App icon generators are really helpful. They work like some kind of magic. Import an image, let the software scale it to the sizes you need & export the correct file formats. Job Done! But this magic is capricious one. The results you’ll get critically depend on the artwork you upload and a little bit of luck too.

Android Studio has the built in Image Asset utility for generating a new launcher icon. A launcher icon is put on to an Android device when your App is installed. A good icon helps identify your App. It provides the chance to make a first good impression. The Image Asset utility generates several icon sizes to support the wide range of screen densities that exist in the Android world.

Here are some simple examples you could imagine: parallax or pulsing by independently translating or scaling each layer before applying the mask.

An app icon and splash screen (launch image) are important parts of any app, yet making them used to be incredibly tedious. You needed numerous icons for iOS and Android, and then you had to deal with splash screens and all their different sizes.

Mobile platforms are much more heterogeneous than the classic desktop browsers. Screen sizes and resolutions vary hugely and there is no predominant OS like Windows was when the Internet started to spread. Consequence: do not expect to design a mobile favicon with a single, universal graphic and single, universal declaration in the HTML code.

If you prefer to create your own palette, it’s best to just define the most basic colors. That is, focus mostly on defining a set of hues you’ll be using. Later on, you can tweak the value or saturation to create highlights or shadows of that particular color. Having a complex palette with many variations will make it complex and hard to navigate.
