Samsung's TouchWiz interface is known for completely customising the look and feel of Android, but this time they may have gone too far!
Starting with the Galaxy Note 7 and Galaxy S8, TouchWiz will take your beautifully designed app icon, and surround it in a rounded square frame:
Not cool Samsung, not cool. Let’s fix it!
Users can disable this setting via a system option, but it’s turned on by default. 😡
Thankfully, there is a fix 🎉
Simply include the following meta-data tag in your app’s ApplicationManifest.xml to disable the icon frame on your app icon.
<meta-data android:name="com.samsung.android.icon_container.has_icon_container" android:value="true"/>
Your designer will thank you!
