Android: UberCon [Wonderful White] Icons Set

Well, after both my TallMin (20,000+ downloads) and aSmoothstar (10,000+ downloads) icons have been so popular with you guys, please hello to my new icon set, UberCon! I have to say, personally these are my favourite text icons I have created yet. They really do look fantastic on your phone. The idea behind these icons was again a single line icon with a unique font face. Something that was readable, but more importantly LARGE! One of the issues facing me and others as text icon creators is we are limited in what we can fit into the space provided. That generally means words are stretched, or squeezed in to make room for the whole word.

For some people this is ok, but it didn't sit totally right with me. So with the UberCon set I set myself a maximum number of characters for each word in an icon. This meant for some words/apps I had to be inventive with the name, in some cases shortening the word by removing some characters whilst either still making the word readable, or thereby making the word a sort of abbreviated alternative. I'm sure most of you have seen the paragraph below before?

Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a total mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe.

If mixing the characters up in a word still allows us to read it, then might the same be true by removing a character? Well who knows, you can decide after trying it out yourself!

I'm also going to stagger the release of different colours. This pack will include the white version, which I think is quite a popular colour, but feel free to request the next colour to be released in the comments. I'm more likely to release one that has been asked for the most! If you wish to donate to show your thanks, then your vote for colours may come sooner (and you'll also have the internal satisfaction about helping me keep this site up!) :P

Oh, and did I mention that there are 313 icons in this set? The biggest yet!
