- At the bottom of the screen you’ll see an icon depicting an arrow that looks like it’s trying to get away from a square. Tap this button — It is the “Share” icon.
- You’ll now have a few options. The one you want to tap is “Add to Home Screen”.
- You’ll be asked to choose a name for the homescreen icon. Pick something you’ll remember and save it. When you’re done it’ll show up on your homescreen and you’ll be able to move it around and put it wherever in your list of apps you’d like
