    I know I could find the answer with evo matts "let me google that for you" but you phone junkies are so much eaiser... lmoa..(I was talking to a new friend of mine about phones and stuff and he was shocked about all the things you can do with them. He then told me to get a life.)

    What is the file type of a android icon.. not sure if it varies from task bar to screen but if you give me a link I will read it

    Android apps use .png images for graphics. The actual icon of an app is a .png image that is compiled into the app at compile time so there's no need for the end use to fuss with an icon for every app.

    I hope that was helpful.

    Just to elaborate what Adrchoille posted. There's .png and .9.png images. I'm not going to get into the difference now. Besides, I'm still learning myself!

    .9 s are images that are x by x in size but can be resized by scalar multiples. For instance the glow around menus are .9 pngs because they change size to fit any menu. While other pngs stay sized. In my experience you can edit a .9 like any other PNG.
