    Ok. This may be petty. I just updated BlackBerry World on my Q10.

    The app icon I have now is dull and flat looking. I hate it. HATE IT!

    Why can't BlackBerry World leave the icon alone?

    I agree by itself it looks bad with the older style surrounding it. However when it is on the 10.3 OS it blends in nicely and looks like its in its natural surroundings. I am not a huge fan of the overall new OS look, but want to give it a try before I rush to judgement.

    Get used, when you update to 10.3 all icons will look more or less flat.
    It's a question of taste.Other than that 10.3 is faster than 10.2.1 (I tried leaked 10.3).
    I Iove the icons and faster perfomance of 10.3.

    It blends in nicely when all the other icons are updated, I do prefer the old icons but it does make my z30 look a lot more modern.

    Dang! Do you remember way back when, when we could make themes for our devices? I made a theme for my BlackBerry that had no icons. It was all text. For the "Browser" there was just a line of text that said "Browser", etc.

    It was simple. Black and White. There was peace in the world. Children laughed and played together. Dogs and cats were jovial with each other. The hole in the Ozone was teeny tiny. Sasquatch would actually come to your camp ground and eat burgers with you. Those were the days.

    Actually, my "text" theme was modeled after another text theme that I had downloaded. That one was by a guy whose name escapes me now, but his profile avatar was "Kyle Reese" aka "John Connors'" dad in the original "TERMINATOR" movie. Ahhhh... the good old days.

    Anywho. Well, this theme was very simple. Mainly I liked it because it was black and white. No flashy colors. No Zip. No zing. Just Henry Ford approved Black and White. After I was forced to OS7 I could not make themes anymore. So, so sad. I downloaded and or bought the 'darkest' themes that I could. I spent the equivalent of Zimbabwe's GDP on themes.

    My favorite theme ever besides the text theme was the "Porsche" theme that I rocked on my 9810.

    So... fast-forward to my Q10. I was taken aback by the colors and brightness but they grew on me. I now love the vibrancy (is that a word?) of the icons. I still prefer a dark look. My wallpaper is a custom one I made for my 9810. All that being said. Now I am gonna be forced to a flat color that I don't like. Yay. If anyone is interested, go check out the tons and tons of wallpapers I made for OS7. They're awesome. Like me.

    Yea, I'm not a big fan of coming flat icons. I'd noticed something different about the BBW icon, just didn't really click until you pointed it out. Oh well, can't win 'em all I guess.
