Changing an Icon

Today I came across a useful tip for developers submitting applications to the Chrome Web Store.

Recently we created a new vector-based icon for Entanglement and decided to use the new version in the Chrome Web Store. (There are a lot of square icons in the store, and hexagons are so cool.) Doing so updates the icon on everyone's "new tab" home page as well, which in turn sparked renewed interest in Entanglement. Notice a snapshot of our Entanglement web analytics above: a bump of approximately 60% more visitors on Monday (the day we uploaded the new icon) than the days before.

Up to now, we were not sure how to best reach people who have installed one of our apps and let them know that we have rolled out a major update. It seems a very easy, and almost elegant, way to do so is to simply change the app icon!


  1. I love entanglement game so much :)
    Whenever the conversation of games comes with anybody, I surely mention entanglement.

    The specific things that I like about this game are
    1)It is a puzzle
    2)It is easy as well as hard
    3)It has endless possibilities(I always like games with endless possibilities)
    4)I can challenge my friends to beat my score. It is more of a intellectual thing
    5)The ingame music is soothing and pleasant and make me wanna play more rather than being annoying

    Thank you for introducing such a wonderful game :)
    I have bought the additional packs for this game too

  2. Thanks kichuku! We're glad you enjoy it; thanks for telling others about it and for trying the expansion set!

  3. would you be interested in developing a simple visual learning game for supply chain managers? I have an artist's rendition of what it should/could entail and your style would add elegance to it. if interested, please contact me at longke@yahoo.com
    thanks fro your craft! very relaxing and enjoyable
    cheers, ken


Please keep the conversation healthy and wholesome.
