I took a couple of days off from blogging do to the ad nausea I felt from the onslaught of ads during the Super Bowl.
Don't get me wrong, I love me a good Super Bowl ad, but really, they are becoming so predictable, and do to the fact that they cost SO much, I loose a little respect for the company forking over the cash for a sixty second spot during these rough economic times.

Anyway! I have been wanting to do this post for sometime now. I love the iphone, I love the ability to download third party apps. It is really a breakthrough for technology.
And for the most part, the apps are really great and quite useful. But I am not ashamed to tell you that there have been times where I have not downloaded an app based on the look of the icon.

Call me shallow!

But really, if you want me to shell out anywhere from 99 cents, to sometimes up to 20 bucks, you have to make my phone look cooler then it already is. It could be the most useful application out there, but if looks like garbage, I'm not going to put it on my phone. :)

The icons pictured above where chosen strictly on the look of the icons. Some are useful, some I have never used. Like the one with the great looking robot head (far right, middle.) Android FX, all it does is make your voice sound like a robot, but for real, that is one bad ass looking robot. Then there are ones that are just fun. Take Rolando, (top right.) It has great color, great characters, and its a fun game. Perfect icon for fun. Tuner Internet Radio, its not the greatest app for radio, but that is a really great icon. Put it this way, If I had to choose between an app that did the same thing then another, but the difference is the icon. You know which one I'm going for.
