As of 6.0, the main app icon goes here (note the _2x version to support higher pixel density displays, such as apple's retina):

$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/<app_name>/static/appIcon.png 36x36px
$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/<app_name>/static/appIcon_2x.png 72x72px

This icon is displayed in the app menu:

$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/<app_name>/static/appIconAlt.png 36x36px
$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/<app_name>/static/appIconAlt_2x.png 72x72px

You can -optionally- place an app logo in the same path:

$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/<app_name>/static/appLogo.png 160x40
$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/<app_name>/static/appLogo_2x.png 320x80

For backwards compatibility with 5.x, you'll also want to follow lmurphey's instructions in his answer.

For 5.x, put a 36x36 file in the following path:

<app_name>/appserver/static/appIcon.png

For 6.x, you'll also need to follow callan's recommendation in his answer.

For more information, see the list of files recommended for apps.

@BP9906: I just opened a defect ticket with the docs team to get this corrected.

Why doesnt the above answer not match the docs? The above works, the docs do not for Splunk v6. 🙂
