    Hi all,

    I want to add a custom icon to apk file of my application.

    When I copy the file from the pc to android, and open it with astro, I see the standard "Wheel+sheet" android icon.

    Anyway, when it gets installed, in my phone's menu, I can see the icon i put in res\drawable\icon.png.

    Is there a way to do this?

    If you are talking about putting a png file in res\drawable and putting android:icon="@drawable/icon" in AndroidManifest.xml, yes I did, as I wrote.

    If you aren't referring to that, please explain me 'cause I didn't understood :(

    Thanks,
    SalvoMaltese.

    Follow the step given in
    Icon Design Guidelines, Android 2.0 | Android Developers

    and create icon and replace in drawabe-hdpi , drawabe-mdpi and drawabe-ldpi and refer size in old icon and refresh the project folder and create APK file the icon for APK will be changed.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Astro caches the icons, so once you've updated your APK to have the icons, go clear the Astro cache and you'll see your new icon appear.
