Specific features for iOS support

UserEcho on iOS could benefit from two specific features:

1) When the user puts a UserEcho website to his Home screen, "as an app icon",
a specific tag in the HTML page can propose a nice icon instead of a mini-preview of the web site
=> why not propose the project favicon or maybe a reduced version of the project icon (both defined in the Settings) in this tag to get a nice icon:
<link rel="apple-touch-icon" href="/custom_icon.png"><br/>
2) When the user launches this community web site from the Home screen icon,
another specific tag can open it as fullscreen, which would be welcome too:
<meta name="apple-mobile-web-app-capable" content="yes"><br/>

I hope those two enhancements could be supported by UserEcho. Details are available on

We have added iOS tags, and provide default logo if it not set or community logo as icon.
Now you can add your community to the Home screen and it will run with fullscreen mode and will have a nice icon.

Seems that we need workaround to fix this issue, 
we found one of the solutions here https://github.com/mrmoses/jQuery.stayInWebApp

Will try to apply this or better solution soon.
