    I need to disable the apple provided gloss on both the small app icon and large itunes store icon.

    I know this is possible for both icons as i have seen many with no gloss on the itunes store.

    someone has to know how to do this...i know the 57x57 app icon you have to edit something in the plist file, but i dont remember where i read that.

    Not sure about the big itunes icon.

    You used to be able to set a flag in your info.plist for this, but as of 2.1 it looks like Apple has disabled it either on purpose or by accident...case in point al the apps on my phone are now glossy

    Edit: I take that back, turn out some of them aren't...I think the datacase app confused me because they went from non-glossy to glossy.

    You need to add this to your Info.plist:

    Code:
    <key>UIPrerenderedIcon</key>
    <true/>
    That's not quite true—only certain apps have this problem. My own shows up fine without the added gloss, and I count at least 30 others on my phone that don't have it either.

    When you submit the 512x512 icon, it looks at that same flag in the Info.plist file.

    boolean

    Use a boolean in the Info.plist for UIPrerenderedIcon to work, not a string @"YES".
