Producing Tab and Menu Icons for Android Apps

When designing Android apps or designing graphics for Android apps, one must follow srict guidelines. Re-using images made for different systems, especially desktop-based, is not a good idea. Foreign graphics will look weird at best, or will render your Android apps hardly recognizable at worst.

Producing Tab and Menu Icons for Android Description: When developing mobile apps or drawing graphics for Android apps, one must follow srict guidelines. Re-using icons 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 appear hardly recognizable at worst. Body: There exist strict guidelines available for designing standard-compliant Android icons. Different design guidelines are published for tab icons and menu icons.

Android Icons for Navigation Bars

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

Android OS and Android apps are used on a multitude of hardware platforms using a wide range of hardware. In reference to icon graphics, those platforms can have different display 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 drawn on low, medium, and high density displays. Resolution-wise, the outer boundaries for the three resolutions are defined as 24x24, 32x32, and 48x48 pixels. Inner dimensions should not exceed 22x22, 28x28, and 42x42 pixels respectively. By providing all three standard sizes, developers can ensure that their apps will display properly on a wide range of platforms running the Android OS.

Menu icons are drawn 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, grayscale images. Like tab icons, developers should not use 3D or isometric projections.

Pixel sizes for menu icons are described in a slightly more comprehensive 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 bigger depending on their shape. If a menu icon is square-shaped, its size should be smaller than for icons shaped otherwise. The reason for specifying two different size limits is to establish a consistent visual size 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 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 drawing your own images matching these guidelines, Android developers have an option of getting ready-made graphics from professional designers. As an example, Android Tab Icons by Aha-Soft include 112 unique tab graphics in both states and all standard sizes. Should additional resolutions be required, developers can produce icons at any size by accessing scalable vector sources.
