public class HelloDroid extends Activity {
    /** Called when the activity is first created. */
    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        TextView tv = new TextView(this);

the icon will be added automatically to the list of all applications when your app is installed.

in your AndroidManifest.xml, you'll see something like

<application android:icon="@drawable/icon48x48"

Open in new window


which tell Android what Icon to use for that.
