does anyone else think the new youtube icon on the iphone is gross?
Shh! You'll upset the fanboys!
That's me. How dare you
You're right. It's fugly. Should have been red and black.
Doesn't really bother me, but I'm surprised they didn't just use YouTube's logo as the icon.
I kinda like it. If the point is to keep it an icon and not a logo, I think this does the job pretty well. Plus I like the juxtaposition between the very 1950s looking TV and the idea that YouTube is the way a lot of people share vids. As far as I know, no other phones have one-touch access to YouTube, eh?
but if your going for the whole revolutionary and new technology label for the phone, why have an old tv as an icon on there.. i like all the aqua type icons that are on the home screen, that thing just looks out of place...
I just posted this very thing in a different thread.
One word: UGLY.
Yeah they should of just used the logo.
I am sure you will be able to change the icons through a hack later...
Nope...I think its fine.
Good point. But even better post for word choice!
Yes, that is exactly what I thought. Very Un-apple. A brown 1960's TV or something. May look better in the flesh though?
You know why the myth of first generation Apple products having "problems" exist? Because the Apple fanbase is such an scrutinizing bunch that they would find fault with even the minuscule of details, such as the design of an icon.
I think it is fine by the way.
im not saying its a huge deal, or a deal breaker... relax... im just saying, why did they choose that over the youtube icon? i think the youtube icon would have been much nicer than an old tv that looks like its from back to the future...
its fine how it is. and for the reason of not using the youtube icon....
well what if they open up the 'app' a bit more and allow other services and such. this way its not constricting and limiting to youtube.
I'll take an icon over a corporate logo any day on my home screen.
Someone should just write a book "101 things WRONG with the iPhone"
Short of that, just give up.
It's perfect, love it.
And I am one of the ones who said there was no way the 12th icon would be YouTube.
Kinda looking forward to it actually. After all, if Apple is including it in a world where there isn't much included (so far) they must think it's necessary.
yeah, it reminds me of a really old tv. Exactly what I want on my futuristic iphone.
It is awful.
It clearly sticks out.
i think its ugly
could of made it more modern looking or something idk it just doesnt fit in
Dozens of phone types have access to YouTube already, via their mobile access page:
The Helios Ocean, most HTC models, Nokia, Ericsson, Motorola... lots.
I'm surprised youtube would even stick their name on something that pothetic.
that icon aint got no alibi, its UGLY! hahaha
i think it's pretty charming... doesn't bother me one bit.
