Adding URL shortcut to mobile screen through a link on the website

Do you know if it's possible to add URL shortcut to mobile screen through a link on the website?

So the workflow will goes like :


  1. user clicks on a link on the website

  2. pop up box appears, ask user to name the short cut link

  3. user click on create and a shortcut been added to the mobile device's home screen with default icon.



I am interested in knowing whether this is possible for iphone and android devices. I've been searching for a while, but wasn't able to find any info on this...

Answer

This is currently not possible. You are only able to specify you icon to be added to the home screen, but not adding the shortcut directly by javascript.
