Designing An Icon for Your App

What is an Icon?

The app's icon represents your application in the app stores and appears on the home screen of a mobile device after installation allowing users to visually identify the app:

How do I create an Icon?

You can create an icon in any image editing program, or ask your graphic designer to create one for you. Typically you’ll want to design your icon in a way that makes it easy for users to recognize your application such as a symbol or logo that’s associated with your organization or your event.

What size/dimensions should the icon be?

Upload an image that is at least 1024x1024 in PNG or JPG formats. Attendify will automatically resize your icon to fit different phones and devices.

Should I round the corners of the image file?

Corners get rounded automatically. Please upload an image with straight corners.

Can I add a gloss effect? 

Gloss effects are no longer added to icons on iPhone or Android devices. In the past a gloss effect could be added automatically, now your icon will only contain a gloss effect if you add it into the icon graphics you submit.

Where do I upload my icon?

Icons are uploaded on the Settings tab of the app building process.
