Custom iPhone icon HOWTO

A friend asked me for tips on how to use custom/better icons on the iPhone home screen for bookmarks to certain web sites. I figured I’d just write it up here.

  1. Start by deleting and re-saving the bookmark. Some popular sites (like NewsGator) have added custom iPhone icons, but if you made your bookmarks the first day you’re stuck with the default.
  2. This trick from Cameron Hunt allows you to choose from some prefab icons suitable for general use or certain popular sites.
  3. If you’re comfortable with HTML, you can dig a little deeper with this trick and use any icon you want.

  1. Sweet. Del.icio.us, wikipedia, and Newsgator fill out the three open spots on the home page. They all have stylish icons. Thanks. – Dan
