iBubble Status icons

Submitted By Iiro Jäppinen (Iiro)


Okay here goes, my First status icon set!
I made this to accompany the iBubble Dock icon made by me :-P

I have included two color variants, one to match iBubble, and the other with original colors.

Any comments are appreciated :-)


*UPDATE* Updated to 1.3
- Made some changes to colors.
- Added a pen to Typing, Content, and Entered text state
- Dropped the other variant, I think only green should indicate online :-P
(I can put it back but only if I have to)

*UPDATE* Updated to 1.2
- Tweaked the content icon and changed the color to white for easier reading.

*UPDATE* updated to 1.1
- Changed the Mobile icon base color to black, for easier reading

# by dcentity2000 on 09/06/05 at 09:51:44

Love them!

# by Junpei on 09/06/05 at 11:38:23

Oh ya, I like these a lot.

# by Félix on 09/06/05 at 13:30:08

Nice :D

# by hungrydragon on 09/06/05 at 14:46:56

Very nice, simple and clean.

# by biglittledragoon on 09/07/05 at 01:47:49

A dragon approves another of them.

They look like candy. Mmm.

# by Dylan1077 on 09/08/05 at 15:14:46

They are good, though I find b/w would've fitted Apple's UI better.

# by zacw on 09/17/05 at 15:21:08

I think you should differentiate between "typing" and "content" with more than just a ... or ! change. It's pretty difficult to tell when somebody is typing, hit enter, and started typing more.

# by josephyli on 09/23/05 at 08:42:02

I would have to agree with you. It looks really similar.

# by Akurin on 09/29/05 at 16:58:31

i second that motion. otherwise these icons are something more than amazing.

# by Akurin on 10/02/05 at 04:50:27

O no. can u put the mobile back to black please? for me it's blue and when u use just iBubble Status they look similar. otherwise this Xtra rocks! o and sorry for the double-post.

# by Iiro on 10/02/05 at 09:13:04

Oh, sorry. It isn't supposed to be blue, I'll change it now :-)

# by Akurin on 10/02/05 at 12:16:29

yay! ty ty. its perfect now: :D i now rate thee 5 ducks... (slighty deeper voice) out of 5. :P

# by Akurin on 10/04/05 at 10:51:03

lol sorry to complain again but can u change the white icons to a diff color? or have a different variant that has no white in it? cuz i have a white background in my contact list. kthnxbai :)

# by Iiro on 10/06/05 at 07:03:41

Lol, no problem. I'm just running out of different colors.. I wish the status icons could be animated :-P
I'll make a variant when you give me a nice color ;-)

# by Akurin on 10/10/05 at 16:28:15

hmmm, lighter yellow for idle and orange for typing, purple for content, and darker blue with white exclamation point for entered text make the original blue bubble lighter also. and invisible and offline slightly lighter if u want. that's just my take for more colors. is this all ok?

# by lazlofruvous on 10/13/05 at 16:54:55

What's the deal with the "._iBubble Status" stuff in the Status Icons menu in preferences? And how come if I delete those directories, then typing notification stops?

# by on 10/16/05 at 12:03:32

I agree...
liro -- any way to fix this?

# by Iiro on 10/16/05 at 20:07:21

I'm not sure what you are talking about. I don't have any extra stuff in status icon menu. Could you describe it better? :-)

# by on 10/16/05 at 12:01:43

liro, excellent job!

I would suggest perhaps a light brown for the 'unknown' status, or maybe a warm gray? The pink is just a little too alerting for something not so important. Also, why not differentiate between 'invisible' and 'offline'? Lastly, perhaps a blue exclamation point instead of white would be nice for 'entered text'... it's hard to see on my PowerBook.

Muchos gracias, and keep up the good work!

# by Akurin on 10/17/05 at 09:09:18

Oooooh, me like. :D thanx. but can u use blue in the entered text icon, please? that's my only prob now. otherwise it's perfect.

# by Junpei on 10/17/05 at 17:03:33

I like the entered text the way it is now, a dimmer version of the "typing" icon. If it were blue... it just wouldn't work. Both would have to be changed to blue, which I don't think would look as good. But that's me. Personally I think the "Content!" icon could do without the little pencil over it, as at that point the contact is no longer typing.

Every version of this icon set has been better and it's definitely my set of choice. It's also one of the rare *complete* icon sets for Adium, which really matters to me. Good work!

# by Akurin on 10/17/05 at 19:10:53

Actually now that I look at it I see what u mean. and i agree with the "Content!" thing.

# by Conlan on 11/09/05 at 21:06:50

I also agree that the pen doesn't need to be on the Content state. And actually, I'm not really into the pen at all. Is there any place I can download the old sets? But, overall, great job. I love this set.

# by google636 on 12/09/05 at 20:29:14

question: maybe I'm just really slow, but when does the entered text status show up?

# by Iiro on 12/10/05 at 00:41:51

Umm, I'm not sure myself, as I've had it only like a couple of times. But with AIM, when a buddy is typing to you, and stops typing then it will show up.

# by google636 on 12/10/05 at 08:18:38

okay :)

# by Félix on 12/10/05 at 12:10:29

I prefered the old one.

# by barmycarmy on 12/29/05 at 09:02:46

aww shame. I prefered the old typing bubble to the pen :(
I lost all my system when my hard drive died so i had to reinstall.

Any chance you can put the old set up too? I loved the ... bubble :(

# by on 01/12/06 at 14:50:10

Love it! Thanks!!! I didn't see the old one, so I can't compare. But it's much better than what I had! :)

# by Shark!! on 01/19/06 at 08:07:46

new one isnt bad i think...

# by mcsimpson on 01/29/06 at 13:33:48

To be honest, I am still using the version of iBubble where blue is online, yellow/orange is idle, red is away, green is typing, purple is not in your list and white is offline.

It's the colour scheme I like best.

# by twee.doderik on 03/31/06 at 04:09:31

They are great, but I have a problem, that I can use only three icons. Green, white and red. No more. I dont know where the problem is. Can you please help me. If I use chat bubbles, everythings fine. But not these. Im using icq protocol.

# by djmori on 06/27/06 at 10:20:53

You should add a "blocked" bubble!

# by codeman38 on 07/08/06 at 21:39:34

I'd like to see an alternate version with a bar on the 'away' icon and a clock on the 'idle' icon, as in the dock icons. Some people might find that more cluttered, but I find it easier to distinguish the icons that way (and I imagine anyone with red-green colorblindness would find it useful too!).

# by lolamione on 07/27/06 at 10:54:44

These are quite lovely :D Hands down one of the best xtras on here.

# by Pinky_von_Pout on 09/26/06 at 17:19:34

Stunning, thank you :D

# by tymsprecious on 04/20/07 at 10:14:17


# by amberkilloran on 08/30/08 at 21:53:24

I would just like to note that I have noticed a new iBubble status. Not sure what it means exactly :/ I took a quick screen capture of the bubble.

# by KBS117 on 05/20/09 at 18:53:43

great, but I dislike the mobile icon :/
