Apple (iOS) and Android Save to Home

The address bar and the menu bar on Safari on iOS can chew up a lot of real estate, especially if you have a smaller screen like on the iPhone 5 or Nexus 5 phones. 

Until we release our native app for iOS and Android, this tip will allow you to have an App-like experience with Aerēz. 

Here we'll show you how to save the Aerēz Web-app to your home screen so that Aerēz looks more like an app.

For iOS

  1. Open up Safari and load
  2. At the bottom of the screen, you'll see an icon with an arrow painting away from a square. Tap that.
  3. Tap ADD to Home Screen
  4. Choose a name for the home screen icon

More Info

  • This will also work on your iPad and iPod Touch. The box and arrow icon is displayed next to the navigation buttons in Safari. 
  • You will be prompted to enter your username and password each time you open the app or switch out of the app and come back.
  • If you desire, you can save the username and password to make this step easier and you're not worried about the little ones getting on your device to make changes.

For Android

  1. Open Chrome and load
  2. Tap the menu button at the top right and select Add to homescreen
  3. The icon will appear on your home screen and you can move it around like you would any other app

More Info

  • Other Android browsers like Firefox for Android also offer this feature.
  • Aerēz will get its own entry in the app switcher
