Bring back the icons from early Launchpad? :)

Asked by Zearin

Although Launchpad's navigation is now much more compact and out-of-the-way (which is a Good Thing™), one thing I really miss from LP's earlier days were its icons.

Could the UI team look into bringing the icons back? I'm not suggesting you simply roll back the UI, but look for a way to make the icons work in harmony with LP's current navigation.

Color coding is a great way to increase the usability of any navigation system, and so are icons. Although I believe colors have faster recognition, I liked the both color and icons working in tandem. Pictures “read” easier than words. :) (And they don't even require translation!)

The UI team are creating new icons and designs right now for the 2.2.9 Launchpad release. The navigation will be changed. While I am certain that old icons will not return, I am also sure the context you see them is will change for the better.

Can you help with this problem?
