Help me choose which icon to use for my app!

Dear fellow developers,

If you have two seconds to spare I'd be really grateful if you could rate the following candidate icons for my app (please put your rating(s) on the actual poll rather than responding in this thread).

Link to the poll: http://99designs.co.uk/icon-button-design/vote-eslgqg

The app is a French "audio vocab quiz" app. More info here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/french-audio-quiz/id903732044?mt=8

Many thanks for people's help!

I like #94, it seems very balanced and clean.

Yup, this is the one I'd consider. Maybe even remove that inner drop shadow to keep it flat.

Personally I'd develop a few more, here's a few pointers:
  • Drop shadows over complicate the icon, keep it simple.
  • 90 & 89 tell me it's a playfull app where as 94 feels more serious. Ask yourself what you want people to think. Harsh edges says serious, rounded says fun
  • If using multiple elements, try and use contrasting colours so each element stands out. Currently 94 merges slightly too much, and at a small scale it makes my eyes go a little weird.

Personally I like 94 but could do with some simplifying

I think #62 is clearly the best. It's clean, it's stylish and it looks professional. And it will probably look good even on tiny screens with tiny resolution.

I think #89 and #90 are pretty good too, but the flag is wrong. Blue and red are mixed up!

i think 94 is good if you can balance out the shadow and may be adjust the blue color a little bit as it seems to blending into the blue in the flag. Also the shadow.

but overall i think this is the best as the other are more like playful kind of apps.

I like #89. I can see how it matches the function of the app.
