Anyone wanna see what a new app would look like. With the same theme, come up with your own new icons for
City Story
Farm Story
Restaurant Story
Bakery Story
Empire Story
Nightlcub Story
Zoo Story
Treasure Story
and Fashion Story

Here's an example that I made myself:

It's fine, all you gotta do is cut and make an icon out of that (rounded square) then fill it

Any talented people in the room, or should I say forum. Well, you dont have to be "talented" to make one, you just put your mind and creativity into it!

@bigbux, are you on apple software?

@bigbux, are you on apple software?

Right now I'm running on a Mac, I'm always on PC, but a Mac right now.

To make it easier, here's a simple way to do it (on Mac)

Google Search, or go to TeamLava's Facebook page (ex: http://www.facebook.com/citystory )
Then go to their pictures, and download one application icon from them

Save it to a good place .
This is mostly for reference, or for taking the name if it has one. (ex: http://i56.tinypic.com/15mk51l.png )

Open up anything such as iWeb, Microsoft Word, Pages, Powerpoint, or Keynote
Go to shapes: http://i53.tinypic.com/foetep.jpg
Make a rounded square (base) then put a Colored Line or Frame around the square : http://i56.tinypic.com/2ch8cxg.jpg
Then insert any picture into the square, find icons or take pictures to put into the square, then put the word on top.
Customize it as your own.
