Do you have favorite websites you always do visiting each and every day? Think websites like jilaxzone.com (for tech tweak & life experience articles), wikipedia.org (for getting to know some historical roots), AllRecipes.com (for those who like cooking), IMDB.com (for those who like to check movie reviews), StackOverflow.com (for those who like to seeks help on any programming issues), Booking.com (for those who like to travel and find travel deals) and many other great websites. For sure you do have favorite websites you are (almost) visiting each and every day.

Turned out, there’s a way to simplify your life when visiting your favorite websites!

Every time you are trying to visit those favorite websites of yours, you need to:

1) First open your browser.

2) Then either head into bookmark folders/tab and find the website you are looking for and tap on it to start reloading the website page, or

3) Manually key-in the website address and tap enter to start loading the website page.

Actually there’s a way to make it even simpler and easier for you to visit those favorite websites of yours, by turning each of your favorite websites into an app icon on your Home Screen. Yes, it’s just like having another app on your Home Screen.

Turning your favorite website into app icon for easier access for Android and iPhone (iOS)

Before going into the details, turning your favorite websites into app icon on your Home Screen do have some advantages:

1) Once you converted the web page into app icon, it’s a single tap each and every time you like to visit the website.

2) You can stop remembering website URLs. You can also stop opening browser as well since the app icon will open the browser automatically for you.

3) It doesn’t take storage space, since it’s a web page. In case your device is running out of memory, you may want to delete these apps and instead opening their websites and turning into app-icon as well: Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Reddit and other memory-sucking apps.

4) In case you want greater focus and become more productive, a website turning into an app icon won’t give you any notifications pop-up.
