UIBarButtonItem Icons

Over the weekend, I did a little more work on app #2. For project like this, there’s always the question of whether or not it’s even feasible. I think I’ve gotten to the point where I’m pretty sure the answer is, “yes”. So I took a break from the heavy coding and worked on some icons for my toolbar.

In the process, I did find out something interesting: The colors of the images used for UIBarButtonItem buttons aren’t used. In other words, it doesn’t matter what colors your images are, you’ll just get a white shape on your toolbar. But since the opacity of your image is used, you can get different values of grays by fading the image.
