Home Button

By Florence Lüthi

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Create a button with photo for your favourite contacts directly on your home screen. With one fingertip you can call your family, friend or colleague or chat with them.

With Home Button you can create direct call or message icons with a picture of your contact directly on your home screen. Create your own photo favorites page.

Home Button lets you create many different type of buttons: direct call buttons, text message buttons, email buttons, buttons for Whatsapp, FaceTime, Skype or other URL schemes.

If you have already pictures assigned to your contacts, you can take the pictures for the icons from the address book. Or you can import the photo from your library or directly take a new one with the camera. The pictures can be pinched (zoomed), rotated and moved to select the part you want to use for your icon.

Once the icons are created on your home screen you can of course always move and delete them again like any other app icon.

- Buttons for calls, Whatsapp and SMS messages, e-Mail, Skype or URL
- Photo selectable from address book, camera or photo library
- Move, rotate or pinch the photo
