Open the 'Sdk Locations' section of the MonoDevelop preferences. There are icons for both the Android and Apple (iPhone/MonoMac) sub-sections. Currently we use an image of an iphone, but an image of the Apple logo may be better.

David, can you provide an icon?
Also, maybe the SDK location node could be promoted to a top level node.

SDK Icons

How are these?

They look nice to me!
Comment 4 Alan McGovern 2012-09-10 13:40:24 UTC
Actually we only need three icons:
1) The toplevel 'toolbox' representing the Sdk Locations section
2) The Android section
3) The combined MonoMac/iPhone section.

As such, maybe an apple logo for the 'Apple' section would be best.  Alternatively we could split out MonoMac and Mono for iPhone as separate sections, but I don't think this makes sense to build MonoTouch applications you require both the mac sdk (essentially Xcode.app) and also MonoTouch (/Developer/MonoTouch).
