Question: What happened to the icon/font you used to have?
Answer: Due to a DMCA complaint from Apple on March 18, 2015 for the above, my app was suspended on Google Play.  Google originally told me they would not be reinstating my app and to upload it as an entirely new package without the infringing material. April 21, 2015 - An Apple lawyer contacted Google and told them they could reinstate it so long as I made the necessary changes.
