It isn’t just apps you can put on your smartphone or tablet. Whatever your device, it’s a quick and easy process to add your favourite mobile friendly web sites to your home screen. So just like apps, they’re always to hand when you need them; no downloads taking up space, and they’re always bang up to date.
How to add MiQuando mobile web app to your home screen.
Using Chrome for Android
Navigate to m.miquando.com. Tap the menu button and then tap the “Add to homescreen” option. Give your shortcut a name, like “MiQuando”, and Chrome will then add this to your home screen.
The MiQuando icon will show on your home screen just like any app, so you can drag it around and move it to wherever you want. Chrome for Android loads the website as a “web app” when you tap the icon, so you won’t even get a browser interface, just a nice clean web app.
Most other Android and native browsers offer this feature, so you should be able to add the MiQuando web to your home screen in the same (or similar) way.
Safari on iPhone, iPad, & iPod Touch
Open your Safari browser from any recent Apple iOS device, and go to m.miquando.com. Tap the Share button on the browser’s toolbar (you’ll find it on the bar at the bottom for iPhone or iPod Touch, on the top for iPad), then tap the Add to Home Screen icon in the Share menu. Give your shortcut a name e.g. MiQuando and it will be added to your screen.
Just like a normal app, you can drag the icon around and place it anywhere you want, including in app folders. Tapping your MiQuando icon will load the MiQuando mobile website using the Safari browser app.
Internet Explorer on Windows Phone 8 / 8.1
Using IE on your Windows phone, you use the “Pin to Start” option to add items to your home screen as tiles. Open the Internet Explorer browser and go to m.miquando.com. Tap the More button and then tap Pin to Start in the menu as shown here.
Windows Phone 8 and 8.1 support live tile updates from websites that have configured the feature.
If you have another type of smartphone or tablet, it probably has this feature, too. Just open its browser and look in its menu for an option named something like “Add to home screen” or “Pin to home screen.”
To remove a website shortcut from your device’s home screen, just long-press the shortcut and remove it like you would any other app icon.
