Lots of hooks in this idea too. You could hold an Icon Contest, ask customers to show their smartphone covers and share the story of your favorite apps. Every story helps. Every story creates trust, a sense of community and your brand gets smarter. Track who have your icon on their phone and say THANK YOU by sharing links back and curating their (customer) content into your site, social nets and blogs (with permission and attribution).
