Create a CR4 Shortcut on Your Smartphone

CR4 doesn't have an app, but as of last week it is mobile-friendly, and you can easily add a shortcut (that looks like an app button) to your smartphone's home screen. These instructions apply to any webpage that you might want to access without navigating to a bookmarks menu. Read on to learn how to do it.

iPhone

  1. In your browser (probably Safari), navigate to http://cr4.globalspec.com
  2. Tap the Share button at the bottom of the screen
  3. Tap the Add to Home Screen button
  4. Tap Add
  5. Move icon as desired

Android

  1. In your browser (probably Chrome), navigate to http://cr4.globalspec.com
  2. Press the Menu button (either below the screen on some devices or at the top-right corner of the browser)
  3. Tap Page
  4. Tap Add to Home Screen
  5. Move icon as desired
