    That's just what I've been hearing in other developer forums, not entirely sure if it's true or not.
    That may be, but it still doesn't explain why the icons are so tiny. The status bar is thinner which makes the icons so tiny that they are unreadable unless I pick up the phone and closely look at them. It's easier then to just pull the notification bar down to look at the notifications. It's mostly an issue with the weather app. But it's also an issue with the text messages. I used to be able to just glance at the phone while it was on my desk and see the temp or see the banner of the new text that came in (to see who it was from and if I needed to address it or ignore it for a while.)

    I have the .215 leak and it makes the icons better. I would have to say that the icons that adhere to the WHITE standard match up with the rest of the notification bar, so I think there has been improvement there, but apps that have COLOR notification area icons still appear slightly dimmer. This may be just because they have color which looks dimmer when the notification icon dims.

    This is clearly NOT an app problem, if it was then the app store.icon would be the correct brightness and it is not
