USCCA Community App

Ok that’s what I get, but on the desktop its a link to the browser tab in chrome.

I’ve talked to the team who is far more technologically inclined than I am, they were wondering if you created a separate “app” from your web browser?

Evidently some phones allow you to take a web page and create a shortcut/app appearance from them. That was news to me! (I have to see if it can be done on iPhones.)

From a tech person: In Chrome, if you click the three dots in the upper right hand corner and “add to home screen” it creates an app-like appearance and an app badge.

You can do that from Safari on an iPhone!

We’ve done it here on both apple and android and it gives the app downloaded line as well, but it’s really not. :confused:

Maybe instead of creating a whole new Community app from scratch…connect the website into Tapatalk app.

Great idea. I have Tapatalk. I actually looked for it there first.

This is more of a link on our home screen that takes you right to the Community in your browser :smiley:

Oh that’s good! I already set short cuts.

If someone is using chrome on mobile, just click the 3 dots in the right upper corner. Then click “add to home screen”
