We are publishers of one of the top 10 weather apps for the iPhone, simply named "Weather Radar".
As you might expect with such a clever name, it provides real time weather radar and storm tracking. We are soon launching our updated version for the iPad, and want to update our stale icon with something snazzy. You can check out screenshots of the application and the existing icon on our website.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
This application is for a world wide audience of iPhone and iPad users. We want to update it with something a little more professional looking.
We need standard app store icon requirements. A 512x512 PNG that also looks good when sized down to 57x57. We actually would like the icon to sport an optional banner for the iPad version, which is called "Weather Radar HD". A little stripe across one corner maybe.
Icon should contain no text, other than that I have very few specifics. It should convey weather, and in particular radar or storm tracking. That could be a radar scope, or radar signal, a weather map, etc.
I've attached the existing icon, which while it has the right feel, is certainly bland and flat. I bet you real artists can do better!
