iPhone icon hack

In theory, this would work for the iPhone, but it doesn't. This bookmarklet inserts:

<link rel="apple-touch-icon" href="YOUR SUBMITTED URL"/>

Into the head of an open site in Safari. The theory was the iPhone would then find it when adding a webclip to the home screen. Unfortunately, the iPhone ignores it. Perhaps someone could find a way to make it work.

Create iPhone icon

The idea is you would upload an icon to your server (example), visit the site you want to apply the icon to and run the bookmarklet, inputting the full URL of the icon on your server. Safari would add the necessary code to the head and then you'd add the bookmark to the home screen.


Drew McLellan has a better bookmarklet that actually works!
