    So if you open Blackberry World you'll notice that it displays these glorious big icons.

    It got me wondering why the icons on the main OS screen aren't this big? Personally i think it would make for a much more attractive OS that the current smaller icons with gray border.

    I also noticed that these size icons would easily fit the same dimensions of the screen and still give you 4x4 on the blackberry Z10 screen for instance.

    Here is an example of what I mean, think how glorious the OS main screen could look with these big icons:

    That would be great, but how would you make readable the apps name? Maybe a solid black rectangle just below the name? Mm...

    Well unless you're using a white background I don't think there would be a problem.

    Don't know, I think any bright color would make it hard to read and change the color depending on the background automatically would mean another process running, and my battery is suffering enough! :P

    My opinion...
    In a perfect world, I'd like the option in settings to choose between the BB World style icon and the current icon set (with the shadow removed).

    That said, I could see issues with the BB World icons/no text for home screen bookmarks. How could we identify one from another?
