Hey there,

I don't really have an Android to test this on but this may help:

Neither do I.

Those are the tags that need to be in the html file; got those. I guess I should have asked, "How do I get a bookmark on the homescreen?"


And, if you google what I just wrote you'll find: http://philwilson.or...oid-home-screen

I believe DataZombies answered his/her own question with the link that was posted:

http://philwilson.or...oid-home-screen

I haven't been able to try the steps listed on that site, but I assume they will help you add a url link to the Android homepage. If it doesn't add the icon, it may not be possible.

Sorry I can't be of more help. If anyone else out there knows the answer, please chime in.

Jake
