Designing Tab and Menu Icons for Android

When developing mobile apps or designing graphics for Android apps, it is essential to follow srict guidelines. Re-using icons made for different 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 hardly recognizable at worst.

Making Standard Tab and Menu Icons for Android Apps Description: When designing mobile apps or drawing graphics for mobile apps, it is essential to follow certain guidelines. Using images made for different operating systems, especially desktop-based, is not a good idea. Foreign icons will look weird 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 interface. Tab icons must be supplied in two distinct states: selected and unselected. It is required that tab icons are designed as simple, flat shapes as opposed to graphics drawn in 3D or isometric projection.

Android OS and Android apps are used on a variety of hardware platforms employing a wide range of hardware. In connection to icon graphics, those devices can have different display sizes, display resolutions, pixel dimensions and density. To accommodate the wide range of displays, Android developers must supply all tab icons used in their apps in at least three resolutions to be shown on low, medium, and high density screens. Pixel-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 including all three standard sizes, designers can ensure that their apps will display properly on a variety of platforms running the Android OS.

Menu icons are displayed 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.

Screen sizes for menu icons are described in a slightly more comprehensive way compared to tab icons. Instead of just two resolutions defined for tab icons (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 resolution should be smaller than for icons with different shapes. 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 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 rectangles respectively.

Instead of designing your own graphics matching these guidelines, Android developers have an option of ordering ready-made images from professional designers. For example, Android Tab Icons by Aha-Soft include 112 unique tab icons in selected and unselected states and all standard resolutions. If an additional size is needed, developers can produce images at any size by opening scalable vector sources.
