IMDb, you shrunk the app icon?

It seems to me that the app icon for version 7.2.1.107210100 on tablet Android (5.1.1, if that matters) is smaller than before. See photo below; previously the IMDb icon had about the same dimensions as the FX icon above it. On my phone (Android 6.0.1, if that matters) the app is still at 7.2.0.107200300 and the icon still appears at the old dimensions.

Is that intentional?
I re-installed the app just to test, but that made no difference.

Not really a problem, it just looks a bit strange. As if IMDb considers its app insignificant to others, when on my tablet it's the most frequently used one. :)

Quick follow-up - can you reply back with what kind of tablet this is?  We've tried to reproduce on a few so far and weren't able to.  Thanks!

I reinstalled the app, but on my tablet it returns the shrunken icon. Sorry, but keep on trying, Wayne Szalinski. :)

Oh no!  We are not able to reproduce it on our end in the latest release.  Did you upgrade, or do a completely fresh install?  It's possible the device has cached the older icon, so you might need to delete and reinstall.  You could also try removing the app shortcut from your device home screen and then dragging a new one over.

I reinstalled as noted, it was already the latest version 7.2.3 so no update possible.

As a further test, I cleared the app's cache and data, then uninstalled and installed again. But the icon remains smallish, as in the initial photo. :( That's off the all-apps overview, but it's the same shrunken size after copying it back to the home screen.

Meanwhile on my phone the app updated to 7.2.3 too, but kept its normal largish icon size.

Thanks for keeping me posted.

Same in the new version 7.3.0.
