ASHAsphere–There’s An App For That

Ok, there’s not really an ASHAsphere app–but here’s how you can create one for your iPhone or Android phone:

iPhone

  • In Safari, go to http://blog.asha.org
  • Tap the “add” icon (see arrow below)
  • Tap “Add to Home Screen”
  • Tap “Add”
  • Voila! You now have an ASHAsphere app! The icon isn’t very pretty, but it gets the job done.

Android

  • In the browser go to http://blog.asha.org
  • Tap “Menu”
  • Tap “Add Bookmark”
  • Tap “Done”
  • Close the browser and go back to home screen
  • Tap the + symbol
  • Tap “Shortcut”
  • Tap “Bookmark”
  • Tap the bookmark for ASHAsphere and drag to the screen

Note: I’m not positive that these Android directions work from any Android phone; I tested them on a Droid HTC. If you have a different Droid that requires different steps, we’d really appreciate it if you’d leave a comment indicating what phone you have and what you have to do differently.

We hope you

  1. Hi, Maggie,
    I tested this on my iPhone, and it worked great. However, the directions for Droid were a bit off (I tried it on my husband’s). The + symbol is specific to HTC phones only. You should replace this step with one that instead goes, “Press menu key, and then press add.” Also, it may be less confusing to say “press” or “select” rather than “tap,” because on some Android phones you may have to press a physical button, rather than tap the screen.

    It could look like this:

    In the browser go to http://blog.asha.org
    Press “Menu”
    Tap “Add Bookmark”
    Tap “Done”
    Close the browser and go back to home screen
    Press “Menu”
    Tap the “Add” or the + symbol
    Tap “Shortcut”
    Tap “Bookmark”
    Tap the bookmark for ASHAsphere (On some phones, hit OK, on some you may need to drag on screen)

    Hope this helps!

  2. That’s awesome–thanks so much, Chelsea, for taking the time to come back and post this comment! I figured there was a decent chance it didn’t work the same for all Android phones.
