I recorded this short screencast showing how to use Windows Phone Icons Maker to quickly create application icons for Windows Phone apps. You can get Windows Phone Icons Maker at http://wpiconmaker.codeplex.com. Enjoy! (If the colors are weird for you, I’m really sorry! I tried uploading it several times to take care of it, but it might not have worked.)
The other day I was looking for some Windows Phone 7 icons. It took a lot of searching, but I was able to find some really nice icons that some great designers have put out there. This is a list of those fun resources I found! Remember to give credit where credit is due.
- App Bar Icons for Windows Phone 7 2011.1
6 demo icons, 48 x 48 pixels
- Windows Phone 7 icons
~340 icons, 256 x 256 pixels
- Windows Phone 7 icons, Metro Station
84 icons, 128 x 128 pixels
- Windows Phone 7 icons, Metro Station 2nd Edition
209 icons (in three colors), 256 x 256 pixels
For what I was doing, I found Metro Station and Metro Station 2nd Edition really helpful. You may also want to check out this list from MicrosoftFeed of 25+ Beautiful Minimalist Icon Sets for your Windows Phone 7 App. I haven’t checked out these icons, so I can’t speak to how useful they are.
If you’ve found any other icon resources that have been helpful for you, let me know in the comments!
