Shortcut To URL

Shortcut To URL


This app supports creating a shortcut to the URL.
It can create a shortcut without using a bookmark from default browser.
Also this app can receive a text that includes URLs.

How to use:
1. Opens the website which wants to create shortcut by a default browser.
2. Opens this app from Menu→More→Share page→Share via→"Shortcut To URL". URL will be filled automatically.

Specifications and Limitations:
* Any protocol will be accepted.
* Creation of shortcut may fail when center of the home screen doesn't have any space.
