We're going to roll out icons for our anti-features soon. Here's a preview, what do you think?
@fdroidorg Nice idea, and some cool icons there.
@fdroidorg If you keep text along it should be nice :)
@fdroidorg its so sad like :c
@fdroidorg very nice :-) that's really helpful!
@fdroidorg why not work with exodus privacy to check that out an let people see for themselves what is wrong?
@fdroidorg Only looking at the icons I had a hard time guessing what any of those mean.
@fdroidorg Very nice and a great idea.
Just the icon for tracking seems a bit hard to 'read'; how about just an eye (?)
@fdroidorg looks great 💜 Its important to emphasise on anti features.
"This app depends on non-free apps" and "This app tracks and reports your activity" icons are not as good as the rest, but as long as you keep the text with them, it should be a cool improvement :)
@fdroidorg Much cooler than pure text used before. Great Job!
@fdroidorg Agree w/ others. Too complicated. My 2ct:
- Outdated: clock w/ exclamation mark
- Sec Bug: simple bug (no lock)
- Ads: [AD!]
- everything unfree: chains
- tracking: simply one eye; or surveillance cam
@fdroidorg i like the idea, but most of the symbols are not really intuitive. :/
@fdroidorg nice idea, but I don't like the icon set at all. They're not very easy to understand…
@fdroidorg The one for "tracks and reports activity" should perhaps be simplified, too many lines make it hard to recognize at a glance. The other ones look good!
@fdroidorg I like it!
@fdroidorg Looking nice.
"Non free assets" somehow reminds me of a movie icon.
Can't figure out what the icon for "depends on non free assets" is supposed to mean...
@fdroidorg Is the ":C" just a sad face? I would also recommend chains, handcuffs or iron bars in its place.
I guess, that works. Even if users don't understand it, they will see an icon that kind of looks like a sad face, so they might avoid it.
Chains, hand cuffs or iron bars might also be quite good, though, because they can explain better than words that this about freedom, not about money.
@fdroidorg NonFreeNet icon would much better fit UpstreamNonFree (rain comes from "up there"). And for NonFreeNet, an icon based on the "two monitors with a cable" (aka "network connection") would be more intuitive. NoSourceSince could have a stylized "404 web page" (though 410 would be more precise). A bug for tracking. Not sure about NonFreeDep.
Not complaining, I like the idea! And non-mentioned icons are fine! 😃
@IzzyOnDroid @fdroidorg Knowing the set of antifeatures F-Droid has I might have been able to assosicate correctly, it's hard to tell.
However I think the "switch" icon (? NonFreeDep) is a particularely unrecognizable one, and the Tracking icon immediately stood out to me as "too complicated". I also think the the "copyright frownie" (:C) is not very recognizable and takes away the whitespace within the icons.
I really like the one for security vulnerability. Good job!
I am sorry to give negative feedback, but I do not find the icons clear enough.
- Many icons do not convey a meaning without the text
- the :c is a nice idea, but it works against having a clear, easy to detect shape. A icon should be recognized without thinking about the image, so keep them simple
- I guess upstream should be an arrow, but I saw a house
- I have no idea at all, what the "code no longer available" icon should be
- Colors would help to distinguish the icons faster
@fdroidorg But nevertheless thank you for your great work. And adding icons is a good idea, I just think they can still use some work.
Nonfree network serv:
Plain rainy cloud, no face
Megaphone with three straight soundwave-lines
Topology graph, with circle nodes and lines
Just an eye
Add a jigsaw protrusion rightwards too
Excellent.. Please keep what they mean too along with the icons
add them. please.
