Thank you for the beta. All has gone smoothly on my Mac with Yosemite 10.10.4 beta and I am thinking I will enjoy the upgrade in storage from Copy. However, speaking of Copy, can we not have something elegant like the Copy origami bird for a Mac menu bar icon?

 

love that icon. And, well, I dislike intensely the CudaDrive Beta icon. Especially with dark mode on for Yosemite, it is too big, too bright, and (sorry, Barracuda designer) ugly.

 

What do you think? I'd love something like the Copy icon. Can it be done?

Yes, another icon would be nice, but I do not agree with the Copy icon. Origami is cool, but this is a new product and deserves its own icon. 
 
This is currently what I see on Windows 7:

With the orange/blue theme in mind, I made this:

Something like that would be nice.

You're showing the Windows Explorer (or Finder, for Mac users) icon. We're talking about the Start Menu/System Tray (or Menubar, for Mac users) icon.

 

And I agree, the Copy icon is is memorable, easily identifiable in a menubar full of icons, and unique. The CudaDrive icon looks like a thrown-together, un-inspiring, giant square that means nothing to anyone using it.

Obviously it's in beta, so it doesn't matter right now. But once released to the public, the icon alone is going to turn people off to the service.
