Glu Mobile used a global store listing experiment in the Google Play Developer Console to test three different background colors in the game’s icon.

Results

The results showed that of three different color schemes — blue, light blue, and light red — an icon with a light blue background converted 2.9 percent more visitors than the original control icon.
