I never liked the Google Play icons, they always seemed dull and out of colour. With a host of other brighter and better designed app icons surrounding it on my mobile, I had a hard time locating the Google Play store icons.
Google seems to have realized and have now changed the colour of the icons making them brighter and sharper. They no longer have the dull gradient look, they now seem to stand out amongst the other apps on my mobile screen 🙂
The new look Google Play icon design update will be rolling over the next few weeks, what you think of the new design. I love them 🙂
