34 Incredible Brand New iPhone and iPad App Icons

We have written about previous iOS app icon designs in previous galleries. There are so many talented artists entering the field of icon design, and inspiration is found in abundance. That is why I have put together another fascinating collection of Dribbble shots featuring iPhone & iPad app icons.

The Apple iOS app store is a powerful and heavily trafficked marketplace for developers. You can build almost any idea fit to a mobile smartphone or tablet device. And coupled with a working user interface you can build a sensation. It is my hope this small gallery of mobile app icons can spur creativity for new ideas.

Designing a Custom iPhone App Navigation Bar

App development for iPhone and iPod Touch has become a booming industry. Designers from all over the world are jumping at the chance to have their ideas published into the App Store. It’s no surprise more tech enthusiasts are moving onto Apple devices.

It can be tough to build an entire app from scratch and Xcode menus don’t make things easier. In this tutorial I’m hoping to introduce some bare-bones essential ideas for customizing an application’s top navigation bar. There is a bit of Objective-C code required but it shouldn’t be too overwhelming. It’s also worth noting that you will need a computer running Mac OS X in order to install Xcode and compile these apps in the first place.
