Browsing around trying to figure out which launcher icon sizes to create, can make any JavaME developer go insane and lock himself up in a dark room.....
But there MUST be ways to make our lives easier?
This is my idea:
Nokia will tell us which icon sizes we should focus on. Then we will create those sizes and include them in the jar. This means, the jar file will have many png files, each one with the logo in different sizes. The names would be e.g.
- and so forth.
We would publish our midlet on the Nokia Store, and be done with it.
Nokia's webserver will then - when the users download apps from their Store - dynamically adjust the JAD file (and MANIFEST if necessary?) to use the proper icon that should be used for that particular phone.
I bet it wouldn't require a ton of work for Nokia, and it sure would make life easier for the developers.
I'm not sure if it would be enough to change the JAD, or if the MANIFEST would also have to be changed. Anyone knows?
But that's my idea. What do you think? Do you have any ideas?
