    Some other concepts for an icon for the upcoming update of an app. I never knew it would be so hard to find a successful approach.
    As always, your comments are more than welcome and greatly appreciated.

    It's difficult to give a suggestion without knowing the concept of the app... because it might be either spot on or too abstract.
    So... I'll do the reverse, explaining what I "get" from the icons. :)

    The impact message from the central icon is *information* while just at a second time looking at the blue "background" I imagine something related with other iOS apps, or something related about the iPhone itself.
    So, I could guess it gives informations about the apps you might get for your iPhone.

    About the execution: I love it. Well, I'm biased to the white/blue palette kinds, but it's really a well balanced solution. The blue background is sharp and looks like a modernized version of a high-quality renaissance tapestry, with the item in the center that feels like a gem laid on the blue textile.

    Hello, @Davide 'Folletto' Casali. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, I really appreciate it. This is one of the most helpful and detailed comments. Ever. (:

    First, to solve the mystery, the icon is for an updated version of a push notifications-app for ifun.de and iphone-ticker.de, since 2001 premier german sources of information for all things Apple. There's a logo I should use, because its already well know and the brand for both sites. Although I think it's maybe outdated, I do not want to change it with an app icon in the first place. Maybe we'll find some time and a way to do so during the update of both pages within the next couple of weeks. Then I will start to think about the icon again ...

    To read some reverse explaining about is maybe the right way to work on an icon, or at least a nice possibility to prove the icon works, or not.

    Awesome. :)

    After seeing the website, why not using the icon as the above, just without the "i"? So it has the branding *and* the beauty of your current solution. :)
    ...because, in the end, every time you see that icon it will have the name of the app below, so I don't think there's a need to communicate the branding again. :)
