Your Smartphone & Tablet Home Screen IS NOT JUST FOR APPS!

Allow mobile visitors to view your website with just ONE CLICK from their Smartphone and Tablets Home Screen!

Whichever operating system (i.e. Android, IOS or Windows) is running your Smartphone or Tablet, mobile users can add a mobile website page to their Home Screen so that they can quickly reference it again with just ONE CLICK!

The problem is that some websites do not include a customized Icon and a 14 character name to be used by the Home Screen. This Icon should work just like the Icon that every APP uses.

Take a look at the Logo (6 faces) at the top of this page and the Icon on the Home Screen of the Smartphone pictured above. They are the same!

🚩 Although the Add to Home Screen mobile accessibility feature is available on all mobile devices, it is dependent on the mobile web browser provided by IOS Safari or Android Chrome operating system!
