Looking at the Android design guide, it seems support for open formats is rather light. I guess it’s understandable since the site is aimed at designers.

I need to start using the standard ICS icons in SuprCards, but in a different colour (and also to backport to earlier Androids). So I had to spend a bit of time converting the AI file to SVG in inkscape – as I don’t have a copy of Illustrator. I had to pull the file apart to see everything, as Inkscape doesn’t have the same layer support as AI. Then group and label the icons, so its easier to find what I am looking for …

It’s definitley not perfect though unfortunatley. There were a few bits left over, which obviously belong with other icons, but all the basic icons are there and the others wont be hard to assemble when you know what you need.

The SVG file is attached below for download. If you have any suggestions/corrections/refinements then please get in contact, or leave a comment below. You can just drag the relevant icon into the centre and export to PNG easily, though you still have to be careful to centre them properly …

All ICS Icons

I spread out the icons and grouped them - so hopefully its easy to find what you are looking for ...

Here is the file – NOTE: The SVG appears blank in the browser – You can move the icons into the view area to render them:
SVG file.

I need to change the colour of the icons to fit with my white text on dark theme. Possibly it will be best to use the Vectoroid SVG Parser to render them in real time – but it will likely be a bit heavy with the parsing overhead, the rendering and bitmap creation should be fine though. So a script to make the sets of icons at different densities would be a good idea … stay tuned.
