Custom Home Screen Icons for iPhone Web Apps


Today’s iPhone software version 1.1.3 supports a feature called WebClip which lets you add a bookmark icon for a website or iPhone specific web app directly to your home screen. While doing this the iPhone asks the server for an image called apple-touch-icon.png:

84.131.nnn.nnn - - [15/Jan/2008:23:51:59 +0100] "GET /apple-touch-icon.png HTTP/1.1" 404 226 "-" "CFNetwork/152.4"

The image has to be 57 by 57 pixels and Safari will automatically add a glassy overlay so the new icon will look like a native iPhone icon.
