    We are phasing out the site app in favor of a mobile site version, which is the default site version when visiting from a phone or iPod.

    To add a link to your phone or iPod homescreen so that the mobile site can be launched like an app, follow the directions below.

    For Android phones:

    1) Visit SeriousCompacts.com in your browser (I am using Chrome here) and tap on the menu button. Mine is circled in red; yours may look slightly different in a different browser / phone.

    2. Tap on "Add to homescreen"

    14298414208_6d794bc33f.


    3.1. Change title to something short like "SC"

    3.2. Tap on "Add"

    14481611181_d21d64458b.


    4. All done. Your shortcut appears on the homescreen, where you can move it or add to a folder.

    For iPhone / iPod:

    1. Visit SeriousCompacts.com in your browser (Safari) and then tap the icon shown below:

    14298373029_0f98cc3a1f.


    2. Tap on "Add to Home Screen"

    14505119783_eb4d384775.


    3.1. Change the name to something short like "SC"

    3.2. Tap on "Add"

    14484987405_bae3e5c1a2.


    4. All done. Your shortcut appears on the homescreen, where you can move it or add to a folder.

    Yes, do this:

    Step 1) Visit SeriousCompacts.com from your phone browser. If you get the mobile version of the site automatically, proceed to Step 3. Otherwise go to Step 2.

    Step 2) Go to the far bottom left corner of the page and select "SeriousCompacts Mobile" from the dropdown menu

    Step 3) Tap on More ()

    Step 4) Tap on "Pin to Start"
