The app could perform better if developers focus on great interface. Design involves the entire user experience – from the main page to the menus and setting pages all the way down to the application icon designs.
The look of an icon matters more than you may think. If it doesn’t look good, there’s a chance that your app will be degraded from the homepage, and sent back to the tabs where it may never see the light of day. Also, it appears on the app store listing, so a mediocre icon could easily influence the number of downloads.
Creating an impressive icon is not a simple job. To help you on your way, we have gathered few stylish and innovative icons for almost all types of apps, color combination and visual effect. A few of them are concepts instead of actual app designs.
