Though you can't download a Web App like you can download a native app, you can easily save a shortcut to your device's home screen. It will look just like any native app on your home screen, though it's technically only a bookmarked website.
Follow through this article for guidelines in saving a shortcut as well as ways to view your web app.
Please make sure you have reviewed the Web Apps Overview article in full before reading below.
Visiting Your Web App
There are a few ways you can access your Web App after publishing:
If you added the mobile redirect script to the front-end website, you could visit the front-end site through your mobile device's browser to test out the automatic redirect. You should be taken right to the Web App instead of the full site.
You can scan your Web App QR code using a QR scanner app to be taken to the Web App.
You can type the full Web App URL into your phone's browser.
Our modern Web App supports the majority of our features and layout options, though some tabs and native options (like call, camera, voice recording, etc.) are unavailable. You'll notice some fun effects that aren't available in our native apps too.
