Inputtie – App Icons

With the beta for Inputtie drawing very near Oli and I are adding some final touches to the build and doing those “things we meant to do for ages”.  One of those things being the app icon. This is the icon you will see on your shortcuts and in your taskbar area so its going to be pretty visible.

Oli, my partner-in-crime has whipped up 2 different versions with 2 variations on each version. See what you think:

I personally am favouring the circle icon with the border, however I worry that it looks too much like the Internet Explorer icon.

What do you all think?

The Evolutionary Void

Just thought I would post about my favourite author Peter F. Hamilton.

His latest book has just arrived on my desk and I cant wait to start reading it. Its the final book in a void trilogy and the exciting conclusion to a great many story lines.

In celebration im currently re-listening to the second book “The Temportal Void” on audiobook. Its odd listening to a book you have already read as the names and places are pronounced differently and the character accents are different from what I imagined, but still very enjoyable :)

If you enjoy mind-bending high-tech far-future space-opera or are simply a fan of science fiction I couldn’t recommend this series more, come to think of it go and read all of Peter F. Hamilton’s books, you wont regret it!
