Apple Touch Icons

Apple have now given users the ability to add links to both the iPod Touch and iPhone home page screens for any website. This is a really great feature in the latest software upgrade (even with the additional cost for us iPod Touch owners).

When you bookmark a page in this way the icon used for this home page is simply a thumbnail screenshot of the webpage page unless that website has added a ‘touch icon’ graphic for the site.

Back to work

I had a great break with all my family down in Cornwall last week and just about managed to keep away from the world of web.

I did however make time to read Cameron Moll‘s new Mobile Web Design book. It was a nice short read while on holiday but what it lacked in length it certainly made up for in quality.
