I've seen it across all sorts of websites for iPhone apps or Mac applications,
but i can't seem to make it by making a colored layer and adding an inner glow, because the inner glow always comes out all square and messed up.

how do i do it?

The easiest way is to use a circular gradient from the center.

just from white to blue?

or perhaps, a white to transparent gradient on a separate layer over a blue layer?

Just use the two colors you want at each end of the gradient :o

This should help to clarify. Just follow the gradient directions in the tutorial listed below and as the poster above stated, it is then a matter of just picking your preferred colours.
