All of us visit some websites more frequently than others. The best example is local news sites. We all read news on our own language mostly through the apps. Some local sites may not have an app or you don’t like to read content through the app. Generally it is difficult to stuff all content feed in an app and is necessary to visit the website to get relevant details. In such case, every time you need to open Safari and browse the site either by opening the URL or through favorites. Apple offers an easy way to save time by adding the webpage shortcut in home screen and directly open the page.
