iOS Icons for the Device Home Page

This is a mini-product that adds stylevars for your iOS Icons. When someone saves a bookmark of your site to their device home page, it would use this icon instead of a weird page view condensed into an icon.

To install import the attached product.

To set up your icons you need three icons in PNG format:
stylevar: ios_icon
iPhone standard icon (57 x 57 pixels) apple-touch-icon-57×57-precomposed.png

stylevar: ios_retina_icon
iPhone Retina Display icon (114 x 114 pixels) apple-touch-icon-114×114-precomposed.png

stylevar: ios_ipad_icon
iPad icon (72 x 72 pixels) apple-touch-icon-72×72-precomposed.png

Upload these to the images directory in your vBulletin5 Connect directory.

If you use the names above, that is all you need to do. If you change the file names, you need to change the stylevars for the icons in the Style Variable Editor. Apple recommends you keep the same file names though.

This addon contains no PHP code.

Nice, thank you. Any chance we'll see this this for 4.2.x?

I was not planning on a 4.2.X version.

I have installed and it works great. This is what I was looking for, but i have a small problem. My logo is a circle and the iphone icon is square, the corners appears to me in black and I would like to be white. How can I solve that? Is there an ipad retina option to install? I have checked in a ipad retina and the logo doesn´t appear.

Also, I would like to know if there is an option to do the same for Android, I would be really interested.
