appicon.png on iPHONE

I am running titanium builder 1.2.1
when you create a new application, there is an option for the application icon. The default is appicon.png… if you leave the default as is, the Developer creates an app dir with appicon.png in both the iPHONE and ANDROID dirs.
But, on the iPHONE emulator, i get a blank icon.
just thought I would let someone know… just a stupid little detail.
but I will play with it more, perhaps I can fix it somewhere else…

  • I noticed that with previous nightly builds. But, since I was having so many other issues with Developer on the Mac I had gotten around to figuring out how to solve the issue. My splash screen was always the default Powered by Titanium graphic, even though I put a custom PNG in its place.

  • It needs to be named default_app_logo.png

  • Did you found any solution for this issue? I also get a blank app icon and can't make my custom icon appear.

  • I Had this issue and found an answer here in the Q&A. It seems to be a bug where project/build/iphone/info.plist does't update the value for the icon.


    If you update that to be default_app_logo.png it will start showing the default icon for your project and you can overwrite it.

  • Hi, I solved the problem by opening up the .xcodeproj file in xcode and adding the png file to the resources folder. The icon showed up properly in the simulator.

    The changes should stick.

    • That's also what I did.. but I did not want to mention it as its not a very elegant way of doing stuff.

    • Yeah… deleting the iphone build folder followed by a rebuild means having to do it again. The icon drops out.

  • You need to go click iPhone Simulator, then select "Clear Content & Settings".

    Note, this will remove all the apps on the simulator and clear the simulator's cache. Just launch the apps again, and any icon's or images you replaced will be reloaded.

    • This didn't work for me mate. Tried removing entire build/iphone folder too.
