You might not notice it on the outside, but a space icon in the bottom right corner of the screen will let you know if you’ve seen a new version of a game or app, or if you’re missing out on a cool feature.
The icon is usually the best indicator you need to know whether the app or game is a contender to make your next trip to the store.
Space icons are not only useful, they’re also a big drawcard.
In an article on Forbes, Stephen Giannetti wrote that “space icons remind you to keep your eyes peeled for cool, interesting, or surprising things, and they give you a chance to pick up something even if you have no idea what it is.”
Space icons can also be used as a way to quickly jump to an application or game you might want to try.
You can see a collection of space icons and how they look in the gallery above.

For example, they can be used in place of an app’s name, such as in a news feed, or they can also have a more unique meaning.
The best of both worlds are the space icons that are meant to be a nod to a particular game or application.
The space icon used in this image is an illustration of the game Star Wars: The Old Republic.
It stands for “Star Wars: Galactic Republic,” the game from the upcoming MMO Star Wars Galaxies.
Star Wars Galores game title is the name of the new game.
As mentioned above, space icons have their place, and if you like what you see, it can make sense to buy that game.
However, if you do want to find out what’s new with a particular app or a game, then you’ll want to look for a space symbol in the upper right corner.
In this example, you see a space with an icon of a Star Wars game.
Space icons have the most obvious use when you’re looking for a new app or gaming title, but there are also many more useful and clever uses for space icons.
