    Default Download bookmark onto home screen

    Hey everyone,

    A question which I have been Googling around for, for a while now. But I cannot find the right solution or maybe I just am looking for the wrong thing.

    I want a school paper to be viewable on an Iphone/Ipad. I worked the paper out into a website and I know anyone can visit the website, and bookmark it for them to have an icon on their 'desktop' to my website.

    But I wonder. It should also be possible to download a bookmark instantly for the user to have the bookmark on his phone, without having to visit the website first. Could anyone please tell me how this can be done? Basically a button which simulates an app but in reality is simply a bookmark/url to website.

    Any help or even a suggestion of what to look for would be really appreciated!

    With kind regards,

    Default Download bookmark onto home screen

    Visit the site in Safari. Tap the box with the up arrow.

    And select add to home screen. A icon will appear on the home screen for what you bookmarked.
