Add a web link as an application

You can provide a shortcut to a particular web page address by adding up to ten web links to the application icons screen. When the user clicks a web link icon, the browser opens and displays the specified web page.

Only BlackBerry® devices running BlackBerry Device Software version 4.5 or higher support this feature. If a user loads a theme using web links on a device running an earlier version of the BlackBerry Device Software , the BlackBerry device ignores it and does not display it on the application icons screen.

  1. Click the Application Icons button at the left of the Inspector pane.
  2. Open the Web Links section of the Application Icons screen Inspector.
  3. Select Add Web Link.
  4. In the Name field, type a name for the application. This name appears on the application icons screen, prepended with the phrase “Web Link:”.
  5. In the Address field, type the web page address to display in the browser when the user clicks the application icon.
  6. Click OK.
