    Hi everyone,

    This question might be specific to HTC phones, but I'm not sure. I have various bookmarks for sites with decent webapps that I'd like to have as icons on my homescreen. What I would like is for their icons to be specific to the site (like iOS or BlackBerry), but instead what happens is I get the ugly red HTC Sense bookmark icon for each of them. Does anyone know of any way to get the site-specific icons to appear (or if it's even possible)? Thanks!

    I know what you mean. I use Go launcher ex. With go launcher you can change the icon to whatever you want. I change the bookmark icon to the facebook app icon. Not sure you can do it with htc sense

    You have to go about it in a different way than just adding it to home screen from your browser.
    You have to bookmark the page in the browser, then via your home screen add a shortcut to this bookmark. This will provide the websites icon to the webapp!

    This site describes the process in more detail.
