Creating an Eye-Catching Icon
Your App Icon will be the first thing your visitor will see so you want to make sure it catches their eye and matches your branding. To start off we recommend using Canva to create your icon – it's easy to use and you can create an account for free!
Use the following steps to get the perfect dimensions for your app icon:
Step 1: Click 'Create a Design' then choose 'Custom Dimensions' based upon the app store guidelines:
Step 2: Select 'Uploads' from the left menu, then 'Upload an Image'.
Step 3: Drag the desired image to your canvas and resize to fit the template.
Step 4: Click Publish and download your icon as a PNG
You can create your icon design using Canva or use it to get the perfect dimension on an existing design.
A Few Things to Note:
We suggest using high-resolution images without a lot of visual clutter and clearly labeled to indicate product categories. For images try Getty Images or Unsplash. Canva or Godaddy Studio also have excellent image libraries.
Video grabs attention faster than a static image, which makes it a great option. Think about what you want to show your customers. Maybe it's your featured product in action, or a tutorial on how to use your product.

Showcasing amazing photos of your product may not be enough, it's possible that an extra nudge is needed to get a click. That's where a call-to-action (CTA) comes in! Your CTA button could be as simple as 'Buy Now', or 'Try it Out!"
