How it Works
The message appears after 2 seconds (customizable) from page load, and is destroyed after 20 seconds (also customizable). The balloon enters and exits the screen with a quick configurable animation: drop from top, bubble from bottom or fade in/out.
The balloon can be dismissed any time by tapping the small “x” icon. The script also checks the user locale and shows the message in an appropriate language.

**Custom Startup images **
Often call also splash screen: the splash screen is a rectangular or full screen image which appears while a software product is loading (OS, CAD, game, etc). Often it contains a progress bar, indicating the loading phases.
Specifying a startup image is available in iOS 3.0 and later. On iOS, similar to native applications, you can specify a startup image that is displayed while your website application launches. This is especially useful when your web application is offline. By default, a screenshot of the web application the last time it was launched is used.

✓ You can provide up to 7 startup images!
✓ If images are not of the corrected size, the image will be scale automatically up or down by CedAdd2Home. It is recommended is to provide the correct size for best result

Custom icon to springboard
You may want users to be able to add your web application or webpage link to the Home screen. These links, represented by an icon, are called Web Clips.

✓ You can provide up to 7 custom icons for all iPhone, iPad being retina, mini running iOS7/8+ or still running under iOS6!
✓ If images are not of the corrected size, the image will be scale automatically up or down by CedAdd2Home. It is recommended is to provide the correct size for best result

Custom Messages
It is possible to override the default message to invite user to add your site to their home screen.

Windows 8.1 tiles

★ premium version only

With Internet Explorer, users can put their favorite Web sites right beside their favorite apps by pinning them to the Windows and Windows Phone Start Screens.
Pinning Web sites from IE gives users immediate access to these sites from the Start Screen without having to navigate to them repeatedly.

When users pin your site, they have indicated that they are frequent visitors of your site and care about updates from it. With that in mind, Internet Explorer now brings you Live Tiles for Web sites, allowing you to keep your users connected to your Web site outside of the browser.

With Live Tiles, you can engage with your users by bringing fresh content such as breaking news, new message alerts or titles of new blog posts right to their Start Screen. Furthermore, you can support multiple tile sizes for your Web site, allowing users to display your site prominently as wide or large tiles.

Windows Desktop and Windows Mobile are also supported by CedAdd2Home

Notifications / Live Tile to your website
Live Tiles for Web sites are powered by Periodic Notifications, wherein the platform pulls text and images from polling uris hosted on a server at a predefined polling interval, and displays this content on the Web site’s tile.

With Windows 8.1, pinned site tiles can notify a user outside Internet Explorer 11 and pull them right back in! If you have a web feed, you can automatically build notifications into your tile. Who said RSS was dead? If you don't have one, skip this step. You can choose to implement custom tile notifications later.

The polling uris defined in this example contain the contents of the notification to be displayed and will be polled every half an hour. Therefore in a given 30 minute interval, a user can see up to 5 updates from this site, keeping your user intimately connected with your Web site at all times.

You can use 1 to 5 URL to your RSS feed in CedAdd2Home.

Windows 7

★ premium version only
Your site feels more like a native app in Internet Explorer 9 through pinning. Discover a new way to get more results from your Windows 7 users on the web, reaching nearly 35% in the USA and over 21% worldwide.

Test it by dragging your site tab to the Windows 7 taskbar when CedAdd2Home premium is installed.

hi-res favicon support
Your site's logo lights-up on the Windows taskbar when it’s high-resolution. When users pin your site, they become your most loyal customers. Give them a one-click experience that brings them back again and again.

Jump List
Your site is more than a home page. You have great content but users don’t always get to it. Inspire them to go deeper with Jump Lists. There are two types:
Static Jump List: Use these to promote the most common places you want your users to go
Dynamic Jump List: Use these to get creative, pulling your users in with the latest articles, personalized deals, or trending topics

Notifications
How do you catch user attention when they’re not actively browsing your site? Pull them with a timely notification. Use an icon overlay when new content is available or flash the taskbar to show when user action is requested just like an app.

Android

The message appears after 2 seconds (customizable) from page load, and is destroyed after 20 seconds (also customizable). The balloon enters and exits the screen with a quick configurable animation: drop from top, bubble from bottom or fade in/out.

Need to be updated



Posted on 28 October 2013
Works but need more upgrade. Now there are many model and screen size of Apple products. So this needs to be working on all devices.
I have used this plugin for a while now and absolutely love it, as do my clients I set it up for. As for "rwickham" complaint... "Do you really install a new plugin on all your 50 websites before testing it???" The switch out of the images is super easy. Just unzip the Plugin folder switch out the images in the images folder with your Favicon and Mobile Icons. Also change out the Screen start up images "Great place to have an Advertisement... Say Whaaaa..." Re Zip the file and upload to your website. I customize all the images for each individual website. Kudos to the developer!

Perfect!



Posted on 26 March 2013
fantastic. Works like a charm. My site was already configured to work on an iPhone, so I didn't need to use their sizing options, but it was GREAT to know that they're available. I'll be using this on all my joomla sites for sure!

Great plugin!



Posted on 04 August 2012
If you are wanting to add a iOS specific version of your site this plugn is a must-have. I combined this with the taptheme mobile templates ad togather they let you make apps that look like native iOS apps.



I used this on my webshop and i no longer need a iOS standalone app to show my catalog!

useless



Posted on 24 July 2012
Nice idea, but the message "add to home" pops up EVERYTIME when a user view an article and navigate through the mobile-site. The option "expire in min" takes no effect. So you'll get a popup with every article. That's why this plugin is useless. Sorry.
Owner's reply: In version 1.6.5 this bug has been corrected and the default value of returning visitor (Show the message only to returning visitors (ie: don't show it the first time)) is now set to true as default
I really like this app. It's simple and works great. But then it replaced my custom icon with a picture of the developers face! Really? His face? What's wrong with the icon I already had? Or even a cool logo? OK, so I can change it in the plugin config, but a really nice app just got really annoying for the 50 sites I maintain.
Owner's reply: The favicon.ico you use on every internet site is standardized to size of 16 x 16 pixels

this plugin need
ipad 72 x 72
ipod 57 x 57
retina 114 x 114 pixels

What should I default to? increase your favicon.ico as default? (it may look ugly). Feel free to ask for this features in my support forums
This Does Exactly What it Says. The Icons are easy to set and they show up nicely on the devices.



I like the addition of the customizable start up screen. Now I need an add on to let me save the site menus and select content on the device for off line viewing. Thats beyond the scope of this plugin but it doesntseem far off after installing this.

Perfect!

Add2Home works perfect for me.

Installed in a few minutes, very comfortable to adjust Animations, Icons and Startuppics.

Nice, but...

For a free app. This is great, and the developer deserves big kudos for sharing it. If you have a mobile friendly template, this can be one element to take the place of a paid system like weaver.

However, I can't give it 5 stars because

support is cumbersome. Maybe it's because it's new? At the time of this writing, it's not immediately clear that the support forum on the link above supports this product. I searched the forum for add2home and found nothing. So I decided to register, it has over the top hoops to jump through, hyper strong password requirement + captcha + 3 security questions + email verification + wait for ? to get admin approval.

That said, without support I got it to work and with the provided documentation customized the images and logos etc. It looks great when it's done. But I can't see if there is a way to keep it from popping up when the user already has it on their device. There is a setting to only show up for returning visitors. For my purpose, it would be best to show up only for first time visitors. But this is not a selectable option. Also, I could not see if there is a way to have it only show up when the visitor opens a specific page or pages, right now it pops up at every page load.

Great mobile plugin

I was hoping something like this would come along for a long time. Great work! I've tested it on my iPod Touch and it works as promised.
