    So today I discovered "apng" which stands for "animated portable network graphics" and I saw how the images are read as png's. So I thought that I could make an animated application icon! But later I found out that it isn't even supported :[
    The only systems that can read this file is firefox 3 and up, and opera 9.5 and up.

    I found this kind of interesting, and it would be really cool if a dev could make these "apng" to read on the iphone or ipod os!

    Why? It's not a very popular format and most people would rather just use animated gifs.

    You can use a gif as a wallpaper with winterboard (use the htlm file from a theme and change the .png to .gif....it will work!)

    I like the idea of apng as it looks better then a gif and you can edit it better (im a png guy). I think apple might add support for it in a future fw.
