Not sure if this will work too well yet - but as Apple have now given us the ability to capture our iPhone screens - why not post yours here?

Feel free to point out any icons/apps that you think might need a little explanation

Oh By the way - if you haven't seen/heard how to capture your screen you hold the Home button and then press the Sleep/Wake button. Your screen flashes and that's it; the image is saved in your Camera Roll.

Here's mine:



Home Screen 2 includes links to my carrier, a payments company and my Sky Router amongst other things.

Home Screen 3 lots of news, Hotmail and of course Mac-Forums.

This is probably old hat for some of you, but since I just got my iPhone, I'm still learning... how do you make a website into an icon that you can automatically go to (such as your Mac Forums icon)?

Just visit a website, touch on the PLUS sign and then on "add to homescreen", that's it.

Guys, how do you make a screen image?? I read "now that Apple has given us the ability to capture the homescreen", I didn't know this, how does it work?

Follow-up question: Is there a way to use an icon instead of screen shot for a website on your home screen? I.E. the mac-forums icon shows up on your screen shot above, but when I do that to a website, it just shows a little thumbnail screen shot of the website itself.

I think it depends on the website. Some websites provide an icon while others do not and it will simply use the screenshot of the webpage as the icon.

If you are trying this on your iPod Touch for the first time, you won't see the screenshot until you restart the photo app (hold down HOME for at least 5 seconds). At least that was true in my case.

Hi ...

I see the icon Webapps in your screen.

Just wanted to ask what is the difference between the Apps you find in the Appstore (via iTunes) and the ones in the Apple's Webapps page?

Webapps run directly off a webserver, so all you're really storing on your phone is a hyperlink to a website. Appstore apps are installed on and run right on the phone, though most still use the internet link for various functions.

Works with the touch, but you gotta restart the Photo app (hold down home button for ~10 seconds whilst in photo app) after you've taken the capture for the first time.
