Android phones and tablets

  1. First open up https://www.bowdleflodes.com
  2. Tap on the menu button (the three dots).
  3. You will then see a menu that begins ‘New tab’.
  4. About three-quarters of the way down that menu you will see ‘Add to Home screen’. Click on that.
  5. You will then see the ‘Add to Home screen’ window and the chance to label the icon-to-be. If you have chosen the Bowdleflode home page, the text will read ‘Welcome to Bowdleflode World’.
  6. If you’re happy with that, then just tap ‘Add’, but if you want to shorten it, perhaps to just Bowdleflodes, then you can do that before you tap Add.
  7. Once you have tapped Add, you should briefly see a message saying ‘Bowdleflodes shortcut created’ (the exact message will depend on what you typed above) and then you will be returned to the web page.
  8. If you go back to your home screen, you should see the Bowdleflodes ‘B’!

iPad (all models)

  1. Open Safari and go to https://www.bowdleflodes.com.
  2. Tap on the Share button at the bottom of the screen or window. (If you’re not sure which one it is, it’s a folder with an ‘up’ arrow on it).
  3. This will bring up the iOS Share Sheet, over the top of the window.
  4. Select Add to Home Screen.
  5. The Add to Home interface should now be visible and the cursor should be blinking in the box where you need to type in Bowdleflodes (or whatever you want to call it). What you type in here’s important because whatever you type is what will be displayed underneath the icon on your home screen. When you’re finished typing, tap the Add button.
  6. You’ll then go back automatically to the home screen, which should now show the new Bowdleflodes icon!

iPhone 6S

A word of caution here before you start. Some iPhone users have had problems with this process because when they finish it, instead of taking them to the Bowdleflodes home page, their icon brings them back to this page. To stop that happening, you need to open a second tab in your browser and carry out the instructions below from that new tab. If you try and do it from this tab, then you will always come back here!
  1. First use your browser to go to https://www.bowdleflodes.com. NB. If you need to keep these instructions handy, then you need to open a new tab and do all this in the new tab.
  2. Tap on the bookmark icon which is the one with the outline folder and an arrow going up and then right.
  3. The bookmark will then appear and you will be given four choices: Add Bookmark, Add to Home Screen; Print or Cancel. Tap on ‘Add to Home Screen’.
  4. The screen will change and a white input box will appear where you can type in what you like, but we suggest you type ‘Bowdleflodes’. Then click on the ‘Add’ button.
  5. You should then be returned to the Home Screen and the Bowdleflodes icon should be on it!

  3. This will bring up the iOS Share Sheet.
  4. Select Add to Home Screen.

Troubleshooting

If you have gone through the correct process above for your device and you have gone to the home screen and you can’t see the Bowdleflodes’ ‘B’, then it is almost certainly there, but you just can’t see it. The most common reason for this is usually that your home page was full before you added the ‘B’ and you simply need to scroll to see it.

If this applies to you and you really want to see it on the very front of your home page, then please refer to the manual/instructions for your device to find out how to rearrange icons on your home page.
