Product 101: App Icons

I have been spending a lot of time thinking about app icons. They are so critical yet many apps out there really don’t spend enough time designing amazing icons. Most tend to be flat and really plain.

I love the idea of having icons that are metaphors for what an application does. Also, an icon is the first thing a user sees and touches and should therefore look and feel amazing.

Some examples of great app icons are:
