How to Add Your Favourite Websites to Your Homescreen

A website like Man of Many is usually just a few taps away on your mobile device, but who has time for a few taps these days? Consider taking this nifty shortcut instead. As simple as tapping on an app, a website’s logo can appear as an icon on your home screen, and provides one-touch access to your magazine or blog of choice. And here you were thinking life couldn’t get any easier. We bet you feel really silly right now.

Imagine how great a little Man of Many icon might look on your home screen. Pretty sweet, if we do say so ourselves. Here’s how to make it happen:

On Your iPhone:

  1. Load on your smartphone browser (i.e. Safari).
  2. Locate the “Share” button on the bottom menu, and tap.
  3. Select the “Add to Home Screen” option.
  4. Edit the name as you see fit or just tap “Add.”
  5. Voila. The icon will load and appear on your home screen.

For Android:

  1. Load on your smartphone browser (i.e. Chrome).
  2. Locate the “Menu” icon in the upper-right corner–it usually appears as three little dots.
  3. Choose “Add to Home screen.”
  4. Click “Add” when the confirmation window appears.
  5. Voila. The icon will load and appear on your home screen.

Should you run out of room on your home screen, removing the icon is as easy as removing an app or bookmark. In other words, this little hack comes with no strings attached. It’s just a crafty way to streamline your favourite content with the greatest of modern ease. While on the subject, another way to access our daily content is to sign up for our newsletter here.
