    Meh. I'm not sure I agree. If I wanted homogeneity I would have selected the iPhone in the first place. I guess it's a subjective matter though. Could a theme handle what you're looking for?

    they did that on windows 6.5 if i remember correctly (or maybe htc did it) but they set a basic icon template. all icons were the same size and general shape though they didn't have to look exactly the same (eg. one could have a border around the edge, one could have transparencies etc) but they were all the same size and same style/quality

    looked really clean, they should at least have a way to change the icons for apps cuz some of them have horrible HORRIBLE icons.

    like Gremote Pro *shutters*. Amazing app and i use it all the time, but i cant stand to look at it on my home screen, i had to give it its own folder to hide its shame :frown:

    There are plenty of ways to do this, but forcing devs to use a icon template is one step on the road to losing the openness that makes Android great.

    I figure it should be some guidelines or general agreement to make them a consistent size, and/or a consistent resolution. i have plenty of 1/2 vga icons on my droid and their just hard to look at. though i see what your saying
