iPad Why can't I STILL get a Retina icon for saving a website to my home screen?

    You would think that by now, with almost ALL devices running iOS 6 being Retina devices, Apple would offer Retina icons for saved sites on the home screen. But no, I have this ugly icon sitting in my dock.

    Since there is no JB for iOS 6 and the iPad 3 yet, am I stuck with this icon?

    What icons are you speaking of specifically? If you're talking about generic, random websites on the Internet, the retina icon would be the responsibility of that sites developers.

    If the site developer doesn't have one created, it defaults to a picture of the page you are on...

    It's the black icon on the left of my dock. It's the website I use for work, so I like easy access quick. It just looks like crap.

    If it's the logo of the company that created the website that can't be something that Apple created. It's probably the favicon of the site or something. Chances are it's the guys who created the site that need to come up with a higher resolution graphic. It's not like Apple has a horde of graphic designers locked in a basement somewhere churning out home screen icons for every page on the web....

    that's not too bad

    lack of a reflection on top, and lots of pixels, but I believe you can live with it.

    Or else, you can create a favicon.png and forward it to your webmaster | Google the specs

    This icon has nothing to do with Apple. You'd need to contact the webmaster of that site and ask them if the would make a retina version favicon for their site.
