Home Page in Safari is a new jailbreak application that lets you set a home page in Mobile Safari, simply by tapping the ” + ” button while visiting the website of your choice, then tapping “set as home”.

This is a very simple and convenient tweak that seems to be more useful on the iPad than it really is on the iPhone, as Mark from 9 to 5 Mac noted

Home Page in Safari is available from Cydia for $0.99. It is compatible with the iPhone, iPod Touch and the iPad.

Have you tried it? How do you like it?

    I was just thinking about this the other day. Awesome. Can wait to try it out.

    I use Atomic Web Browser, which I’ve put on iPad and iPhone—allows you to set homepage and many other useful features, for the same price.

  • i suggested this to chpwn a few days ago, wonder if this is his release lol

    • No it’s from Will Strafach (@cdevwill)

    This works pretty good … I have this page as my home page on my iphone 4 since I visit this blog everyday .

    Ok, now that’s getting a little ridiculous! Why charge for tweaks that have been implemented in other browsers free of charge.

    Try out Opera. It’s a free browser available on AppStore that, in my opinion, puts safari to shame. There is only one reason for me to use safari – Safari Download Manager, which I can’t figure out how to make it work with other bowsers. Apart from that Safari is gay, and JB apps/tweaks developers are becoming greedy.

        @Will I have to stop what? Expressing my opinion? Why not be a little more useful and point in the right direction, like @Ryan tried to. Thanks Ryan, I sure have that source and many more others that are way more magical than xsellize.

    How do I find it in cydia ??

  • Okay I looked for it on Cydia, but no luck, is there a special repo?

  • Nvrmind Got it

  • Pat

    I installed this app and set my
    home page but when I open safari it never goes to the home page. It just opens on the last site I was on. Any ideas on how to make it work?

    • Pat,

      That’s the way it’s supposed to work. If however you open a new page in Safari, it will go to your new homepage. But by default, it will go to the last page opened.


    • Z

      That’s part of the backgrounding feature. If you close all open pages in safari and quit it, next time you open it, the home page should load.
