NEW 2019 UPDATE !!! The Add to home screen WP Plugin now supports the latest versions of WordPress, and its use with the main Progressive Web App (PWA) extensions is highly recommended ! You can now use a PWA WordPress plugin, like SuperPWA for instance, to turn your WordPress blog into a kind of native mobile app, without the constraints of native mobile app (store submission, costs, etc…). With PWA coupled with Add to home screen WP Plugin, you will be able to display the legendary floating balloon that invites your visitors to add your blog to their iOs device, and then your blog will load as a PWA. This combination is the best way to increase visitor loyalty, without being obliged to upload a costly native mobile app into App Store and Play Store. This plugin uses Add to home screen’s Cubiq script to place a floating balloon inviting the user to add a website to their home screen as a standard iOs application. It’s a good way to retain visitors coming to your blog, especially if you don’t want to develop an expensive application just to let them read articles of your WordPress blog. The floating balloon is compatible with iPhone/iPod touch, iPhone 5, iPhone 6, iPhone 7, iPhone 8, iPhone X, iPhone XR and iPad. Demo See...
