Producing Tab and Menu Icons for Android Apps

When developing mobile apps or drawing graphics for Android apps, it is essential to follow certain guidelines. Using graphics made for different systems, especially desktop-based, is generally not a good idea. Foreign icons will look out of place at best, or will render your Android apps appear hardly recognizable at worst.

Producing Tab and Menu Icons for Android Description: When developing mobile apps or designing graphics for Android apps, it is essential to follow certain guidelines. Using images designed for other systems, especially desktop-based, is not a good idea. Foreign graphics will look weird at best, or will make your Android apps hardly recognizable at worst. Body: There are strict guidelines published for designing standard-compliant Android icons. Different design guidelines are available for tab icons and menu images.

Android Icons for Navigation Bars

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

Android OS and Android apps are used on a variety of hardware platforms using a wide range of hardware. In connection to icon images, those devices can have different display sizes, display resolutions, pixel density and dimensions. To accommodate the wide range of screens, Android developers should provide all tab icons used in their apps in at least three resolutions to be drawn on low, medium, and high density displays. 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 providing all three standard resolutions, designers can ensure that their apps will be shown properly on a variety of devices 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 should be flat, grayscale images. Like tab icons, developers should not use 3D or isometric projections.

Pixel sizes for menu icons are defined in a slightly more comprehensive way compared to tab icons. Instead of two sizes 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 shaped otherwise. 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 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 pixels. Similarly, mdpi 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 images matching these guidelines, Android developers have an option of getting stock icons from professional designers. As an example, Android Tab Icons by Aha-Soft include 112 unique tab graphics in both states and all three standard sizes. If an additional size is needed, developers can render images at any resolution by accessing scalable vector sources.
