Neven made these 2x icons for the various "Settings" lists in our iOS apps. They're super fun to do.

One reason I love doing these is that they're at a pretty perfect intersection of "simple and utilitarian" and "fun and colorful". Glyph-style buttons lack color and texture, while app icons tend to be a little more involved, and they usually communicate branding more than function. These little dudes are just right.
For the curious, what these look like at 50%.
My only critique is that the yellow key icon is 1px higher than the rest of the set, for some reason.
I always love icons like these. They can convey so much meaning in such a small space.
@Ollin Thanks for the reduced version! As for the yellow icon, I will never live down this shame. Grrrhhhh.
This is how much thought process went:
1) Looked at thumbnail "OOH ICONS!"
2) Looked at shot "OH... a crappy attempt."
3) Come back to shot an hour later "Wait a minute.. there's something else here, but what is it?! http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mc4ji77xO61riqizno1_500.gif "
4) Come back again after shower. "OH WHAT I'M A RETARD, these are awesome. Different but still cool."
Now you know why I have no friends.
This is exactly the porn i was looking for
These are nice, but I think the inner highlight that extends around the edge of the icons could be softened to a 1 or 1.5px inner glow at a lower opacity.
What's more, it would be nice if the shadow below the icons had a subtle spread to it instead of being sharp (1px y-axis offset, 1px spread instead of 2px y-axis offset and no spread).
