Help Select a New Icon for SuperSU

It’s not often that a developer of many prolific applications gives the rest of the world the power to pick the icon for one of his apps. In this visual world, the icon is what the user sees when they decide what they want to open. And very often, the icon is what sets the first impression for the usefulness or value of the app. Essentially, it becomes the app’s identity.

XDA Elite Recognized Developer Chainfire decided that since many users were unhappy with SuperSU’s new icon Super Andy, he should let them pick its replacement. After a few months of taking user submissions, he is finally ready to let the voting begin. On his site, he has 150 user-submitted icon, ranging from the very basic to the intricate and complex. You can choose to vote for the few that you like, as well as choose the ones you don’t like. Chainfire does ask, however, that you limit the number of votes to a handful of positive and negative selections.

The competition is slated to take as long as there is significant voting activity, and his goal is to use the winning icon in SuperSU v1.00. He does reserve the right to veto the winning selection if it does not adhere to the Android Design Guidelines or if it does not match the color-scheme for the app. Other than that, the options are wide-open, so make sure you visit his website to begin the voting process. May the best icon win!
