Add an icon in Android App Inventor

A quick guide outlining how to create an icon for your App Inventor App.

  1. Head over to “http://appinventor.googlelabs.com/”
  2. Log-in if you haven’t already done so.
  3. You may have to select my projects from the top left menu.
  4. Now you should see a list of your projects. For this example select the “Hello Purr” app.
  5. Look to the right hand of the screen and you will see a “Properties” panel.
  6. Click inside the “Icon” box and you will be able to select from pre-loaded images or add a new image.

Good luck!
