Description

Add any website to your homescreen as a web clip (PWA) with your own custom icon by generating a dummy profile with the web clip embedded.

To use, run the shortcut and follow the user prompts/ inputs.

Saving the generated profile allows you to share the profile with the embedded web clip to other devices.

Complete Rewrite

This shortcut now creates a dummy profile that is packaged with a web clip made by user inputs. This web clip acts as a home screen shortcut to a website and behaves as a progressive web app (full screen, opens links within web clip, etc.). This ensures the chosen icon will never change and always work.
