The Town of Tolland has a Responsive Design Website which creates easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones). With this type of feature a Mobile App is not necessary as residents can add shortcuts to their smartphones’ home screen and access our website with one click.
Please follow the directions below for the type of smartphone you own:
Launch Chrome for Android and open the website (www.tolland.org) or web page you want to pin to your home screen. Tap the Menu button and tap Add Shortcut.
The icon will appear on your home screen like any other app shortcut or widget, so you can drag it around and put it wherever you like.
Other popular Android browsers also offer this feature. For example, Firefox for Android can do this if you tap the Menu button, tap the Page option, and tap Add to Home Screen.
iPhone, iPad, & iPod Touch
Launch Safari for Apple’s iOS and navigate to the website (www.tolland.org) or web page you want to add to your home screen. Tap the Share button on the browser’s toolbar (the rectangle with an arrow pointing upward located on the bar at the top of the screen on an iPad and on the bar at the bottom of the screen on an iPhone or iPod Touch). Tap the Add to Home Screen icon in the Share menu.
You may be prompted to name the shortcut before tapping the Add button. The icon can be dragged around and placed anywhere, including in app folders just like a normal app icon.
Other browsers, like Chrome for iOS, don’t offer this feature. Due to the limitations in Apple’s iOS, only Apple’s own Safari browser is allowed to do this.
