About Better Home Screen Icons

Easy Home Screen Icons And FavIcons

Customers use websites in different ways today, compared to how they did back in the earlier days of the web. Some customers still bookmark web pages and some customers add web pages to their home screen and use them like apps on their phones.

With this app you can easily add 'Home Screen icons' for iPhones and iPads and you can easily change the FavIcon (the little browser icons in the menu bar) of your shop. Just upload an image and let this app do the rest!

Apple Touch Icons

Apple iOS has a feature called “Add to Home Screen”, which basically makes your mobile website look like an app by adding an icon to the home screen.

Image sizes needed for Apple Touch Icons:

  • 120x120: iPhone Retina (iOS 7)
  • 180x180: iPhone 6 Plus (iOS 8+)
  • 152x152: iPad Retina (iOS 7)
  • 167x167: iPad Pro (iOS 8+)

Favicons

This app also supports changing the FavIcon of your shop. The FavIcon is the little icon you see in the browser bar when browsing your shop.

Image sizes needed for FavIcons to work:

  • 16x16: browser favicon
  • 32x32: taskbar shortcut icon
  • 96x96: desktop shortcut icon (and Google TV)

This app automatically resizes your uploaded image to all the right sizes needed for both Apple Touch Icons and FavIcons. Just upload a single image and you are done!

Hi, I thought this app can offer pop up screen to our visitors to save our webapp to their homescreen?

Japanese Green Tea Shop

The app does what it says. It worked on my Iphone 8, my 8Plus and my Ipad Mini (R).

Overall it's a good app. Great idea for those that do not know how to do it yourself (just google it), or if you just want to save time. I'd be willing to pay a one time fee of $10.00 for this, even $.99 a month. But I do not see any reason for a monthly charge of $4.99 for such a simple tweak.

Again, it works, but I think it should be a one time fee (or limit the number of times you can edit/change your icon). I may reinstall if they reduce the price. I'll uninstall it for now.

App did what I wanted...created favicons that are showing correctly. A bit expensive IMO but helpful. Thanks!
