3. Advanced iPhone Styling > Adding an Icon to the Home Screen

Adding an Icon to the Home Screen

Hopefully users will want to add an icon for your web app (called a “Web Clip icon”) to their home screens. They do this by tapping the plus button at the bottom of the Safari window (Figure 3-9), tapping Add to Home Screen (Figure 3-10), and clicking the Add button (Figure 3-11). By default, the iPhone will create this icon by thumbnailing the current page (including position and zoom) and applying rounded corners and a glossy effect (Figure 3-12).
