Android Home Screen Apps

Add Web Apps to Home Screen in Android

In Android devices, adding a web application to the home screen is a bit more difficult, but not impossible:

1. In the browser, add a bookmark for the current page:

  • Tap the menu button.
  • Select “Bookmarks.”
  • Select the location marked with a star and the “Add” text.
  • Tap OK.

2. Tap the “Home” button.

3. On the home screen:

  • Tap the menu button.
  • Select “Add.”
  • Select “Shortcut.”
  • Select “Bookmark.”
  • Select the bookmark to your app.

You will have now an icon on your home screen that will take you directly to the web application.
