New Feature for Quick Mobile Access to JHO in the field or at home


You can now add Jesse's Hunting and Outdoors Forum to your Home Screen for quick direct access (no need to load a breowser). This may be especially welcome to those who like Tapatalk.

It is not fully supported yet in all browsers or operating systems. Those marked as green fully support it. Those in Lime green have partial support.

For most Android users, this will be automatic. Open the forum in Chrome or whatever the "Android browser" is, and you should see a popup offering to add it to the home screen.

If not, here are the manual instructions:

Just click on Settings and find Add to Home Screen and the icon will magically appear.


To use this feature om iPhone, you need one of the recent iOS upgrades, at least version 11.3.

I was able to test it on an iPhone 8 Plus with iOS version 12.4.1. It worked in Safari for me; not in Chrome, Firefox, or Edge yet. Also tested on an older iPad with iOS version 12.4.1 with the same results.

Start by loading the forum in Safari.

Then click the arrow at the bottom (circled above).

Then tap Add to Home Screen.

Here's what it looks like when installed:

And tapping that icon loads the forum immediately:

No browser need (or at least you don't have to open a browser first). :)
