    Is there anyway to add a direct shortcut on the home screen on iPhone (iOS 7) to a numbers file?

    I have a document that I open often, and rather than open numbers, wait until it loads all my spreadsheets, fins know I want, open it would be easier for a shortcut direct to open it.

    Thanks

    I don't think it can be done, at least not without jailbreaking.

    Ah big pity that. I'm not into jailbreaking so looks like stuck?

    Delete Numbers the open link in Safari and open it. Great a home page then reinstall numbers

    Creating a home screen link to a Numbers document

    Using a program called 'Workflow' from App Store. This task can be accomplished in a few ways. Below is one to consider:

    - Open Numbers document (Pages may work also?)
    - Touch COLABORATION icon : Touch 'send Link' : Choose 'CopyLink'
    - Open Workflow : Using 'Open Bookmark' workflow from Gallery : Paste URL and add title
    - Touch SHARE icon : Choose 'Add to desktop' : Follow instructions

    TaDa!

    Hope that helps someone.
