Making Standard Tab and Menu Icons for Android Apps

When designing mobile apps or designing graphics for mobile apps, it is essential to follow certain guidelines. Re-using graphics made for different 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 developing Android apps or drawing graphics for Android apps, it is essential to conform to certain guidelines. Using images made for different systems, especially desktop-based, is not a good idea. Foreign images 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 published for tab icons and menu graphics.

Android Icons for Navigation Tab Bars

Tab icons represent individual tabs in tabbed UI. Tab icons should be provided in two different states: selected and unselected. It is required that tab icons are drawn 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 hardware platforms employing a wide range of hardware. In connection to icon images, those platforms can have different display sizes, screen resolutions, pixel density and dimensions. To accommodate the variety of screens, Android developers must provide all tab icons used in their apps in at least three resolutions to be shown on low, medium, and high density screens. Pixel-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 supplying all three standard sizes, designers can ensure that their apps will be shown properly on a variety of platforms running the Android OS.

Menu icons are displayed 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. Like tab icons, developers cannot use 3D or isometric projections.

Pixel resolutions for menu icons are described in a slightly more comprehensive way compared to tab icons. Instead of 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 weight 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 designing your own graphics conforming to these guidelines, Android developers have an option of ordering ready-made images from professional designers. For example, Android Tab Icons by Aha-Soft offer 112 unique tab graphics in both states and all three standard resolutions. If an additional size is needed, developers can render graphics at any size by accessing scalable vector sources.
