BB10 Icon guideline

Hello there, I've been told that BB10 apps required an icon of different size, the reference I got is inside this link, https://developer.blackberry.com/air/documentation/bb10/create_icon_button.html which require us to create an icon image.

 

However, in developing for the Playbook it's as simple as this following code which is available inside the .bar descriptor.

 <!--  The icon for the application which should be 86x86 -->
   <!-- <icon>
      <image>hello.png</image>
   </icon> -->

 How exactly should I make icon for BB10? Can I use the method similar to creating one for Playbook? And what is the size of it?

And I submitted my playbook apps with the BB10's resolution to the app world, but with the same 86x86 icon, will it still be accepted?

yes it will be accepted (if everything else was ok), but the icon will look too small. as of BB10, the icons should have 150x150.

 

actually, it would be better if you could provide two icons, one for bb10, one for playbook, since the bb10 icons look squared while on playbook, many icons have transparent corners/free sizes. MSohm, any possibility to set that in the bar descriptor-file?

 

btw, your link refers to an iconbutton. that's not the app icon, it's just an in-app button with an icon :smileyhappy:
