How to Create Website Shortcuts on iPhone and iPad through Safari iOS 7

Is there a website you visit every day? Like do you just start your online meanderings with one particular website (or a group of them)? If yes, then creating a website shortcut on the iPhone/iPad (for the websites) would make sense for productivity.

In this short iOS 7 tutorial, we’re looking at an age-old (and very popular) method of creating shortcuts to websites on the iDevice. This is a very basic tutorial so feel free to skip to the bottom for other ideas.

Adding a shortcut to the website basically means adding a shortcut icon to the website/webpage. The icon looks like an app amidst all of your other apps.

Here’s how to add a website shortcuts on the iPhone/iPad Homescreen:

  • Open Safari
  • Type in the web address
  • After the website loads, tap on the share icon at the bottom
  • In the share sheet, tap on Add to Home Screen
  • Give the website a name in the first text field (it’s up there by default but if you want to change it, do it here)
  • Tap on Add from top-right.

That’s it. That website will get added as an icon-shortcut. The icon is usually the favicon of the website that you just added. You can’t change that. Nevertheless, here’s your website.

This was for one website. If you routinely follow a handful of websites, the best choice would be RSS readers but if you like to visit the websites directly (all the time), you might want to do this:

Add each the website as a shortcut following the steps mentioned above. Then, put all the website shortcuts into a folder and name it something convenient like ‘Websites.’ Done! This is an easier way of keeping up with websites that you follow with the freedom of picking one website at a time instead of going through all the posts from all the websites.

iCloud tabs is another way but it’s not as much a ‘way’ – it just works when you are just handling a lot of tabs and need them across your device.
