    If that page is accessible through safari you should be able to just make a bookmark for it. You can define the image used when people drop bookmarks on their home screen.

    shortcut icon on iphone

    If we think from customer experience point of view I would only want to send one url to automatically perform all the above task as mentioned in your attached email.

    1 – customer click on some particular link
    2 - it should automatically create a shortcut icon on iphone home screen with my company logo.

    Is it possible? ?

    thanks

    I don't think it is, I believe they would have to navigate to the page you want your customers to put on the home screen and then manually add it.

    If I was your customer, I'd be pretty annoyed that you were adding stuff to my phone without verifying it with me...which is what the iPhones "create shortcut" function would do.

    What's your website? Remind me never to visit it. If the customer wants to bookmark your site they will it's bad business to force it on them.

    Create a 58px x 58px image (you can use a square image) and upload it to your server. Then place the following code into the <head> section of your document.

    <link rel="apple-touch-icon" href="http://icon-image-link-goes-here"/>


    This will create a nice icon if they bookmark the site on their iPhone.
