I'm working on an app that is a bit limited in functionality and the menu is simply a group of icons on the initial landing page. Although the app interface is limited, it does allow for custom icons.
I am stuck between using monochrome or colored icons. Personally, I feel color icons would be a better choice. The reasons being; it is an event app so the user will only use for a few days, so I believe color will help the user navigate to their intended menu icon more quickly than the monochrome. The majority of people using the app will be men in their 50's and 60's.
Does anyone have any contradicting evidence? Or know of any articles that backup "my opinion?"
