    Hi guys,
    I thought I'd might as well jump on the bandwagon and give my take on the icon for the rumoured 'Healthbook' app. Introducing:

    Health Center

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    As with all my icons, Health Center uses the Grid System as well as the system colour scheme (the gradient taken from the iOS 7.1 Phone/Messages/FaceTime icons). I didn't think the icon should be red as that would suggest a health issue, rather than good health.

    Opinions?

    Not sure what a plus sign has anything to do with a Health app. The image was likely fake.

    That's the Europeans sign for pharmacy. However, here in the US we ain't got anything like that.

    Really? I'm from the UK where it's used all the time, hence why I used that image.

    A white background and thicker green cross would do. It's weird teally unlike all other icons this will be hard to be minimalist yet clear as to what it is.

    Fits the Grid, colour scheme, blah blah blah...
    (Literally the quickest I've ever designed an icon)

    Yeap! I know when I was in France we had the same signs, then when I moved here in the US all we have is a big P H A R MA CY sign on any CVS, Walgreen, Randalls, Walmart, target ect.

    Another European sign for pharmacy is that weird snake coiled around a bowl.
    Here's a picture:

    Not bad I would be happy with that. I would just like the + a little thicker.

    Very nice icon, but I don't think I could handle anymore white on my home screen though. A green or red background would look great too.

    Really? Thats interesting to know. In the UK, I don't think I've seen a Pharmacy/Chemist without that sign.

    The snake one was used in Pharmacies, and on ambulance vehicles in Albania too. The cross is more used now.
