Hi Monique,

In the browser, to the left of the box where you type in URLs, there is an icon that is a box with an arrow coming out of it. If you click that icon, it will give several choices, including "Add to Home Screen." That's the one you want.

Hope that helps.
Richard Hamilton

And I’ve successfully opened (from within Dropbox) the ZIP in iZIP and extracted all the files. The result is that within iZIP I can now successfully click the extracted index.html file, and things look surprisingly good. (I say “surprisingly” because no attempt was made when I created this DoxyS-authored API Reference to have the results viewable on mobile devices.)
