    Cool website and great tutorial.
    I’ve just put my first app on the play store – just a little app inventor one to test it out. It worked and I found it in the app store and put it on my phone, but the icon on my phone home screen is a generic one and I can’t see any way to change it – have you had any luck with this?

      Rebecca – good question.

      If you click on the Screen1 page of your app in App Inventor Designer view (that means click on the Screen1 component), check the Properties for Screen1.

      There is an item labeled “Icon”. I have not used that but suspect if you load your icon graphic here it will become associated with the app. You would then need to re-upload your app to the Google Play store – just replace the existing .apk with a new version. Note: if you do that, you are required to update the VersionCode on the Screen1 properties too. No biggie – just set it to 2.

      Let us know if this works for you!
