Via Scott Hanselman I learned that you can influence the icon that iOS users will see when they add your web application to their home screen. Just follow the link above to see how.

In actuality it looks better. There is a huge color saturation difference between iOS and Windows. Note also that if you have a light icon, you may want to darken it quite a bit, since it will get the shiny bevel treatment of Apple.
