I am designing an App for Android PlayStore and have a launcher icon related question. I know there used to be a set rounded corner radius of 5% for all launcher icons, but I see many free form App/ Launcher icons on the PlayStore these days. Does anyone know if this is a strict design regulation anymore? Or will Google still feature (Editors Choice) your App with a free form App launcher icon?
From Android launcher icon design guidelines:
Use a distinct silhouette. Three-dimensional, front view, with a slight perspective as if viewed from above, so that users perceive some depth.
