    Default My MMi homescreen icon - your opinions
    I'm not a big fan of the MMi homescreen icon for 1.1.3, so I went ahead and made my own. I stuck to the simple iPhone icon shape to match with the default theme. Post your comments on it.


    Also, I'd like to know what the exact size for a webpage homescreen icon has to be..

    i like it,
    and the correct size is 57x57 pixels

    per apples website:
    iPhone and iPod touch allow a user to save a Web Clip bookmark to your site on their Home Screen.

    To specify a bookmark icon for all pages of a web site, place a PNG image named "apple-touch-icon.png" at the root directory of your web server - similar to the "favicon.ico" for site icons.

    To override the site bookmark icon on a specific web page, insert a <link> element similar to <link rel="apple-touch-icon" href="/customIcon.png"/> within the <head> element of the page.

    The bookmark icon dimensions should be 57x57 pixels. If the icon is a different size it will be scaled and cropped to fit.

    Safari will automatically composite the icon with the standard "glassy" overlay so it looks like a built-in iPhone or iPod application.
    and according to another site:
    The default size seems to be 57x57 but it was later discovered that a 60x60 image creates a much shaper icon.
