Making Tab and Menu Icons for Android

When developing Android apps or drawing graphics for Android apps, it is essential to follow certain guidelines. Re-using images designed for other operating 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.

Designing Tab and Menu Icons for Android Apps Description: When developing Android apps or designing graphics for mobile apps, it is essential to follow srict guidelines. Re-using icons made for other systems, especially desktop-based, is generally not a good idea. Foreign icons will look out of place at best, or will make your Android apps appear hardly recognizable at worst. Body: There are strict guidelines available for designing standard-compliant Android icons. Different design guidelines are available for tab icons and menu images.

Android Icons for Navigation Bars

Tab icons represent individual tabs in tabbed interface. 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 icons drawn in 3D or isometric projection.

Android OS and Android apps are used on a multitude of different platforms employing a wide range of hardware. In reference to icon graphics, those platforms can have different display sizes, display resolutions, pixel dimensions and density. 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, developers can ensure that their apps will display properly on a wide range of devices running the Android OS.

Menu icons are drawn in the "options" menu, and are displayed 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.

Screen resolutions for menu icons are defined in a slightly more comprehensive way as opposed to to tab icons. Instead of just 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 with different shapes. The reason for having two different size limits is to establish a consistent visual size 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 should be 22x22 pixels, while non-square icons should fit into a boundary box sized 24x24 dots. 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 drawing your own icons conforming to these guidelines, Android developers have an option of getting stock icons from professional designers. As an example, Android Tab Icons by Aha-Soft offer 112 unique tab images in selected and unselected states and all three standard sizes. If an additional size is needed, developers can render icons at any resolution by opening scalable vector sources.
