I did this for all our Slashsquare blogs and now it is very easy for me to access them with a single click. I created a folder called “Slashsquare” and placed all our blog shortcuts there. Looks organised! 😀

Add Website Links To Your Android Home Screen

Open your Google Chrome mobile browser, visit your desired website (I opened DeviceBAR, of course), go to the “Settings” > “Add to Home screen” > Enter your desired name (or keep the website name) > click “Add”. Tada! Now you can find the website icon link on your home screen.

Previously, to achieve this, you need to bookmark the website first to add it to the home screen, now you can easily do it without that.

It should display the favicon of the website in the shortcut icon, but I’m not getting it, will check it once again. If your website doesn’t have any favicon then you’ll be getting an icon with your website’s starting letter.

If you are not a fan of Google Chrome, then you can also do the same on Firefox mobile browser. Almost the same steps, you just need to open your desired website, go to the “Settings” > “Page” > “Add to Home Screen”.
