Remove add to home screen


Can you remove ‘add to home screen’ prompts when you open the app?


As far as I know that is a feature of your devices operating system.

Just curious as to why you would not want users to create short cuts to your app?

It’s annoying to users. If they want to add to home screen then they can, or if they don’t know how then we can create a simple help snippet to explain to them how to do it.

Loving the tool by the way :slight_smile:

Got it. Most people complain that it is too “hard” to show users how to add it to their devices home screen, but that would depend on your target audience I guess. I had to write a tutorial with pictures to show folks how to do it, but then again the user base for that app was senior citizens, not all that savvy with mobile devices.

Is there any customisation options for this prompt? It obscures the tabs on Android, meaning users won’t be aware of the other tabs unless they act to either add to homescreen or dismiss the prompt.

I do not think it is useful to delete this option. Because it is an alternative installation mode of the application

I am also interested in removing the prompt. Thanks.

Having now seen users actually downloading the app and then installing on their home screen I am now a fan of having the prompt, I wasn’t before. It also encouraged them to open the app when it forms part of their home screen on the phone.
