Join John Nastos for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating the icon, part of iOS Address Book App: Hands On.
- [Voiceover] Now that we have our basic code…and test written,…let's jump forward and look at some of the steps…that you would take to get your app ready for the App Store.…An important piece of this process is making sure…that you have an App Icon and have integrated it…into your project so that it will appear correctly…in a variety of different sizes,…depending on the device and context…that it will be displayed.…Apple has a page on their developer website…that gives details on what to include or avoid…in your icon, and the sizes that you will need…for your Xcode project.…
Before you go about creating your icon,…make sure to take an in-depth look at these guidelines.…If you look inside the Exercise Files for this course,…you can find a basic icon that I've created…to demonstrate the process of adding it to the project.…I'll open it in Preview.…Although the maximum size that you need currently…for any of Apple's requirements is 1024x1024,…I always make sure to make my icons at 2048x2048.…
In case there are requirements…
Build the project step-by-step and then use what you've learned to explore your own app ideas.
