I noticed there are some apps like Yowza, 3D Camera, etc., that have no borders.. they're not in the "shiny glass box" like most app icons. How do devs do that?

Thanks. Did some deeper digging.. that's actually not the simplest way.

Simplest way: open up the project in Xcode, open the Info.plist file, add a new row and choose "Icon already includes gloss and bevel effects" and checkmark it (set to true). Helps to delete the "build" folder, then rebuild & go.

What's not the simplest way? Not reading the Programming Guide? :confused:

Seems they upgraded the Info.plist to make this easier and renamed the UIPrerenderedIcon setting.

Yeah, the non simple way was to dive into the plist file in XML mode and add the UIPrerenderedIcon value. :) Much simpler to just add a new row through the UI of Xcode and check the box.. done.
