Step 2: Enter the website


Step 3: Verify the Website URL is correct. Choose the action button in the middle (square with arrow in it) to access options...


Step 4: On the pop-up menu, touch the "Add to HomeScreen" option. 


Step 5: Change the name to suit you. Don’t choose a name that’s too long because it needs to fit under a standard icon. Touch the Add button when you’re ready.


Step 6: You’ll return to the home screen, which is now showing a new icon. You’ll notice that the icon displays a miniature screenshot of the website. However, if the website offers an iPhone icon, it will actually show the icon instead.
