How to Add a Bookmark to the iPad’s Home Screen

If you are constantly visiting a set of websites on your iPad using the Bookmarks bar in Safari might not be enough for you, luckily with the iPad you can add Safari bookmarks to the Home Screen. When you add a bookmark to the iPad’s Home Screen you essentially skip the process of opening Safari and choosing a bookmark or typing the site’s address. After adding a bookmark to the Home Screen you simply tap on the icon and Safari will automatically open and direct you to the page. If you want to start creating Home Screen bookmarks make sure to follow the instructions below.
