Handy Iphone/touch/ipad tip.

While doing some tweeks to our site I came across this tip for putting a custom 'icon' onto an iphone/touch/ipad, kind of like a 'favicon' 9the little image that displays in the address bars of browsers.

http://www.askdavetaylor.com/how_to_create_custom_apple_iphone_website_icon.html

simply put, I drew a 158 x 158 pixel graphic called " apple-touch-icon.png " and upload it to the same place as your favicon. The Apple will add the round corners and the shading.

Now, if a customer bookmarks your page to their home screen (its the '+' sign on the iphone's web browser) they get that icon rather than the generic snapshot of a page of your site.

OK, its hardly essential of earth shattering but these little things do 'surprise and delight' some customers. We have a youngish customer base to whom mobiles are such a part of their life that we are exploring ways to tap this.
