    Will apple ever make it so we can upload our own picture to the bookmarks so that it will make the launcher pages look clean?

    As it is now when I put a web link on there it doesn't look as nice.

    Thanks

    I don't know about Apple making it so bookmarks on the homepage are prettier, but there are several apps that allow you to use your own picture as an icon. The one I like (and use) is called "Touch Icon Creator" ($.99, USD). With it, you can use any picture to make a nice-looking icon on your homescreen for your bookmarks.

    It also allows you to set up shortcuts for e-mail addresses, texts (and phone numbers on the iPhone).

    Maybe it's something you can use (again, there are other, similar apps in the AppStore)?

    I put all my weather apps under one tile. Can I change that to a picture I want?

    If you mean you've put them into a folder (?) - then, no, I'm afraid you are "stuck" with how Apple makes folders appear. Unless you jail break, then you can make folders appear how you wish. :)

    I'm sorry, but the only thing this app does (or any of the others) is change the appearance of one bookmark. You can't make a collection of them appear as anything other than the black box on a stock iPad. Sorry.

    Yes that's what I meant. You've answered it for me. Thanks!
    Maybe in a future update Apple will make it so we can edit it.
