The little app icons on your ipad's home screen can launch apps, or link to websites. Adding a website shortcut icon is a huge timesaver. Most users prefer adding homescreen app icons, so less time has to be spent typing in web addresses or scrolling through a list of bookmarks. To do this:
1. Browse to the site for which you wish to bookmark/create homescreen icon.
2. Once there, tap the actions button at the top left of the Safari browser screen (see illustration 1).
3. Choose 'Add to Home Screen.'

4. In the next window that drops down, give this new app icon a name. After you click the blue 'add' button, you'll be taken to your ipad app screen and you can see/test out your new shortcut!
