How to install a BookBrowse icon to your iPad Home Screen

BookBrowse on the iPad

The iPad's Safari browser makes it easy to add an icon on your Home Screen that will automatically open to BookBrowse. This tutorial shows you how to create this icon in a few easy steps.

First, open your Safari browser by tapping on the Safari icon.



Navigate to www.bookbrowse.com. Once the page has finished loading, tap on the Share button at the top of your screen (circled in the example below):



Safari's Share menu should now be displayed on top of your Safari browser window. Typically you will see a number of icons, one of which is the Bookbrowse Logo, with the words "Add to Home Screen". Select this.



The Safari "Add to Home" window will now appear; this enables you to change the name of the app, which will be displayed under the icon when you are finished – we suggest you change this to BookBrowse.

Once you have changed the name, simply tap the Add button. You are done! You should now be taken to your iPad's Home Screen, where you will see that the link to BookBrowse has been created.
