What you’ll find inside
Icons can contribute greatly, speeding comprehension and understanding, when their form is recognizable and builds on a user’s past experience. It’s a lot like writing: if you can say it in three to five words, there’s no reason to write an entire paragraph.
For mobile use, icons make excellent touch targets. When sized large enough (e.g. 48 px), they’re easily activated. And as a bonus, this also makes it very easy to hit them with a desktop or laptop cursor.
If you’ve ever wondered when you should use an icon — or an icon with a label, or just a label — download my FREE When to Use Icons Cheat Sheet.
It’s a simple series of Yes/No questions that will help you determine when (and when not) to use an icon.
