1. Due to the recent site upgrade, the iPadForums (iPF) App will no longer work. The new iPadForums.net website has been designed from the ground up to work perfectly from any mobile, tablet, or desktop computer using the built in internet browser. Create a shortcut to iPadForums.net on your home screen by following these steps: Create an icon for iPadForums.net

    In our business we have just proposed that we create iPad shortcuts for many exhibitors within a pavilion at a tradeshow. Now I need to figure out how to create the icons.

    Basically I want to take a companies logo and make it the icon you tap just like any other basic app icon (safari, itunes, mail, photos etc). This icon will take you to any number of places such as their website, a photo collection etc.

    The second solution I will need is how to customise a folder icon. I know you can take an individual icon, drag it not another and make a folder. If I put 5 icons in a folder how do I then use a custom image (logo) for the folder?

    I am sure this will be so incredibly easy i will be embarassed so go for it ... make me feel stupid.

    You will need a registered developer (or at least the registered development tool-chain) to do this for you, which can easily create icons/apps and upload them to an iPad.

    This can be very easily done, contact a local developer. We are in Montreal.

    You cannot do any of these things on the iPad. Except make a shortcut to their website on the home screen. Yes you need to be a developer and make an app to do what you want. Apple Developer you have to pay $100 a year and learn the code.

    There is an app for creating simple icons. It is very easy. Here is a picture of my folder for the websites that I have created using the Touch Icon app. You can create an icon for a website and an icon for email. The Touch + app is pictured in the upper left corner.

    If you have jpg files of each of your clients' company logo, you need to have each logo in your photo app so you can pull each logo in as you create the icon in the app.

    The only way I have figured out how to customize folders is changing their names. I don't know if you can create a custom image for the folder as it uses little icons to represent what is in the folder.
