Making Tab and Menu Icons for Android Apps

When developing mobile apps or designing graphics for Android apps, one must follow srict guidelines. Using graphics made for other operating systems, especially desktop-based, is generally not a good idea. Foreign graphics will look weird at best, or will render your Android apps hardly recognizable at worst.

Producing Standard Tab and Menu Icons for Android Apps Description: When designing Android apps or drawing graphics for mobile apps, it is essential to follow srict guidelines. Using icons designed for other operating systems, especially desktop-based, is generally not a good idea. Foreign icons will look out of place at best, or will render 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 Bars

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

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

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

Pixel sizes for menu icons are defined in a slightly more complex way as opposed to to tab icons. Instead of just two resolutions defined for tab graphics (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 having two different size limits is to establish a consistent visual size 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 boundaries, while high-definition images should fit into 44x44 and 48x48 pixel rectangles respectively.

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