll.

    Agreed. I really don't care what my icons look like.

    I still plan on emailing Steve... :D

    Another thing: the weather app seems useless to me as well. It looks like a widget that takes up the whole screen rather than an app.

    I don't really care what color the icons are... as long as they are pretty...:D
    Seriously, I barely look at the icons. Functionality is much more important.

    I liked it when it was in red too, but I don't really care , plus, its in a folder so its not that easy to see.

    My personal favorite color combination is red and black or orange and black. So if it doesn't change oh well...it is what it is.

    wow you must live a very boring life to be worried about things like this

    glad the poll shows a majority of people agree with that sentiment

    Blue is way overused in iOS. 75% of my apps have a blue icon, and it really bothers me.

    My thoughts exactly!
