Producing Standard Tab and Menu Icons for Android Apps

When designing mobile apps or designing graphics for Android apps, it is essential to conform to certain guidelines. Re-using images made for other operating systems, especially desktop-based, is not a good idea. Foreign images will look weird at best, or will render your Android apps hardly recognizable at worst.

Producing Standard Tab and Menu Icons for Android Description: When developing Android apps or designing graphics for mobile apps, it is essential to follow certain guidelines. Re-using icons designed for other systems, especially desktop-based, is generally not a good idea. Foreign graphics will look weird at best, or will make your Android apps hardly recognizable at worst. Body: There are precise guidelines available for designing standard-compliant Android icons. Different design guidelines are available for tab icons and menu graphics.

Android Icons for Navigation Toolbars

Tab icons represent individual tabs in tabbed interface. Tab icons must be supplied in two distinct states: selected and unselected. It is recommended that tab icons are drawn as simple, flat shapes as opposed to images drawn in 3D or isometric projection.

Android OS and Android apps are used on a multitude of hardware platforms using a wide range of hardware. In connection to icon graphics, those devices can have different display sizes, screen resolutions, pixel density and dimensions. To accommodate the variety of displays, Android developers should supply all tab icons used in their apps in at least three resolutions to be displayed on low, medium, and high density screens. Resolution-wise, the outer boundaries for the three resolutions are defined as 24x24, 32x32, and 48x48 pixels. The size of the shape itself should not exceed 22x22, 28x28, and 42x42 pixels respectively. By including all three standard resolutions, designers can ensure that their apps will display properly on a variety of devices running the Android OS.

Menu icons are displayed in the "options" menu, and are displayed to users when they press the Menu button. Similar to tab icons, menu icons are specified as flat, grayscale images. Just as tab icons, developers cannot use 3D or isometric projections.

Screen sizes for menu icons are defined in a slightly more comprehensive way compared to tab icons. Instead of just two sizes described for tab icons (inner shape and boundary box), the inner shape of menu icons can be smaller or bigger depending on their shape. If a menu icon is square-shaped, its resolution should be smaller than for icons with different shapes. The reason for specifying two different sizes is to establish a consistent visual size across the two icon types.

The outer dimensions for low, medium, and high resolution icons are described as 36x36, 48x48, and 72x72 pixels respectively. Inner shapes for square, low-definition icons should be 22x22 pixels, while non-square icons should fit into a boundary box sized 24x24 dots. Similarly, medium-definition icons should fit 30x30 and 32x32 pixel boxes, while high-definition images should fit into 44x44 and 48x48 pixel boxes respectively.

Instead of drawing your own icons matching these guidelines, Android developers have an option of getting stock images from professional designers. For example, Android Tab Icons by Aha-Soft offer 112 unique tab images in selected and unselected states and all three standard resolutions. Should additional resolutions be required, developers can produce images at any size by accessing scalable vector sources.
