App Resource Cheat Sheet

April 2, 2015 - Information Resources

A Quick Reference of Application Icon and Splash Screen Sizes and Locations for Google Play and Apple iTunes App Store

With this year’s release of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and the growing, supposed Android Screen Fragmentation, we find ourselves dealing with more resources to support an increasing list of device screen resolutions. Oftentimes, finding an up-to-date list of the application icon and splash screen sizes (and locations, for PhoneGap Cordova) can be an arduous task. In fact, there’s a very good chance that by the time this Information Resource is published, it will already be deprecated.

Regardless, feel free to reference this list as a cheat sheet for Android and iOS icons and splash screen sizes with the caveat that it was created on April 2, 2015, and may already be obsolete.
