anyone else noticed, some icons display a preview of the app rather than the icon it's supposed to show ?

So far it's happening to me with ScoreCenter, Mailbox and Chrome but nothing else.

I'm seeing it with Chrome and Feedly.

Has anyone tried restarting to see if that might fix the issue?

Maybe it's not broken, maybe the'll start experimenting with live icons, I'd appreciate that. :D

I can confirm the same problem. Currently affected apps are:


Chrome
MailBox
PhotoStackr for 500px
Linkedin
Full Fitness HD
Web Albums
BBC News
Feedly
WWDC
PocketCloud
Citrix Receiver
FedEx Mobile
Woolworths
Units
Timeanddate Timer


All these apps show an image of their splash/first screen as the icon. Not sure what they have in common, but they all seem to be webapp style apps.

They may have been built using a common set of tools.

Also, restarting the iPad didn't affect it.

I Re-installed one app, PhotoStackr, to see what affect that had. That was interesting. It showed the correct app icon during the install, with the progress bar overlaid on the icon. Once the install was complete, the progress bar was removed and the icon reverted to screenshot of the application splash page.

I think it is related to the live-icon functionality in some way, but smarter folk than I will need to work out how.

Those apps are consistent with the apps on my iPad that are broken. Seems to be consistent with each app from device to device.

FWIW I've tried restarting and re-installing the broken apps.

Here's a screenshot showing Chrome and Mailbox: http://db.tt/mLrY1GGo

This seems to be fixed in beta 4.
