Your smartphone/tablet's homescreen isn't just for apps. You can put bookmarks on it, too, creating one-tap shortcuts to your favorite web sites, like It'll save you time, and you won't have to keep typing in the URL.

On iPhone/iPad:

Open up Safari and navigate to
At the bottom of the screen you'll see the "Share" button, an icon depicting an arrow that looks like it's trying to get away from a square. Tap it.
Tap "Add to Home Screen."
You'll be asked to choose a name for the homescreen icon. Keep it short and simple. "WineBusiness" works well.
From there, you can move the shortcut icon to any of your homescreens or folders.

On Android devices:

Open the browser and navigate to
Press the "Menu" button and select "Bookmarks."
There may be some bookmarks you didn't add, but don't panic--many Android devices come with a default collection of bookmarks. Select the top left thumbnail labeled 'Add".
You can customize the name of the bookmark if you like, before pressing "OK" to add it.
Press and hold on the Bookmark you just created, and select "Add Shortcut to Home." This will put a shortcut icon on the current homescreen that allows one-touch access to the page.
