I see there is a leaf as an icon for ATP bookmarks in a computer browser but I don't get a specific ATP favicon for my iPad browser's "Favorites". Other mobile browsers also use these for a kind of "speed dial" bookmark page. For ATP I just get a generic icon, which makes it a little harder to pick out of the other generic icons. I found this image on the web that shows what they typically look like - the blue ones on the left are the generic ones and I get a green one of those for ATP:

I read that sometimes these favicons can cause issues with web sites so maybe that's why we don't have one, but if that or something else is not the reason is it possible to create one, Dave?

I just now added those to the site so it should be showing up for you now. If not, please try refreshing the homepage, then remove the site from your Favorites and re-add it and see if it shows up then.

That's lovely, thank you! I did have to delete the generic one and re-add it. Looks great now. Hurray!

Great! Thanks for the suggestion. Sounds like this was a good improvement that'll benefit all ipad (and iphone, I suspect) users.
