I have created a mobile web application, everything works great, but what I have found that end users are doing is creating a shortcut on their iPhone home screen, they will click on the short cut which launches the web application as expected, but when they select an item from the menu, the window that they initially launched the application in is redirected to safari rather than staying in the initial browser that it was launched from the homescreen in.

Is it possible to 1. either keep them in the browser that is launched when navigating to homescreen or 2. have safari launched everytime they click the shortcut on the homescreen.  

Goal is to have seemless user experience with no browser/window redirects.

Hi, 


I expect that its based on the default web browser on the device. If that is the case, I am not sure what your options are. Trying getting a device that is having the issue and set the default browser. See if that fixes it.

Thank you for the suggestion Stacey, the issue is on every iPhone that saves a link to our application as a shortcut on the home screen.  Unfortunately there is not a way to set the default browser on the iPhone as you suggested.

I was able to resolve my issue by setting the method property from Navigate to Ajax Submit, now the user experience is seemless on mobile device.
