Custom app icons on Android


(Richard Cook) #1

You can now pick a custom app icon on Android, just like on iOS!


#2

What colours are right for beta: iOS or Android and will they ever match?


#3

Android is always the right one :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#4

This has been active for about a week…?


#5

Only if you were on Beta. I assume this update is after the latest update for non-beta users.


#6

:thinking: :joy:


#7

Just to show the visual difference as @HoddzDJ pointed out;

It has been confirmed that Android is the right way around :wink:

I’m a beta tester but I don’t seem to get the Beta icon…


#10

I believe Beta is for those who were part of the Monzo Beta (pre-current account) rather than for the App Beta testers (which is more of a Google thing, anyway).


(Stephen) #11

Ah! That’ll be why then.

Anyone notice the snowfall in the app this afternoon?


(Martin Jones) #13

Been snowing for a few days if you shake phone


(If there's the wrong end of a stick, you'll find me holding it.) #14

It’s been raining here (Wales) whether I shake the phone or not, sadly.


(David Walton) #15

The snow falls here after quite a vigorous (Android) shake. Works for both Personal and Joint Accounts too. Nice.


(Martin Jones) #16

Must not been shaking hard enough :joy:


#17

Is there anywhere to download the alt logo icons as pngs / svg?

Can the press kit please be updated @cookywook inc the weird iOS beta green?


(Oliver Dunk) #18

I’d love to know what’s happened behind the scenes to make this possible. It almost seems like the app reinstalls itself, but I can’t see that being the case.


#19

It think it works the same way as custom app icons work in launchers or icon packs. You always have the choice to customise your app icons.

If i had an icon pack installed, I could have extra choices:

I think it’s done with multiple launcher entries in the manifest :slight_smile:
