    One thing that bugs me is that the notification icon for gmail and text message look NEARLY IDENTICAL.

    On my last phone they had different colors at least. Im using Nova launcher is this a feature of that? Is it customizable?

    Help!

    Only way I know to change them is to be rooted. Then use a theme from a theme chooser

    Tapped from a Nexus

    Thanks guys. I can't be the only one that thinks they're too similar. One has an envelope, the other is the BACK of an envelope. UGh.

    They are very similar, but the "M" in Gmail is fairly distinctive, to me at least.

    You can use a different messaging app, like Handcent. That icon is different.
