Specify an icon and label in the applications manifest

The icon and label that you specify in an application's manifest are important because they are displayed to users as your application's icon and name. They are displayed on the device's Home screen, as well as in Manage Applications, My Downloads, and elsewhere. Additionally, publishing services may display the icon and label to users.

To specify an icon and label, you define the attributes android:icon and android:label in the <application> element of the manifest.

As regards the design of your icon, you should try to make it match as much as possible the style used by the built-in Android applications.
