Default Is it possible to give a freq used Web URL its own App Icon?

Please Login to Remove!

I use a specific site very often and I find it cumbersome to launch the browser, go to bookmarks and click to go to the URL. I was wondering If I could make a bookmarked URL its own App Icon that I could click on and go there directly?

Quicklaunch, a 3rd party app, can do that for you. You can check it out here: BlackBerry App World - QuickLaunch.

I use Iconify. While I do also have/use QuickLaunch, I sometimes prefer websites to have their own launch icon. Both will take the tedium out of retyping URL's from frequently visited sites.

Really dumb that RIM hasn't yet done that, as they recently have with BBM, where you can add a direct link to a contact on the home screen. iPAD/iPHONE's have this feature, as do most other smartphones...wake up RIM. You're getting hammered by the competition, the analysts, and the stock market....wake up!
