    Anyone here know how to code apps for Android?

    I figured there has got to be someone here that can do something.

    I need (what I think should be) a simple app that does the following:

    Automates the process of creating a specific bookmark and places the icon for it on the home screen or in the app drawer.

    I need a script or whatever you'd call it to


    1.Click on bookmark symbol and select "Add Bookmark". When done, click HOME symbol.
    2.From your home screen tap any blank area until the "Add To Home Screen" menu appears.
    3.Tap on Shortcut until the "Select Shortcut" menu appears.
    4.Tap on Bookmark until your list of bookmarks appear.
    5.Select this site. Our icon should appear on your home screen.

    I know when manually creating a bookmark from a site in the browser on the phone you have to be on the page you want to bookmark,., so what I want might be a challenge.
    Ideally I'd need the to be able to set the app to s specific bit.ly address for the site. There would be different sites.

    Anyone have the skills?
    Am I fantasizing?
    Can it be done?

    What's in it for you? Up for discussion once I can confirm it's possible.

    Appreciate anyone's input.

    Ok lots of views cool.

    Refined the idea just a bit.

    On the home page of a website, a link that runs the script processing the instructions above. The end result is the bookmark on the phone.
    Does that makes sense? No need to make it possible to add a web addr to the script prior to processing.

    I remember one thing I tried that made a crappy mobile version of the site in app form. Don't know if anything exists for this already though.
    Please check the forum and post there before PMing me. I have over 674 unread PMs due to the fact that they are issues which should have been addressed here.

    If you need to buy something from (Ebay), please use this LINK every time and support the forum!

    You can try the dev that made greenk45.

    I would do it but I'm computer-less for awhile.
