    Ok I dont program in android/java ...

    I write simple HTML ...

    My need ... I have created an HTML page of links and I want to be able to place it on the desktop as a shortcut so when it is clicked it will open the page in the browser ...

    I can open ASTRO then open the file in the html viewer ... but that is to many clicks and means searching the sd for the file each time ...

    If I cant do it as a shortcut .... could I talk someone into including the html into a apk wrapper as an app... I don't want to charge for it. I would like to provide it as a free app ... or at least no more than $0.99

    The HTML consists of 100+ links which represent every Metro train station in the Washington DC metro system and provides live updates of real-time train arrival/departures for each station...

    I have tried to open the file as a saved bookmark (i.e. file://sdcard/Metro_Train_Arrivals.htm) but google browser gives me web page not available
