Just feeding back issues I’ve had with the retailer icons shown in app.
Having the icons is really great as provides a great visual clue.
- The icons that do show up are highly pixelated and need an antialias mask. Wasabi for example has a circular logo that has become all ‘boxy’ like it’s been oversharpened. It’s still high res, just hasn’t been scaled properly. If a suitable resolution image can’t be sourced, I rather not use it.
- Retailers that have the correct icon - the icon will disappear at some later date. It will be either replaced with a blue avatar, a white square, or something new. I’ve noticed this most with Boots. I wonder if it’s triggered when I make a new purchase from the same retailer but from a different location - it seems to reset all prior Boots icons - within 48 hours the retailer is matched up to Boots again).
- Retailers that don’t get the correct icon at all and get the low resolution blue avatar - a known issue I think. If there is no icon or a blank one I would rather it show the category type icon.
- When I’ve seen retailers with the wrong avatar, its because of their address. I.e. Wasabi I been to before, but its inside a train station - so for about 24-48 hours I will see the National Rail logo (with a christmas hat on).
I’ve noticed that the icons seem to be sourced from twitter, this is resourceful, but it means that some avatars aren’t suitable - I’m seeing a lot of Christmas themed avatars, so I hope they refresh themselves.
