If you want to add photo in your icon or you think that adding photos is a great idea to make your icon different one, then stop here and don’t use this strategy again. Here I stopped you because this is one of the bad ideas to make your mobile application icon worse. No one will watch your app icon, so say a big no.

9. Does icon speak features? Isn’t it

If your mobile app icon speaks out its features then you are doing a great job because in the play store, there is hardly some application whose icon says its features through face. Your audience never watches long description about your app.  If your icon can say about the description then work hard for this process. This will help you to get the success of your app.
