How to create website icons on iPad’s & iPhone’s homescreen

There are several ways to bookmark your favorite websites in Safari on your iOS device (iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch). You can simply add a bookmark to your bookmark list, or you can add it to your bookmark bar so as to have it easily accessible in Safari all the time.

The bookmark bar is a nice place to keep those faves handy

But there’s even a third way that not everyone seems to have heard of so I thought I’d share it with you here: adding bookmarks as an icon to your homescreen! This way, your most frequented websites will be just one tap away, no need for you to first open Safari, then access the bookmarks and then tap on it.
It’s always easier to learn these things by seeing them demonstrated, and fortunately I found a demo video in my grandmother ComiGran’s closet, who has been gathering iPad tips since before the War – and apparently recording them! Therefore it’s with great pride that I now present to you:

Now that you’ve tried that for yourself: are you going to add your favorite websites to your homescreen or do you prefer another way of bookmarking?
