Making Tab and Menu Icons for Android Apps

When developing mobile apps or drawing graphics for mobile apps, it is essential to conform to certain guidelines. Using graphics made for different operating systems, especially desktop-based, is 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 Description: When designing mobile apps or drawing graphics for Android apps, one must follow certain guidelines. Using graphics made for different operating systems, especially desktop-based, is generally not a good idea. Foreign icons will look weird at best, or will make your Android apps appear hardly recognizable at worst. Body: There exist strict guidelines published for designing standard-compliant Android icons. Different design guidelines are published for tab icons and menu images.

Android Icons for Navigation Bars

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

Android OS and Android apps can run on a variety of different platforms using a wide range of hardware. In connection to icon images, those devices can have different display sizes, display resolutions, pixel dimensions and density. To accommodate the wide range of screens, Android developers should supply all tab icons used in their apps in at least three resolutions to be displayed on low, medium, and high density displays. Resolution-wise, the outer boundaries for the three sizes 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, developers can ensure that their apps will display properly on a variety of devices running the Android OS.

Menu icons are drawn in the "options" menu, and are displayed to the user when they press the Menu button. Similar to tab icons, menu icons are specified as flat, greyscale images. Just as tab icons, developers cannot use 3D or isometric projections.

Screen resolutions for menu icons are defined in a slightly more complex way compared to tab icons. Instead of two resolutions described 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 dimensions 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 ldpi, mdpi and hdpi 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 dots. Similarly, mdpi icons should fit 30x30 and 32x32 pixel boundaries, while high-definition images should fit into 44x44 and 48x48 pixel boxes respectively.

Instead of drawing your own graphics conforming to these guidelines, Android developers have an option of ordering stock graphics from professional designers. As an example, Android Tab Icons by Aha-Soft offer 112 unique tab icons in both states and all standard resolutions. If an additional size is needed, developers can render images at any resolution by opening scalable vector sources.
