Making Standard Tab and Menu Icons for Android Apps

When designing Android apps or drawing graphics for mobile apps, it is essential to follow certain guidelines. Re-using icons made for different operating systems, especially desktop-based, is generally not a good idea. Foreign icons will look weird at best, or will render your Android apps hardly recognizable at worst.

Producing Standard Tab and Menu Icons for Android Description: When designing mobile apps or designing graphics for Android apps, it is essential to follow srict guidelines. Using images made for other systems, especially desktop-based, is not a good idea. Foreign graphics will look out of place at best, or will render your Android apps appear hardly recognizable at worst. Body: There exist precise guidelines published in reference to Android icons. Different design guidelines are published for tab icons and menu icons.

Android Icons for Navigation Tab Bars

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

Android OS and Android apps are used on a wide range of hardware platforms using a wide range of hardware. In connection to icon images, those platforms can have different display sizes, screen resolutions, pixel dimensions and density. To accommodate the wide range of displays, Android developers should provide all tab icons used in their apps in at least three resolutions to be displayed on low, medium, and high density displays. Pixel-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, developers can ensure that their apps will display properly on a variety of devices running the Android OS.

Menu icons are drawn 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, greyscale images. Just as tab icons, developers should not 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 two resolutions described for tab graphics (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 size 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 low, medium, and high resolution icons are described 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 dots. Similarly, medium-definition icons should fit 30x30 and 32x32 pixel boxes, while high-definition images should fit into 44x44 and 48x48 pixel rectangles respectively.

Instead of drawing your own graphics matching these guidelines, Android developers have an option of ordering stock graphics from professional designers. For example, Android Tab Icons by Aha-Soft include 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.
