Chapter 7. All About Icons > Application Icons

Application Icons

Application (or program) icons are typically rather fancy ones. These belong to the actual applications (the software programs that you work in). Each application has its own design so they all look different, but what they have in common is that many try to give some sort of visual clue as to what they do. For instance, below you can see that the TextEdit icon represents a word processing program; the iMovie icon represents a movie-making program. When you create your own document in an application, the document usually has some visual clue that it belongs to that particular application, as you can see below and on the following page.


Each of these application icons (TextEdit and iMovie) gives you a visual clue of what it does. Each of their documents also gives you a visual clue that it was created in that particular application.
