It's ten time more ownable, and fits their rebrand.
Moaning about the colour and saying it's going to make you use Apple Music instead lol.
I dunno, while its certainly intense, the new green is way more current. That old color is just so drab and dull, reminds me of the early 2000's. While I can't say I'm totally in love with such a bright green, I think everyone is going to get used to it pretty quick.
I can't believe I'm talking about colors like this, but I agree. The old green reminds me of downloading songs on filesharing programs like Limewire and Kazaa back in the early-2000s.
I approve of this new green.
The shade of green is growing on me but I'm still not used to looking at the new iOS app logo – It may be the black surround that's bothering me...it just looks out of place.
Note on the choice of green: it's quite similar to the colour used by Kickstarter.
I think placing it on the black is killing it for me too, adds a level of cheapness that I just don't care for. On white, its reasonably fresh looking.
I would've preferred a green square with the stripes still in the centre instead of that black background.
wow. this makes the old one look even better. terribly cold and blue-ish tones in the new one. sorry. great that apple's music is on its way.
I think the opposite. To me, it makes the new one look way better. And at first, when I saw the app update on my phone, I thought the new one was ugly. But after seeing the comparison, the new one is much better and better. It feels much more futuristic also. Like a neon almost. I like it a lot more now.
I like it a lot actually, but then, I'm a sucker for a nice, cold green. It feels incredibly much fresher than that old, tired (lime-puke) green.
Looking forward to see how it looks on desktop. I'm a little bit worried it's going to be a little too bright on so many UI elements.
I find it incredibly lazy of them to just pop the logo on a black background on iOS though. I don't know what to do instead, but I'm sure some genius designer could come up with something.
I hate the new green color, to be honest. It just feels so cold and lifeless, the older green was a lot more inviting. This new green feels like a tryhard attempt at being trendy. Also, this new green clashes horribly with the Evernote, iMessage, and Phone icons that are near it on the homescreen.
I approve the new green.
I prefer the older color, but then I'm not into these candy-bright colors that seem indistinguishable as Mr. Donnelly's figure illustrates. The old color does look like a highlighter, but I don't have the associations with it that others here do.
How long before this new color seems old and passe'? Will a future iOS design change make the new Spotify logo look as quaint as iOS6 often does today?
I like the green when overlaid on a light background, but not when it is on a black background. Maybe their black needs to be toned down to suit or something, but it sure isn't sitting right.
New green FTW!
looks pretty close to Kickstarter green.
I think it stand out a lot compared to the other apps
noticed this last night, hadn't realised that there was an update, and just thought my eyes were too tired looking at my screen.
