We would like an effective icon that reflects the nature of the app and grabs people's attention. Our application is a GPS tracking app. It allows people to use their phone to follow other phones.
We have attached an icon that we REALLY like, but would obviously need something different. We think it basically tells the user what our app does in one image (phone, radar/map, gps pin). We like the "3D" look of the icon with the pin overlaying the edge and the phone going behind it.
The Icon needs to include the following sizes:
Not required, but would be helpful would also be an accompanying startup screen:
640x960 (Highest iPhone)
480x854 (Highest Android Resolution)
1) As you may (or may not know), the Apple App store trims a 90px radius for each corner on the 512x512 icons. Please plan on the that in your design.
2) This application is cross-platform. If you use a phone, a generic looking phone is preferred.
