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.
I just love you. Really. I do. As a non reformed bookmark junkie, with a distaste for chrome, I have FINALLY found my true love! Oh URL shortcut, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways! Anyone who can read, (looking at you Lisa) can figure out the super simple principles of this indulgent app. Yes, like sweet & savory salted caramel, the perfect combination of brilliance & ease. Run with me now dear URL shortcut, into the hills & lie with me in the sun bathed Meadows of your simple perfection, where we will be together, forever!
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!
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!
