The description of Website Shortcut

Personalize your Android homescreen by creating your own icon shortcuts for websites. Customize your website shortcuts with your own selected text and image. Furthermore, there are no advertisements and it’s free. I made it originally for myself, and decided to share. Giving a fair rating is very well appreciated!

Many applications have made the switch from native applications to a single mobile-friendly website. Although this is a positive development, it means that you can only open them conveniently via bookmarks. This requires two taps in the best case, while a shortcut on your homescreen requires only a single tap! It is especially convenient and time-saving for often visited websites.

From Android Oreo on (due to an API change, on which this app is built upon), the bottom right tiny icon of the app the shortcut belongs to is added automatically by the launcher.
