I don’t know how difficult it would be to set-up, but I use the “Add to Homescreen” to open Kinopio. I would love if it worked similar to Futureland or Roam where it doesn’t open up a tab in Safari, but it’s own standalone full screen browser type app (sorry if I’m explaining poorly, not sure what it’s called.)
Would be a huge help in staying organized and not having tons of tabs… and reopening the same tab.
The other thing that I don’t know how to solve, I have a regular bookmark for Kinopio.com/journal to open that days journal, but I’m not sure how to get that to the “Add to Homescreen” bookmark… I created a Shortcut for the time-being, which works, but if you are ever able to get to the above then I’d be stuck again…
I’d love to do this but kept hitting a snag. I tried every guide I could find to make adding the url to homescreen not act like a separate app, but it didn’t work. And there’s no error logging or anything. (If I recall it’s something special in the page <meta>
my current head meta incase anyone has any tips on this
ya that’s super annoying, I can add a workaround so that if you go to ‘about -> apps -> mobile -> there’ll be a checkbox to ‘start app with journal’’ or something like that which’ll temporarily set the url to /journal so you can add it to homescreen/bookmarks then
Amazing and looks great. I might be doing something wrong, but I think the /journal toggle is passing just kinopio.club rather than kinopio.club/journal. It does a good job of remembering where you left off though, even after force quitting, which is neat.
I’ll give it a try tomorrow to see how it behaves, but I’m thinking this way might actually be better. If it’s always able to remember where you left so you’re just opening the last space rather than forcing it to open at the days journal every time you click the icon… Not sure how it would behave with /journal in terms of remembering the previous state…
Without it checked, it passes: kinopio.club/whatever-page-I’m-on
It’ll be interesting to see how it behaves after being in the background for a long period of time, but force quitting and reopening with it checked brings you back to the last space, but doing that without it checked brings you back to the original URL.
