iPhone bookmark iconage

Tuesday, January 15, 2008

If you’re wondering how to control the icon that gets generated for your webpage with the new 1.1.3 iPhone release, look no further than Apple’s iPhone Dev Center.

Apple has added a section called “Create a WebClip Bookmark Icon” and it calls for a 57x57 pixel icon. After some testing today I’ve concluded this recommended sizing results in a fuzzy icon, largely due to the iPhone being a 163 ppi display.

Instead of sticking with the recommended sizing I bumped it up to 158x158. When this gets scaled you’ll be left with a crisp icon that sits nicely amongst Apples crisp icons. Onward.
