Version 3.0 of qPDF Notes and Viewer brings a sleek new look, starting with a brand new icon!

All of the new icons have been lovingly hand-crafted and -perfected for each resolution, including a set specifically for the Nexus 7.  We found that the automatically scaled icons (which Google recommends for the TVDPI resolution) just weren't sharp enough on our Nexus 7.  

It deserves better, and so do you!

You can see in this comparison how the scaled icons have a hint of fuzziness around the edges compared to the sharp edges of the designed icons:
