Android

  1. Launch the internet (Chrome browser) on your Android device

  3. Tap the Menu button on the browser’s toolbar – this looks like three dots in vertical row
  4. Tap the Add to Homescreen button
  5. Enter a name for the shortcut (e.g. The Church of Scotland).

iPhone and iPad

  1. Launch the internet (Safari browser) on your Apple device
  2. Load the Church of Scotland website
  3. Tap the Share button on the browser’s toolbar – this looks like a square box with an arrow pointing upward. (The toolbar is at the bottom of the screen on an iPhone and at the top of the screen on an iPad). The Share menu will appear.
  4. Tap Add to Homescreen in the menu. You may need to scroll along the menu until you find this option.

When you tap the Church of Scotland icon on your home screen, it will load the website in a normal tab inside the Safari browser app.
