The launch icon is essential in making our SAP customer apps beautiful and to clearly communicate to the user the apps’ main purpose. Launch icons may use our Fiori for iOS branding guidelines or can be themed using the customers own branding. Launch icons are found in the app store, home screen, system settings, and search results.
