The icon of several of my apps in development have disappeared. I can only find the apps in "Manage Applications". The one I'm working on for Firefly has an icon within Firefly but does not have an app icon anywhere. I can only launch these app from Android Studio. The app I have on the Appstore has an icon but if I install the development version, the icon disappears as well. An uninstall, reinstall, reboot, doesn't help. Any thoughts on what's happening?
This continues to be an issue for me. Any ideas? Several app in development have no icon any where on the Fire Phone. They are only launchable from the Eclipse or Android Studio. The first time they were installed on the phone, the icon appeared but they have since disappeared. It's making it challenging to test. Any ideas on how to resolve this?
Sujoy and Kevin, is there a particular reason most of my questions go unanswered? It would seem most of my questions have been pretty basic. And things like an app icon not displaying is a deal breaker. Meaning how in the world would someone launch an app without an icon? Seems like this question in particular needs an answer. I'm happy to provide more info, if you can tell what will help track this down. logs, screenshots, part of my project, etc...
Hi Scott / Josh, The FirePhone (or any of the Fire tablets) behave exactly the same way as any other Android based device in this respect. The app icon is pulled from your assets while you are developing your app. The difference for Fire devices is that AFTER your app is published the app icon, carousel, etc. are all pulled from the assets you upload into your Developer Portal. That is why you are seeing the app icon form the app you download form the Appstore. You have indicated you are using Android Studio. Have you gone through the Create Asset Set dialog without any issues? Have you set your path correctly to your new image(s)? Doing this will then copy them over to your ic-launcher.png’s in your /res folder for you. You will want to use the CAS dialog, not just copy/paste as you might do with Eclipse. If you still have issues you might experiment with this on another Android device and see if you get similar results. Let us know if you continue to have issues. -Kevin
