Access your Favorite Websites easily on the iPhone

Safari Application Icon

The other day I was chatting with a friend who recently bought an iPhone. When I was looking at his iPhone I noticed some icons which I had never seen before. It turned out that these icons were bookmarks to his favorite websites. A nice little feature mobile Safari offers is the facility to drop bookmarks on your Home screen.

  1. Open the site you want to have a shortcut for in mobile Safari.
  2. Resize and move the page to the section you want to start off the next time you open the shortcut. Mobile Safari will remember the exact position.
  3. Press the + sign in the bottom toolbar and select Add To Home Screen. The iPhone will make a screenshot of the page, which will be used as an icon on the Home screen.

Go ahead, now you have a convenient shortcut on your Home screen.
