    How can I change the default icon of the iOS homescreen link?

    Asked by risboro on March 22, 2015 at 07:49 PM

    How can I open a form with iOS (Safari) and then share 'add to homescreen' in a way that the resulting icon does not show the standard jotform icon, but rather a customer icon.


    I believe this worked with a form some months ago and the icon was derived from the first image of the form.

    Are you referring to this widget http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/add_to_home_screen, that let's you add your form a shortcut to your home screen on iOS. Unfortunately, using that widget it doesn't allow you to use a custom icon.

    But, you can try this workaround, you can use this app on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/app-icons-free-cool-icon-themes/id749073889?mt=8.

    This will allow you to change the icon in your iOS devices. The only downside is you cannot publish the same to your end-users.

    I hope this helps.

    Kind regards.
