Designing Tab and Menu Icons for Android Apps

When designing Android apps or designing graphics for mobile apps, one must conform to srict guidelines. Using graphics designed 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.

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

Android Icons for Navigation Toolbars

Tab icons represent individual tabs in tabbed interface. Tab icons should be provided in two different states: unselected and selected. It is recommended that tab icons are designed as simple, flat shapes as opposed to icons drawn in 3D or isometric projection.

Android OS and Android apps are used on a variety of different platforms using a wide range of hardware. In reference to icon images, those platforms can have different screen sizes, screen resolutions, pixel dimensions and density. To accommodate the variety of screens, Android developers should supply all tab icons used in their apps in at least three resolutions to be shown on low, medium, and high density displays. Pixel-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 including all three standard sizes, designers 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, grayscale images. Like tab icons, developers should not use 3D or isometric projections.

Pixel sizes for menu icons are described in a slightly more complex way compared to tab icons. Instead of just two sizes described for tab icons (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 dimensions should be smaller than for icons shaped otherwise. The reason for having two different size limits 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 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 designing your own graphics matching these guidelines, Android developers have an option of obtaining ready-made images from professional designers. As an example, Android Tab Icons by Aha-Soft offer 112 unique tab graphics in selected and unselected states and all standard sizes. Should additional resolutions be required, developers can produce images at any resolution by accessing scalable vector sources.
