Remove the gloss from an iPhone app icon

If you don't particularly like that gloss effect, there is a way to remove it. This video tutorial will show you how to remove the gloss from any iPhone or iPod Touch app icon.

You will need to use Apple's Xcode, which is Apple's premiere development environment for Mac OS X. Every new Mac should have it, so watch the video and begin changing the way your application icons look on your cell phone or iPod.
