App Icon Cache?? Some icons won't update to Hi-Res. *Examples*
Okay, is there some sort of app caching or something?
This is probably at least the 5th time that I've noticed an app updating, and during the installation process I can clearly see the hi-res icon for the iPhone 4. After it finishes installing, it defaults back to the low res icon.
I've tried deleting the apps, reinstalling them.
Soft restart. Hard restart.
Deleting app, restarting phone, reinstalling app.
At first, I thought I was imagining it. But I took screen shots to prove it.
Check out the examples to see what I mean. I cropped and increased the resolution of the example qutie a bit so it could be seen easier. Also, the full-screen examples are 50% their size.
Even though the animated gif made the images a little funky, you can still tell that during installation, it was in fact a hi-res icon. After, it defaulted back to the old one.
Anyone else noticing this?
I should note that 50% of my apps update to the hi-res icons (if it's included in the update) just fine. But the other half have been doing this.

The "Before" shot is it updating the app.
The "After" is once it's finished. During the installation, hi-res. After, back to low-res.
Next time you see an update that says "iPhone 4 optimized" or something that refers to the retina display, watch it install.

Not to pick on devs, a great many work hard but seriously take the time and effort to tighten things up. Especially if they are going to get lots of alternative revenue form iAds. I for one cannot stand sloppy work or those who are lazy. Not saying any or all devs are, just saying if your going to charge or earn something put the effort in.

If a developer is going to take the time to update their app, why not at least include a hi-res icon?
