Is there anyone working on something where one can just click and icon and it take you right to a specific web site? I see like Frenzic Web app has an icon and takes you right online to their web page. I need one for a page I use a lot!!

Google "iPhone Apper"

Set permissions to 0755

If you want to use this for more than one site, you'll also have to go into the Info.plist and change the "com.sadun.Blackboard" ID to something else like "com.sadun.Blueboard" for instance. This is to give each App a unique ID.Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.

Here's something I'm trying to figure out: is there a way to name the window that's opened in Safari, so that if, say, you launch BeeJive, log in, then go back to the Springboard, and click the icon again (which would launch another instance of BeeJive in a new Safari window), it simply pulls up the window already open?

Eurisko, where do I SSH this folder(Goto Localhost.app) in? And can I change the name of the folder to like "facebook.app"?

Thanks guys, both of these are what I am looking for but for some reason the Iphone Apper just always returns "Oops. There was an error. Make sure you entered a Title, Url, and uploaded a PNG file." on the site no matter what I do.
On the Goto Localhost app, how do i manually install that. I have iPhonebrowser installed, I just haven't installed anything manually yet. Everything I have done has been through installer other than some custom icons and such I popped in through iPhonebrowser.
Ahhhh figured out where to install it....threw it in the Applications folder and it showed up when i rebooted the phone. But it doesnt work.....I click the icon and it opens a white screen for about 30 secs or so and then closes. What did I do wrong? Sent it in with iPhonebrowser.

Hey, i tried this out for my fav webpage...got it working and everything...i tried replacing my own icon for this one cause it's a grey square with a question mark. Mine is 60x60 and in png format. I can ssh it to the folder but the icon doesn't update and stays the grey one. Am i stuck or is there anything i can do to change? thanks

It's simple: Delete old app from iPhone, change icon and install this mod app again Simple
