Have Note 4 phone. To come here I touch the google button and it usually comes up with lists of lastest trys and such. I click on the GT one and then again to get here. I really want just a symbol on my home page to click on instead. Is there an APP or such for that?  How do I find. OR, if no ap, how does one make his own if possible?  Right now the darn google won't do much of anything, so not sure if my settings or what is going on. Just need an icon or whatever they are called to go to here. Keep it simple, not real puter sharp!

Assuming you're using Chrome as the web browser on your phone, you just go to the forum webpage as you normally do, then press the three dots in the upper right hand corner (if you don't see the dots, just act like you're pulling the page down and the top bar will come down showing the address of the page you're on with the three dots on the right.)  The dots open a menu and one of the options will be "add to homescreen."  Select that and it will open a window where you change the name of the icon.  Name it whatever and then press the "add" button and it will create a little tractor icon at the first available spot on your homescreen.  You can then move it where ever you want by holding it and then dragging it where you want it.

ON firefox if you touch and hold the address bar it gives you the option to add to homescreen. Simple.

well, did that, twice actually. No tractor tho, just the words. It works tho, thanks! Have to correct myself on the tractor pix. Yes, they are on there, just that I have dark background with pictures in dark areas and wasn't showing up at first. I see it now. Maybe white or grey or RED would be better choice?  Thanks.

Here's a screen shot of my phone. You can see the GTTalk icon on the right side. It's just a Chrome shortcut.
