    Creating a launch icon on home screen from web bookmark?

    Advertisement



    Hi all,

    Not sure if this had been answered before but I really like
    to launch a web bookmark from the home screen instead of the bookmarks page. (I.e CNN mobile launcher)
    Is there a way to do this or an application that let's you ?

    Thx

    Alot of popular sites will have a version you can download...

    Or here you can make your own... with your own graphics and all http://m.jonathanhfisher.co.uk/

    I believe I put mine on photobucket and it will find them once you put the url of the photo you made on the shortcut... Then it will load it the first time you use the shortcut and you will have to redownload the pic after every reboot (but this is automatic the first time you use the shortcut after a reboot)

    Here is the one for CNN

    http://m.cnn.com/cnn_03/item/bb

    Found from google " cnn blackberry launcher app "

    Also you can find alot out there that others have made and are available to install..

    Also JerryD has some already found and listed here..

    It takes many professionals versed in many different area's to help the masses, I am just a single drop in that pool.

    It seems that when the logo is on the phone itself it dissapears... all was fine but now I can't get a logo with the shortcut ( even downloaded the shortcut 1 and 2 )

    You have to use the main app to edit the shortcut and give it a url pointing to a picture (and i believe it has to be the correct size) on a hosting site.
