You can also buy icons from various websites.

or make your own using Adobe Illustrator (or alike)

BTW I'm talking about the App icon, which displays in the main screen of the phone, but the link provided is useful though, thanks in advance.

Re: Icon for bb10

We've got a good blog post on in-app icons :smileyhappy:

For actually application icons, I don't know of any resources really. This is usually something the developer/designer comes up with on their own since it's unique to the application.

Re: Icon for bb10

I would also suggest doing it at 480px * 480px at least and scaling down, or better yet, do it in a vector format using illustrator or Inkscape. That way you can use it elsewhere without running into scaling problems. BB World requires a 480px square image for your app icon, but recently we asked devs for vector based images for a BFB thing at JAM Asia. I had to redo my icon for that because my current one was only ever 114px square and a regular png.
