AppBar Icon for OneDrive

    Question

  • I have a universal app that allows the user to save & synchronize the app's data using OneDrive (not that strange or unusual of an idea, is it?). I will be having the app synchronize this data when the user taps a button on the app bar. Because this feature involves OneDrive, I figured the best icon for the app bar button would be the OneDrive logo (I won't get in trouble for using the logo there, will I?). However, I could not find any premade or downloadable images of the right size or symbols in the Segoe UI Symbol font that would be appropriate for this. I can, of course, download, resize, & tweak the logo from other places, but since connecting to OneDrive isn't that uncommon of a feature for Windows Store & Windows Phone apps, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on where to find one already made that is designed for use in the App Bar. Any ideas? Thanks.

  • I understood your question, and you specifically asked about appropriateness of using the logo. We cannot provide unofficial logos. The official ones are in the link I posted.

  • You can find the OneDrive branding guidelines at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/dn673556.aspx . That page includes a zip with the official icons.

  • That information is definitely good to know and may be useful at some point, but I think you misunderstood my question. Because when resizing some images to the appropriate size for use in the App Bar, they can sometimes end up being fuzzy or lower quality, I was hoping to get an image that was already the appropriate size & resolution for use as an App Bar icon.
