    I have added several Internet links to my iPad desktop. Is there a way to change the assigned icon to something more representative of the underlying link?

    I've found that if I use the $0.99 (USD) app called Touch Icon, it helps me make nice looking (and representative!) icons.

    Mainly cause I'm too lazy to re-type, see my description of this app here (post #2): http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-apps/37695-bookmark-icon.html

    There are others that can do this ... this is the one that I use. YMMV.

    Hope this helps, and is what you are looking for.

    Thanks for the info about Touch Icon.

    Installed it and found it to be just what I was looking for.
