Producing Standard Tab and Menu Icons for Android Apps

When designing mobile apps or designing graphics for mobile apps, it is essential to follow srict guidelines. Using graphics made for other systems, especially desktop-based, is not a good idea. Foreign icons will look out of place at best, or will render your Android apps appear hardly recognizable at worst.

Making Tab and Menu Icons for Android Description: When developing Android apps or designing graphics for mobile apps, one must follow certain guidelines. Re-using graphics 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 appear hardly recognizable at worst. Body: There exist strict guidelines available in reference to Android icons. Different design guidelines are available for tab icons and menu graphics.

Android Icons for Navigation Tab Bars

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

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

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

Pixel resolutions for menu icons are described in a slightly more comprehensive way as opposed to to tab icons. Instead of two resolutions described for tab icons (inner shape and boundary box), the inner shape of menu icons can be smaller or larger depending on their shape. If a menu icon is square-shaped, its dimensions should be smaller than for icons with different shapes. The reason for having two different sizes is to establish a consistent visual weight across the two icon types.

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

Instead of drawing your own images conforming to these guidelines, Android developers have an option of getting ready-made images from professional designers. For example, Android Tab Icons by Aha-Soft offer 112 unique tab graphics in both states and all standard resolutions. If an additional size is needed, developers can produce graphics at any size by accessing scalable vector sources.
