It would be fun if the color of the app icon changes to the preferred theme color
That would be nice, rather than having to set the application notification badge to display what day it is.
That would be nice. The solution with notification badge is not really a good solution.
Unfortunately the iOS feature only allows the app icon to be changed manually, we can't do this automatically in the background. So that rules out changing the icon to show the date. See the Apple documentation here: https://developer.apple.com/ios/human-interface-guidelines/icons-and-images/app-icon/
However, we are considering offering App Icons that you could select to match your colour theme, is that something you'd be interested in?
@Ben Hamey: I for one would like an option to customize the color of the icon.
@Ben Hamey: Ability to change the app icon color would be nice, but honestly it is not interesting for me.
This is exactly what I was going to write!
Man that is a great idea!
Please, please... implement it. The date in icon’s "ear" is just awkward.
Exactly my question, thanks!
Yes, and also if the design was in our control - e.g. dots or no dots!
Developers now have the opportunity to change app icon and it would be great if you could integrate an automatic date change like the stock calendar app
We are pleased to announce that this feature is now live in v2.8.5! You can choose a custom theme colour for your icon in Preferences. Enjoy!
