How to get the current application icon in ios

Is there a way to get the current application icon in a cocoa-touch app?
Thank you.


I based my answer completely on moosgummi's, but returning a UIImage instead.

UIImage *appIcon = [UIImage imageNamed: [[[[NSBundle mainBundle] infoDictionary] objectForKey:@"CFBundleIconFiles"] objectAtIndex:0]];

The UIImage automatically selects the suitable version (normal, @2x, ~ipad, ~ipad@2x or any future suffix). (BTW, don't you just hate this stupid scheme for identifying versions of images? It was just getting out of hand. Thank god for Asset Catalogues!)
