Making Standard Tab and Menu Icons for Android

When designing mobile apps or drawing graphics for Android apps, one must follow srict guidelines. Re-using images designed for other systems, especially desktop-based, is generally not a good idea. Foreign images will look out of place at best, or will make your Android apps hardly recognizable at worst.

Making Tab and Menu Icons for Android Apps Description: When developing mobile apps or designing graphics for mobile apps, one must conform to certain guidelines. Using images made for other operating 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 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 UI. Tab icons should be provided in two distinct states: selected and unselected. It is required that tab icons are drawn as simple, flat shapes as opposed to icons drawn 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 reference to icon graphics, those platforms can have different screen sizes, display resolutions, pixel density and dimensions. To accommodate the variety of displays, Android developers must provide 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 supplying all three standard sizes, developers can ensure that their apps will be shown properly on a variety of devices 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 should not use 3D or isometric projections.

Pixel resolutions for menu icons are described in a slightly more complex way as opposed to to tab icons. Instead of just two sizes defined for tab icons (inner shape and boundary box), the inner shape of menu icons can be smaller or larger 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 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 should be 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 boundaries respectively.

Instead of designing your own icons matching these guidelines, Android developers have an option of getting ready-made icons from professional designers. For example, Android Tab Icons by Aha-Soft offer 112 unique tab icons in selected and unselected states and all standard resolutions. If an additional size is needed, developers can produce icons at any size by opening scalable vector sources.
