Adding LibGuides to the iPhone Home Screen

Thanks to a recent software update from Mr. Jobs and the rest of the brilliant minds at Apple, iPhone users are now able to add custom icons to their homescreen.  To add a nice and shiny LibGuides icon to your nice and shiny iPhone, follow these simple steps:

1) Open up your Safari browser on the iPhone and browse to your LibGuides website, for example

2) Tap the plus (+) icon towards the bottom of the Safari window and then the “Add to Home Screen” button when prompted.

3) Enter a name for your new icon – we suggest “LibGuides” because its the right length – and tap the “Add” button at the top-right of the screen.

When you return to your Home Screen you will see a LibGuides icon, that when tapped, takes you directly to your LibGuides site!  Enjoy!
