You Can Now Save a Website to Your Home Screen on the Fire TV

Ever wish you could save a website to your home screen on the Fire TV? With the new Bookmarker app made by AFTVnews, you can do just that.

Now that the Fire TV has a dedicated browser—the new Silk Browser—you can surf the web with your Fire TV. If you add the Bookmarker app, you can save a website to your home screen and launch it with one click (maybe a website such as YouTube after Amazon drops Fire TV support in January 2018…).

When you launch the Bookmarker app, you will be able to enter a website and hit save. After you do that a new icon will show up in your app list on the Fire TV. Now if you click on that new app it will launch the Silk Browser and load the website you entered.

You will need the Silk Browser installed for this to work correctly, but it is a free app you can find in the Amazon app store.

Currently, you are limited to nine bookmarks on your home screen and you will need to install a different app for each app you want.

You can find the Bookmarker app on Amazon HERE.

    This is not something new (Maybe new to the FTV). I can do this with my old Logitech GoogleTV device. Granted, I don’t use it much now since the old Chrome browser doesn’t support many current Flash websites but this feature was real useful back when it was my primary streaming device.

    Love the bookmarker app. Downloaded bookmarker1 and set up for youtube. Downloaded bookmarker2 and set it up for titantv. There are bookmarker apps going up to bookmarker9. Would be nice if there was a dropdown inside of one app so it didn’t clutter the screen, but for what it does, I can sure live with it. Great app! (◑‿◐)
