    I have a web app that I installed some time ago on my home screen and I want to install it on another phone. Trouble is I've forgotten the details I used to get it there and I can't see an obvious way of finding them. It's working fine, I just want to replicate the settings on another phone.

    Go to the app store and download it to your other phone surely...or am I missing something?

    If its a web app it wont be on the app store i dont think. Whats the web app that is needed? I thought those sort of things were done by loading the web app page in safari then adding it as a bookmark to the home screen.

    Correct.
    Yes, that is how I originally added it but no longer have the URL that I added. The thing opens as a full screen app so there is no Safari URL line to look at.

    Whats the web app? Does googling the name of it not give you a URL to use?

    No, it's not a published app. It's something cobbled together by a small POS development outfit in Liverpool who I can't contact at the moment.
    I just didn't think it would be rocket science to work out what the iPhone thinks the address is so I can reproduce it on another phone.

    Sorry if I'm being a bit thick, but if you open your website "App" and swipe down then hit the arrow up box in Safari, won't it offer you the option of "add to homepage"? That should reveal the URL.
