    (I added the icons of appshopper.com, but keep in mind, that these are not the icons displayed on you homescreen and my ratings belongs to the homescreen icons!)

    That's an odd question...

    If I had to pick, I'd say either Evernote or Wordpress.

    @ Oliver and NotYou...

    Could you guys embed the images for these icons into your posts, using the images from AppShopper.com, so that we can see them — like so:

    Evernote:

    If you're interested in icon design, there was a great post a few weeks back by Gedeon Maheux of the Iconfactory.

    They are responsible for these:

    [app]Frenzic[/app].

  9. Regarding the icon on the first post, WC Pool has an icon very similar- a Pool ball as the pic, with a black background to make it stand out from all the square icons.

    Best: Microsoft Seadragon, and iPhysics lite. Worst: BoD 2 and all the factory install app icons(exception; Youtube). Sorry, technologically inept, don't know how to embed pics.

    I don't need an icon which just tells me what's written under the icon. The same goes for Sim City and Spore.
