How to install the app (2016 version, 0:50)

Or, see the instructions, below...

Installation

The app is what's called a web-based mobile app, which means to install it, you open the URL of the app using the browser on your phone, and then add the URL to you home screen, as described below.

1. On your smart phone, browse to RavenRockRamble.org/mobile, or scan this QR code: 

Note: When you run the app you will be asked whether it should be allowed to access your location.  Choose Yes or Allow, as otherwise none of the map functions will work.

2. After opening in your browser, add the app's icon to your home screen. 

iOS (Safari)

Android (Chrome)

  1. Press the Share button at the bottom of the screen

  2. Press the "Add to Home Screen" button

  3. Press "Add" in the upper-right corner.
  1. Press the menu button 
    (varies by phone type)
  2. Press "Add to Home Screen" 

If "Add to Home Screen" (or something similar) is not an available option, then:

  1. Save the app's home page as a bookmark
  2. Open the browser's bookmarks, and press and hold the Raven Rock Ramble app's bookmark
  3. Press "Add shortcut to home" (or option with similar wording)

Go back to your home screen, open the Raven Rock Ramble app, and play! 

Known limitations

  1. If you close the app while on a map page, you may drain your battery more quickly. Instead, navigate to the Home page or a non-map page to better preserve your battery life.
  2. Clicking on the facebook icon may or may not open the facebook app or browser to the Raven Rock Ramble page. This is particularly true on Android phones.
