iPhone ‘Add to Home Screen’ Custom Icon

Posted on Thursday, March 11, 2010 in General Tips, Tutorials, Web Design

When you bookmark your website on an iPhone or iTouch by default it takes a screen shot of the current page. If you want to add a custom icon follow these simple steps!

1)  Create an image 129x129px 72dpi. This is the correct size! Other website debate the actual size, but for top quality and crispness use 129px by 129px. Make sure to save it as a PNG. (in photoshop go to ‘Save For Web & Devices’)

2A) In the head “<head></head>” of your website add this code:

<link rel=”apple-touch-icon” href=”customIconURL.png” />

2B) You can also just drop an image named “apple-touch-icon.png” in your root directory and it will work the same.

That’s it. Now on your iDevice add your site to the home page and boom!

CSUN Drops Swim Program!

Posted on Wednesday, March 3, 2010 in Speak Your Mind

Cal State Northridge drops swimming program

Citing ongoing state budget woes, Cal State Northridge Athletic Director Rick Mazzuto has discontinued the men’s and women’s swim teams. It’s the first time since the Matadors cut football in 2001 that the school has discontinued a sports team. Mazzuto said the school will drop from 20 to 18 sports offered.

He said the school will eventually save $300,000 a year when swimming scholarships are phased out. LINK

Programs like this promote future leaders, team development, discipline… Who else thinks this is hodgepodge?! If you feel the same way Speak Your Mind below! Also, I was part of this program and on scholarship, it’s hard for me to believe that it will be saving $300,000a year, not sure where that’s coming from….
