    Whenever i update an app and (in the app store) there is a new icon.. i never actually get the new icon... it stays the same as the one i previously had...

    the only app that updates the icon for me is Pocket God...


    and i know that there is a problem because in the description for the app's update it says "new icon"



    arrgh i dont kow if this is making any sense, but is there any way to make sure your apps have the most recent app icons?

    I'm using and iPhone 4 running 4.0

    I tried updating the apps manually in iTunes on my Mac, and that doesn't work... i've also tried un-installing the apps with outdated icons and then re-installing them... and that doesnt work either

    If you update the app using the app store on the device do you get the new icon?

    same here, the icon updates while the app is updating but once its finished it reverts back to the old one

    That's because the updating icon is the iTunes app icon, which is a larger resolution than the one actually used (if the app hasn't been updated with higher resolution icons).
