Change geolocation preference on apps generated from "add to homescreen" from browser?

Posted

Geolocation access is now denied on any web app generated from "Add to homescreen" bookmarking from the browser. Web apps like Google Map worked fine and I used to be able to get my current location but after a geolocation preference prompt came up out of nowhere and I accidentally clicked "deny", now geolocation access is denied for full screen web apps saved to home screen. If I run the same page on the browser it's still fine.

I would like to know if there's a way to reset that preference options. Thanks.

I did but turned out I accidentally turned off geolocation for "Settings" the app under App permissions which effectively turning it off for all those "add to homescreen" web apps.

Thanks for the suggestions anyway. By the way , I just came across this site m.scout.me, which provides free html5 turn-by-turn voice guided navigation. That's why I wanted to fix this issue so I could use this web app in full screen mode.
