Ryan Gold replied to Ryan Gold's discussion Does your restaurant have an iPhone App?
"Good point. Since I am only talking about a standard iPhone icon, I suppose the only ill feeling one might get is that it is taking up space on your screen. In which case you can shuffle it off to another screen, and since the release of iOS 4 you…"

Tony Giuliani replied to Ryan Gold's discussion Does your restaurant have an iPhone App?
"Whether it's annoying or not will depend on the size of the icon and frequency that it is displayed. If had to see that every day, multiple times a day, I personaly would be annoyed, If I'm annoyed by that, it will transfer that emotion to…"

"Okay, thanks for saying that! I see it all too often and I just cringe when I see people doing that. Super annoying! lol"
