how to create a blog iphone app icon

Ok, many of you iPhone pros may already know this trick.  But one of my friends just showed me how to create a Gimme Some Oven app icon on my iPhone, and I had to share it with you!!

Basically, it is just a simple way to create an icon on your homepage for any website (or, um, food blog) that you love.  So instead of having to open a browser like Safari or Chrome, you can go straight to the source.  Brilliant!

Here’s the quick how-to…

Clearly, you can see that I had a bit of an email and voicemail buildup today.  Oh the joys of taking the afternoon off to get a haircut.  :)

Hope this little tutorial might be a help to you!

I would also recommend adding apps for our new Gimme Some pages:

    Great idea! I have a desktop version that sits in my line of apps so I can go straight to my site without a browser. Love shortcuts.

    Yes, I love this trick. I was hoping this was a tutorial on how to make an app for others to download. I guess that’s much more complicated though. :)

    This is actually just a shortcut, not really an app.
