    Default Icon Launch To Specific Web Site
    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!!

    Here you go. Just go inside this app, and change the "url.txt" file to whatever website you want to go to. Erica came up with this little gem.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    Thanks!
    You can name it whatever you like. And you simply place it in the Applications folder, just like any other App.

    So I want to install this via iBrickr, what is the deal with the permissions? Is this something that NEEDS to be done if I install via iBrickr? How come the permissions are not already set?
