[resolved] Apple Badges (9 posts)

    Hello - I've noticed that if I choose not to display the app's description, I also lose the Apple badges.

    Can description and the badges be separated? I don't want to see the description, but I want the badges.

    Also, it would be cool if you used Apple's artwork for the visual representation of compatibility. Or gave the option for a little cleaner artwork with images similar to these ones?

    I'm more concerned with which devices an app is compatible with, but not necessarily being so specific as to which versions of which devices. Know what I mean?

    The Apple supplied badges are the ones being used. They appear just below the description.

    Great idea about allowing the Badges to be placed separately from the description. I will add a setting to the next version.

    As for the icons that represent the models that the app will run on, I haven't found any except for the ones being used. If you can point me to some better designed icons, I will gladly incorporate them into the plugin.

    You can view the original Photoshop files here:

    Thanks for putting those psd files up here. How 'bout if I grab the silhouette icons from this (http://linkmaker.itunes.apple.com/badges/English.zip) and you could incorporate them into the code? That would be awesome! I'll make them into psd files if that's cool with you? :-)

    Download that file and check it out. These images are much cleaner. It would be cool if these were incorporated into your amazing plug-in!

    Sweeeeeeet. Can I give you a bit more feedback? When I choose to include compatibility info I only need to know if it's made for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. I don't need it to say iPad 3 3G, iPad 3 wifi, iPad 4, etc. First, it stands to reason that if it works with iPad 3 with 3G the app will also work with iPad 3 with wifi only. I'd like it if you left off the little details. Let people read that stuff directly on the app store when they buy.

    If an app is only for iPad, just show a picture of an iPad and say that it works with iPads. If an app is for iPhone (and iPod touch) just show a pic of an iPhone and iPod touch, skip the iPad because nobody wants an iPhone app on their iPad. And finally, if an app is optimized for all Apple devices show an iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch and show the + and mention that it's Universal.

    :-)
