You don't need a dedicated mobile app to add a website to the home screen of your iPhone or iPad.

Creating a bookmark on your home screen of your phone makes an easy to launch way of accessing the website, with the fell of an app experience.

It becomes a one touch portal where you will be taken directly to the website's URL.

How to create an app like button on your home screen.

  1. Launch Safari on your ‌iPhone‌ or ‌iPad‌.
  2. Navigate to the site that you want to create a Home screen shortcut to.
  3. Tap the Share icon (the square with an arrow pointing out of it) at the bottom of the screen.
  4. Scroll down to the list of actions and tap Add to Home Screen. (If you don't see the action, scroll to the bottom and tap Edit Actions, then tap Add next to the Add to ‌Home Screen‌ action. After that, you'll be able to select it from the Share area.)

Tap the 'Share' icon

Scroll down to Add to Home Screen
