# Nexus 7 ignores apple-touch-icon

1. Go to any website that has:

<link rel="apple-touch-icon" href="/apple-touch-icon.png" />


For example: bbc.co.uk, starbucks.com, or play.com.

2. Create a bookmark from the browsers.

3. Go to Bookmarks, and Add to Homescreen.

On other Android devices, the icon that appears on your homescreen will be the icon specified in one of the two tags above. On my Nexus 7 though, it always uses a bookmark icon with the site's favicon in the middle. I know the icons are working, because if you go into Chrome => Bookmarks, it shows the bookmarks with the apple-touch-icon there, just not on the homescreen.

Did this change in Jellybean? Is it a bug, or intentional for some reason? I can't find any mention of this behavior anywhere online.

• I know this isn't gonna help but it would probably work if it's something like <link rel="google-touch-icon" href="/google-touch-icon.png" />. Nah, just kidding. – Propeller Sep 16 '12 at 15:35
• Not Nexus 7 specific. The changed the behaviour with "apple touch icons" in JellyBean. Doesn't work on my Galaxy Nexus either. – Leandros Sep 21 '12 at 14:27
