How to customize the main icons of your app
Hello and welcome to your new GoodBarber tutorial
Today we’re going to learn how to customize the app icons
This is a mandatory step to generate your app
The icon is a key visual element of your app. It will be used as favicon by the web browsers, displayed in the push notifications to identify the sender, on the home screen of your users device.
To set up the icons, lets go to the menu My app > Design > general design
Open the icon menu
You can use the assistant or create a completely custom icon
We’ll start with the assistant
Here you can add text or a logo
For example, I want to display the initials of my spa Freyja. All I need to do is enter them in the text box
If I prefer a logo, I simply need to click on the tab like this and upload an image in the required dimensions
Let’s stick to the text
On the right side menu, I can set the font, text color and effects
Then I create the background of my icon: a color or an image from the unSplash library of the back office or from my computer.
That's wht i;m going to do
And voila my icon is ready!
All I need now is to edit the title of my app, that will be displayed on the home screen of your clients devices
Click on generate and confirm the modifications
The icona are automatically generated in the required format for all possible uses.
That was easy no?
Now let’s try the custom option
Now, that couldn't be any easier. Simply upload tour already created icon (in the required sizes)
And it’s done!
You now know how to customize your app icon
See you very soon for another tutorial!
