For Lisas who cant get it to work and gave this app 2 stars This is a wonderful app. Actually it doesn't work on holding the blank area, on some mobiles like mine. But it does work. Steps - 1> Go to Your Application Menu, (Where all the icons of your downloaded apps are present.) 2> Select the option for widgets. Or just keep scrolling until you find them. 3> Pick "Url Shortcut". Press your finger on it and drag it down to your home screen. 4> Fill the information and click ok. It works. Giving it 4.5 stars for missing this info from the description.
Simple, functional, recommended [SGS4] A great little utility (only 9kb!) that delivers what it promises, nothing more, nothing less. I don't like Chrome & this is a simple URL shortcut widget that doesn't require a Chrome bookmark & lauches pages in your browser of choice. Found the URL Shortcut widget listed among device widgets, added it to home screen, pasted a URL. Done. Don't let the developer's immaturity keep you away from a great little app.
Good app. It works as intended. I probably enjoyed reading the description more than I will ever enjoy using the app, but I enjoy using the app as well. My only criticism is that the instructions in the description really should be a bit better organized to assist people like Lisa. On my S3, the app is accessed by going to Apps --> widgets --> URL shortcut, and dragging that widget back to the home screen.
Life saver! My Note 2 used to have a widget that let me place single tile bookmarks to my screen. It disappeared a few months ago. I used it to put each manga I was reading into a folder on my screen & there wasn't another way to. I finally found this after trying tons of those dropbox bookmark apps, thank you so much! It works great, & to anyone not reading the description on how to use it, you shouldn't be allowed to have smart phone if you're really that dumb. Lol, the description is another reason to rate 5 stars!
Love the app! Works exactly as expected! LOVE your description too! It's unfortunate how many IDIOTS there are out there leaving bad reviews because they are stupid or can't take 1 minute to read the description. Here is a 5 star to help offset those 1 star reviews.
Good stuff. But then I noticed that I can create shortcuts that still work after I delete them with the stock note 2 browser. So, not so useful there. Works great on my nook hd, though!
