Makeshift TpT app?!

Ok- I’m breaking the rules because I saw this awesome pin on Pinterest that all TpTers HAVE TO SEE!

It is how to make your own app from a website?!  LIFESAVER!  If you are anything like me, TpT might be one of those website you tend to check frequently and although there could be an app sometime in the future (hopefully)  I just found this iPhone trick (new to me anyway) and at least I can quickly get to my Dashboard and it even has the little TpT icon!!!

Here’s the How-to:

First, go to desired website- then click the middle button (box with arrow coming out) 
You should get options like below: 
(I have iPhone 4S so yours might look a little different)

Click add to Home Screen 

Fill in the name you want and WA-LA!
I’m so excited about this- hopefully others find this helpful!  How easy is that?!  

I was inspired by the pin here:
