    Is there any way for quickly adding shortcuts in the android home screen?

    I am fed up of navigating to a particular option by tapping on multiple options. Is there any way so that I can add shortcuts with ease on the home screen of my android device? Please explain in detail if possible.

    yes, you can easily place an application shortcut or a widget on the home screen by
    simply pressing anywhere (and hold for 1 second) on the screen. But what if you want
    to place a shortcut to a feature within an app, like the Adding new task section in Astrid,
    a specific bookmark for your Dolphin browser, or just the “Manage Application” page where
    you can view and uninstall your apps. For do this task easily some apps are also available.
    Launcher Pro is one of the best application for this. To use this application follow the
    following steps.

    1. Install Launcher Pro from the market.
    2. Press on the home screen
    3. Then press on Shortcut
    4. Then in new pop up press on Activities
    5. Now go to the Settings
    6. Now you can see the shortcut on your on your home screen.

    My dear friend it is a very easy process of adding the shortcuts for specific apps direct on the home screen of your phone.I will tell you how,
    1.First go to the home screen of your phone and then tap on the "Application Drawer" that is already there.
    2.Then go to the app whose shortcut you want to add on the homescreen.
    3.Then give a long tap on it.
    4.After that you should drag that icon to the homescreen and then just leave it there.
    That's it and the shortcut will be added to the homescreen of your phone.
    Good luck!!!

    You can add the apps shortcuts very easily to the android home screen
    • Long press on the empty space that available
    • Then select the app option
    • Then select the app from the list and tap on it
    • Now you can see the app on the home screen
    • If you want to add a short cut then tap on the shortcut option
    • Then the list will appear then select the one which you want to place on the home screen
    • Then tap on it
    • This will add to the home screen
    If your android mobile does not have short cut option it you can use the apps for this.
    The app like LauncherPro is having the feature that allows you to add Activity shortcut to the home screen.
