Tweetie needs a better icon
Here’s a beautiful array of Twitter birds and icons.
My favorite thing about Twitterific on my iPhone (and computer) was its icon — that darling, medium-blue bird with great details. But, the app only offered one way to use Twitter — reading tweets by chronology.
I needed a better Twitter app, one that would let me see Twitter by chronology, by user, by search, by replies to me and that would let me follow people within the app.
Along came Tweetie and the app has it all, except I have a dilemma. I love Tweetie and use it daily, so it has to be on my base home screen. But, the logo is really lacking — come on two speech bubbles? Even free Twitterfon has a better icon!
At the very least, Tweetie had enough sense to not choose Twittelator’s icon — an egg. And, I must say, that no matter how cool it is to have the new Tweetgrid on my iPhone, the icon tries to squeeze in too much text. I could really see a cool grid-based icon that gives the Tweetgrid desktop and phone app better branding and recognizability.
Now, please, Tweetie, pick a better icon!
