Strong opinions, weakly held

iPhone WebClip icons

A couple of notes for iPhone users. The first is that Web pages you add to your home screen do not automatically update their icons when the creator of a site changes them. I noticed that Google Reader had a new favicon this morning, and guessed that they’d added an iPhone WebClip icon as well. I opened Google Reader to see if the WebClip icon changed automatically — it did not. However, when I deleted the WebClip bookmark and added it again, Google Reader did in fact have a custom icon.

The second note is that Google Reader has a new WebClip icon, so go get it. Google Mail and Google Calendar still don’t have their own icons.

  1. It looks like they are autoupdating these icons now. Today Gmail’s web clip on my phone changed from a custom one I managed to finangle to the slanted Gmail icon.
