    The new Android one is so good. When it updated I let out an audible 'oooohh'. Having full alpha support makes Android icons infinitely more interesting to me.

      I don't think full alpha support would work very well on iOS.. The Springboard would look a gods-awful mess if every icon was differently shaped. It might work if users had more control over icon placement like in Android, but, alas..

      Still, I agree with you that the Android icon is nicer..

        Totally agree it wouldn't work on iOS, just that it can make icon design more interesting on Android when it's taken advantage of.
