    When downloading an app on the app store, the icon during installation is clearly high-res, and supporting the Retina display. However, after installation, the icon goes back to being low quality. What's up with that?

    I don't have an iPhone 4 so I can't be sure, but my guess would be that the layer that appears over the app icon when downloading was made by Apple to look good and fit the resolution of the retina display, but the actual app icon isn't optimized yet. but I could be wrong.

    It's a bad Photoshop, but here it is. You can clearly tell the difference.

    No your right on, That's what happens. And I know you can custom make icons for Retina, just google around.

    I'm very jealous of your giant screen shot and very clear icons

    Not without a jailbreak.. Because you need to edit the actual file inside the app.
