Try the new live icon feature on pattern.dk/sun.

I knew that the icon could live update with web apps, but never thought to use it like this! With native apps could change their icon dynamically.
That's pretty cool. I can only guess: The number and background is combined in a canvas and then saved as PNG.. replacing the current icon?
@simurai Basically yes — I'm drawing the icon with Canvas.
Apple only allows icon changes within 1 second after app launch though, so had to make some pretty weird workarounds.
@Jakob Henner digging that!
This is incredibly creative. You have a special place in my heart @Jakob Henner
This is so great.
I remember since I got my first iPhone that It always surprised me that the official iOS weather app never did this.
Nicely done sir, nicely done.
Impressive work man.
Fantastic design and great idea.
You have to share your technique in a blog post for changing the app icon! Not sure if I would ever need it but am curious about the happenings :)
I second @paulFarnio - would make a great blog post
