    There seems to be a lot of opinions on 10.3's icon design.

    I for one think that most of them are too simple/minimal except the remember icon which I think is very well designed.

    I hope that BlackBerry makes a very distinctive version of a flat UI, one that is not child/crayon like.


    The camera icon really needs to be replaced.

    Lets talk about it here since BlackBerry is listening!

    Here's another from yesterday:

    I really hope the camera icon doesnt end up like that. Looks like an evil always watching eye.

    I think this set looks better overall except for the browser icon but most are good. Exception being the camera and text icons and a lot haven't been updated.

    Im not digging the file manager, phone, help, tutorial icons. They look like the designer didnt give much design thought to it, unlike the remember icon.

    I think, there shouldn't be a problem for developers make all the icons customizable. Load PNG or SVG file for every default-icon, which I don't like and that's it. Because lot of people don't like the simple style. That's very close to this:

    And when I'll be drunk, can't recognize, what these icons means, and which is which...

    I don't think that new icons are ugly, but old one are really good looking together with semi transparent "boxes" around them. New ones have same problem as Android icons - they are unbalanced because different icon sizes. Feel is not coherent any more.
    And I don't like this BBRYs approach like " we are listening you" so we have changed icons. There was some other demands shouted louder toward BBRy and they didn't listen.

    Remember app icon is the best. The others range from "ok" to "crap"
