How To Display The Actual Website Icons For Safari Bookmarks

If have already jailbroken your device with Pangu you can use a new Cydia release called BookmarksIcons to display the actual website icons for Safari bookmarks in iOS 9.3.3. As you may know that most modern desktop web browsers show the actual website icon when you bookmark a web page, and the Safari for iOS doesn't have this feature. With BookmarksIcons, you can more easily see what webpage is what without really having to read the website names from your app’s Bookmarks list.

How To Show The Actual Website Icons For Safari Bookmarks On iOS 9.3.3 iPhone

To make your device display the actual website icons for Safari bookmarks in iOS 9.3.3 head to Cydia’s BigBoss repository and download BookmarksIcons tweak for $0.99.

Once the tweak is installed, it adds a preferences pane to the Settings app where you can make some configurations. The BookmarksIcons takes the website image and shrinks it down into a scalable icon that is displayed in your Bookmarks menu from the Safari app. Once they’re applied, they stay there for every time you launch the Safari on your jailbroken device to use a Bookmark.

Sometimes, it can happen that some of your Bookmarks won’t have an icon. To fix it just tap at the Update Icons button that you will find at the bottom left side of the Bookmarks menu. The update will check the current bookmarks to save and update icons for the websites you have Bookmarked. As the downloading, importing and updating takes place, you can pick to cancel the progress or hide to have it run in the background.

From the tweak's preference pane you can play with the icon borders by enabling or disabling them. You may have to clear the icon cache every other time to remove bugs. 
BookmarksIcons is a great tweak that help you to quickly recognize what you’re looking for.
