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

    It is actually quite simple. I am looking to create an icon for my website that will, when I "Add To Home Screen" will show up instead of a screencapture of the site. What are the requirements for that to happen?

    I use an app to make "nice" icons out of my bookmarks - "Touch Icon Creator" ($.99, USD). With it, you can use any picture in your camera role to create an icon for a URL. It also lets you set links for e-mail addresses and such.

    That's just one suggestion of what I do. Hopefully, someone will have another (maybe better) idea...

    I ended up getting it, just needed the specs for the file on the web site. I already had the icon, I just wanted to make sure, when one goes to my website, it pulled that icon to the home screen by default.

    thanks, tho.
