Your iPhone, Android or Windows based smartphone or tablet’s home screen isn’t just for apps. Whatever platform you’re using, you can pin FATBMX to your home screen so you can quickly access the latest worldwide BMX news 24/7. Here's how.
Launch the Safari browser on Apple’s iOS and navigate to the home page of FATBMX.com. Tap the Share button on the browser’s toolbar — that’s the rectangle with an arrow pointing upward. It’s on the bar at the top of the screen on an iPad, and on the bar at the bottom of the screen on an iPhone or iPod Touch.
Tap the Add to Home Screen icon in the Share menu.The FATBMX shortcut will be added with a nice icon and can be dragged around and placed anywhere, including in app folders — just like a normal app icon. When you tap the icon, it will load the website in a normal tab inside the Safari browser app.
Other browsers, like Chrome for iOS, don’t offer this feature. Due the limitations in Apple’s iOS, only Apple’s own Safari browser is allowed to do this.
Launch Chrome for Android and and navigate to the home page of FATBMX.com. Tap the menu button and tap Add to homescreen.
You’ll be able to enter a name for the shortcut and then Chrome will add it to your home screen. Chrome for Android loads the website as a “web app” when you tap the icon, so it will get its own entry in the app switcher and won’t have any browser interface getting in the way.
Other popular Android browsers also offer this feature.
For example, Firefox for Android can do this if you tap the menu button, tap the Page option, and tap Add to Home Screen.
For other browsers, please check the documentation of your browser app.
Windows 10, 8, and RT devices also offer a way to pin websites to your Start screen. This is obviously most useful on phones and tablets, not on desktop PCs where you don’t want to see the Start screen. On the Windows desktop, you can pin website shortcuts to your taskbar for easier access.
