can you make a new icon for app browser
« on: May 27, 2011, 12:24:23 AM »
I suggest the icon for the app browser be changed to an arrow pointing down. Similar to what you see with download links.

People automatically connect that with downloads. So it would make it immediately recognizable.

Is there a user who would like to make a suitable new icon for the Tiny Core appbrowser?

If people have other ideas, please share them.

Many people see what is. Some people see what can be, and make a difference.

If you have such an icon and it "matches" our current "theme', i.e. gray/silver and perhaps some blue.
And is unencumbered, i.e., free to use. Send to me or let me know where it is available.

I will consider as I am in the process of factoring out "load local" thereby apps browser would become a download vehicle and the current icon could be used for the new program.

IMHO, the tcz text is unreadable at the standard icon size of 48x48.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Do not use floppy disk as an icon. Myself I do not associate it with download or installation. A younger person even can not recognize it.

And tinycore doesn't even fit on a floppy, right? ;)
So can I start calling myself wise and old on the internet now?
