Android Build a Simple Android App (2014) Improving Our Code Adding an App Icon

App Icon unchanged.

I'm running a newer version of the IDE than the instructor. Like a similar question on this forum, I do not have the drawable files in my directory. Instead I have directories beginning with mipmap-. When putting the pngs here, the app icon is unchanged.

I had this issue. (new version using mipmaps) I copied into the mipmaps instead, which is correct but did not work. I did a clean project, also did not fix anything. I restarted my virtual device and ran it again; This worked.

Thanks James

mipmap is new system to go check your manifest file under application tag look for a android:icon="@..../...." if its not correct change it and for just test place your icon for only xhdpi folder and check with that too.
