    To help draw people to my events listings website I'd like people in the area to be able to have an icon on their phones which is simply a url to my site.
    Do I need to create an App to do this and use Google Play and App Store?
    Or is there a simpler cheaper way to do this?
    Thanks in advance!

    So, when people are nearby you want something to just show up on their device to guide them to your shop or website? Good luck, these are the kinds of practices people don't like.

    From Google maps, save your location. Copy and paste the url to the people you want. You won't be able to just indiscriminately put links on peoples phone, or computer, or tablet etc. But yes, if you can get people to dl your app, it could be written to launch your location on a map, or a link to a map.

    Welcome to Android Central! On your website, include instructions on how to create a bookmarks shortcut on their desktop. For Chrome, tell them to tap the Menu button, then Add to Home Screen.
