Designing Tab and Menu Icons for Android

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

Producing Standard Tab and Menu Icons for Android Apps Description: When designing mobile apps or drawing graphics for Android apps, one must follow srict guidelines. Re-using images made for other operating systems, especially desktop-based, is generally not a good idea. Foreign images will look weird at best, or will render your Android apps hardly recognizable at worst. Body: There are precise 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 are drawn in individual tabs in tabbed UI. Tab icons should 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 variety of hardware platforms employing a wide range of hardware. In connection to icon graphics, those devices can have different screen sizes, screen resolutions, pixel density and dimensions. To accommodate the wide range of screens, 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 sizes are defined as 24x24, 32x32, and 48x48 pixels. Inner dimensions should not exceed 22x22, 28x28, and 42x42 pixels respectively. By including all three standard sizes, designers can ensure that their apps will display 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 are specified as flat, greyscale images. Just as tab icons, developers cannot use 3D or isometric projections.

Screen resolutions for menu icons are described in a slightly more complex way compared to tab icons. Instead of two sizes described for tab icons (inner shape and boundary box), the inner shape of menu icons can be smaller or bigger depending on whether they are square-shaped or not. If a menu icon is square-shaped, its resolution should be smaller than for icons with different shapes. The reason for specifying 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 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, mdpi icons should fit 30x30 and 32x32 pixel boundaries, while high-definition images should fit into 44x44 and 48x48 pixel boxes respectively.

Instead of drawing your own icons conforming to these guidelines, Android developers have an option of ordering stock icons from professional designers. As an example, Android Tab Icons by Aha-Soft offer 112 unique tab graphics in both states and all standard resolutions. Should additional resolutions be required, developers can produce icons at any resolution by opening scalable vector sources.
