About 18 months ago I opened an issue on Github and proposed it. It got a bit of interest from a couple people.
Billthefarmer said he doesn’t tend to upgrade icons but if someone were to implement it he will likely put it through.
The entire ticket has disappeared, which is strange to me, I thought that tickets stayed on Github forever… I saw it up six months ago. Bill had simply closed it. A couple of people on Github were passionate about it.
My account at Github doesn’t work anymore, I try to login and it treats me as spam for no reason. I just cbf with github anymore.
If anyone is interested I’ll upload or email the svg, or drop it in a (non-GAFAM) dropbox or something.
Can’t upload the SVG. Popup said svg is not authorized. I’ll upload all the files, including adaptive icon layers in different resolutions that are needed, to a file sharing service if you want to run with this. If the app developer thinks it’s too different tell me.
I’ll do the Where’s My Stuff icon soon. I had some fun with that one.
PS. If anyone wants to do the pull request for the (Text) Editor app also please tell me and I’ll upload all files needed in the different resolutions, including the SVG. Bill the Farmer did say that he’d be open to a PR.
I have just noticed this. I have had several issues raised with suggested icons for my apps. The problem is that it usually doesn’t appear that there has been any research done on the requirements for app icons on android. The original of the icon needs to be at least 512x512, preferably 1024x1024 or an svg so the various sizes can be scaled from it and also for the app icon for F-Droid in the metadata. Also, in this case the subtle shading in the existing icon has been ignored.
