Making Tab and Menu Icons for Android

When developing mobile apps or designing graphics for mobile apps, one must follow certain guidelines. Re-using icons made for other systems, especially desktop-based, is generally not a good idea. Foreign graphics will look out of place 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 designing graphics for mobile apps, one must follow srict guidelines. Using icons 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. Body: There are strict guidelines available for designing standard-compliant Android icons. Different design guidelines are published for tab icons and menu graphics.

Android Icons for Navigation Toolbars

Tab icons are drawn in individual tabs in tabbed UI. Tab icons must be supplied in two distinct states: unselected and selected. 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 variety of different platforms employing a wide range of hardware. In reference to icon images, those devices can have different display sizes, screen resolutions, pixel dimensions and density. To accommodate the wide range of screens, Android developers must provide 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. The size of the shape itself should not exceed 22x22, 28x28, and 42x42 pixels respectively. By supplying all three standard resolutions, developers can ensure that their apps will be shown properly on a variety of platforms running the Android OS.

Menu icons are used in the "options" menu, and are shown to the user when they press the Menu button. Similar to tab icons, menu icons should be 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 compared to tab icons. Instead of just two resolutions described for tab graphics (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 dimensions should be smaller than for icons with different shapes. The reason for having two different sizes 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 pixels. 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 designing your own images conforming to these guidelines, Android developers have an option of getting stock images 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 render graphics at any size by accessing scalable vector sources.
