Iphone add url to home screen

Ever since the original iPhone, the mobile Safari browser has featured a nice little option to add an icon for the displayed website on the home screen. It’s a visual bookmark – when the user touches the icon, it will launch Safari and navigate to the website.

Follow these instructions to add a website bookmark to your home screen – it works on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, but the screenshots are taken from the iPhone:


1. In Safari, visit the website you want to store as a bookmark icon then touch the action button.


2. On the popup menu, touch the “Add to Home Screen” option.


3. Change the name to suit you. Don’t choose a name that’s too long because it needs to fit under a standard icon. Touch the Add button when you’re ready.


4. You’ll return to the home screen, which is now showing a new icon.

You’ll notice that the icon displays a miniature screenshot of the website. However, if the website offers an iPhone icon, it will actually show the icon instead.

If you have a website and you would like to offer your iPhone, iPodtouch and iPad visitors an icon for their home screens
