Did you know your app is a progressive web app? One of the bonuses of progressive web apps is your users can install the app to their home screen. The progressive web app, or PWA, will then be available to the user from their apps page, just like any other app. Downloading your web app as a PWA grants a variety of benefits from better offline functionality to enhanced native device features.


So you've created your app and you want to have it downloaded to you device.

Too easy..


First use you internet browser on your device and navigate to your web apps URL.

This can be found by going to the My Apps menu and clicking the manage button on the app you want to download.







Android


For your android devices when you open the web app URL you will see a prompt appear at the bottom of the screen to add the app to your home screen.

Simple click add and the PWA will be added to your home screen.



iOS


For iOS devices you will not receive a prompt, you will need to use the menu in the browser to click the "Add to Home Screen" button.

It is worth noting that iOS does not currently carry the PWA icon to the home screen.
