Run Easy Notecards as a Web App

We're excited to announce that you can now run Easy Notecards as a web app on both iOS and Android devices. To do this simply add Easy Notecards to your home screen from your browser.

Here are the benefits of running Easy Notecards as a web app:
  • Launch Easy Notecards with an icon on your homescreen. No need to open your browser.
  • None of the browser's UI (address bar, back button, etc.) will be visible.
  • Easy Notecards will be its own entity in Recent Apps.
  • Unlike traditional apps you will ALWAYS be using the latest version of Easy Notecards. No need to update ever.

Navigating Back a Page

Android users can simply use the dedicated back button to go back a page within Easy Notecards. For iOS users there is no dedicated back button so we added a back button within the web app. Look at the image below to see the location of the back button.

Note: While taking a quiz or playing a matching game the back button is temporarily removed so that it doesn't interfere with the activity.

If you use Easy Notecards on your mobile device you should definitely run it as a web app. It's super easy to do and makes the experience that much better.

Good Luck this semester!
