    I would guess delete the app and reinstall?

    I'm sure they'll filter through to our devices eventually, I think they're all pretty new.

    Why would Apple force an icon change?

    Anyway, have you tried deleting it and redownloading?

    Speaking of Dropship, anyone noticed the new level on the downloads page, "Touch To Go". Thankfully it doesn't look as challenging as the Rolando map.

    On Mobile App Store I see no changes. On my itunes on the apications page I have seen a bit diferent. Like some have a 50% sale on the icon. Appshopper has the latest I believe.

    Updated Icons... (from a iPhone developer/publisher)

    The icon that you see on the AppStore CAN be different than the icon you see on your phone. When developers submit applications to Apple for publishing, they send the application by itself with a icon embedded that is already a preformatted 57x57 icon for the iPhone, and then we separately submit a 512x512 icon for them to use in the AppStore. This is why some icons you see on your Applications list don't exactly match up to the one on your phone. A perfect example of it is the "Billy Frontier" app. It's AppStore icon looks similar but different than on the phone. This lets developers do this whole silly thing everyone is doing now and putting the ON SALE embedded into the icon on the app store but not seeing that on your phone. :)

    Hope that clears things up a bit.
