    Want a Custom Home Screen Shortcut?

    Advertisement



    There has been a number of posts lately about having a home screen shortcut to a web page you want to access with one click.

    What I'm trying to determine is if there is enough demand to offer such a service.

    Keep in mind, it's illegal to use copyrighted icons and images, etc, and the shortcuts would have to be for something legit, no porn, illegal .mp3's, etc.

    Here are the two questions you can answer:

    1. Would anyone be interested in having a way to get custom shortcuts?

    2. What fair and reasonable price would you be willing to pay for a custom shortcut?


    If there is sufficient interest, I can get this up and running in just a few days.

    Might be tough to charge for. There is a free service already that allows you to make your own shortcut and even add your own icons...

    But for those who can't, or don't know how to set it up on there own there could be a market.

    Jonathan's app is very good, I've used it myself.

    This would appeal more to someone that has their own site they want a custom launch for, or some folks just like to design their own.

    JFs is very easy to use, though had to modify my url a couple of times...

    ON OTA and PC

    Downloaded the utility
    downloaded shortcut1

    Opened paint on PC, made a 32x32 png Black with white initials for the website I wanted.. basic one for now.

    Uploaded to photobucket and emailed my bb with the link

    on BB opened mail, copied link
    open utility
    pasted url for icon
    typed in url for page
    closed and saved.

    Horray it worked lol. ON the url for the page I actually went to the page and used page address and copied it but it didnt like it until I took off the very last / of addy/zip/
