    hhhmmm, more width would fill the white space better.
    Or move the description from bottom of the icon to the right.

    Most people use a 16:9 screen, why not just make the app icons 16:9?

    It's better, but it's not a speckled hen.


    I still think proper icons should be used for that, and screenshots should be used, for well, screen shots.

    The problem is no one has icons. And I can't require an icon, no one would upload. So the option is there for devs to use an icon, but if they don't one is created for them out of a screenshot.

    How about have a separate icon upload and that is used as a app icon, if one is not uploaded then the first screenshot is used instead.



    And what size is an icon to be, bear in mind, icons are normally square-ish
