Now Artisteer V4 allows export of Responsive mobile compatible templates I felt there was still something missing.</p>
Obviously they will eventually add this as an option like selecting your favourite icon .ico but for those who like me want everything yesterday, this may help.</p>
I have just added an iPhone app icon to my site. If a visitor wants to add a site to their Homescreen, they end up with a screenshot of your site.
If you follow this, you can add a nice icon to their screen:</p>

Make sure that your home page has the name of your site or whatever you want your visitors to see: Go to Menu Manager: Edit Menu Item. Go to Page Display Options and add the page title you want people to use.</p>

Download the Photoshop Action and template from here:</p></p>
I am still playing with this so if anyone can write some instructions that make sense I would be grateful!</p>

Once you have created your icon, upload it to your site. I put mine in the Images folder.</p>

Open your template index.php file in your favourite code editor and find the line (around line 73) that reads:</p>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="<?php echo $templateUrl; ?>/css/template.responsive.css" media="all">
Under this line add:</p>
 <link rel="apple-touch-icon" href="" />
Save your file and your'e done!</p>

Have fun
