High resolution iPhone logo?

Howdy,

I have Civinfo on the home screen of my iPhone 5. I was wonderng if you have the power to change the logo to a high res one as it looks all bitty and out of place on my home screen

I have attached a screenshot although doesn't show it brilliantly

Thanks,
Me xxxx

Where is that graphic from? Is it a shortcut to Tapatalk (you can do that on Android) or is it something else...?

Pottsy the icon is created from when you create a bookmark/favorite from a web page and put the shortcut on your home screens for easy access

That's exactly right. It's when you bookmark it to your home screen.

Thanks

Ah, OK got it. Apple keeping us all on our toes by creating web "standards" all on their own!

Yes, some Android browser writers have noticed that Apple have asked webmasters to use these non-standard icons and some browsers pick some of them up some of the time.

Everything you always wanted to know about touch icons · Mathias Bynens

Microsoft made a huge mistake when it produced non standard html for Frontpage/IE many years ago. Much has been written about it and even Microsoft realise it was bad and have pushed ahead with standards-compliant browsers and code ever since.

Meanwhile, under our noses, Apple are now doing just what MS did in the past, and it's a nightmare. Sell those shares!
