I go to pretty much the same sites every day before anything else, and I like access to these sites to be pretty simple. So I was intrigued when I saw that iOS 6 allowed me to make a home screen icon for a webpage.
From within Safari, browse the website you want to make an icon for and hit the share button up at the top. It’s the one that looks like a box with an arrow coming out of it.
Once the share box pops up, you’ll see an option in the middle – Add to home screen. Tap it, name the shortcut (or don’t – there’s a name in there by default), and click add.
Voila – home screen shortcut!
