iPad App Tip: How to Set a Home Page in the Safari Browser

A reader recently asked “How do you set your Home Page on an iPad when Safari first opens?”

Easiest way to do that is to create a homepage web clip. Navigate to the page in Safari you want to use as your home page, then make a web clip (add to homescreen). Tap that icon to start Safari instead of the Safari icon. For more on creating web clips, see this tutorial.
