How to save a flipbook to a homescreen as a favicon 

With the Safari, Google Chrome and Firefox browsers, both you and your viewers can now save your online flipbooks as favicons to your home screen on Apple iPads, iPhones and Android tablets and phones. Windows device users can also pin flipbooks to the Start screen by using the Microsoft Edge browser.



Your viewers simply need to open your flipbook on their preferred device. 


  • iOS users need to open the flipbook using Safari, tap the share button and click “Add to Home Screen”. This allows them to pin your flipbook as an icon to their iPhone and iPad home screens and access it at any time.
  • Android device users can open the flipbook in both Google Chrome and Firefox, tap the menu button on the browser and click “Add to Home Screen”.
  • Windows device users need to open the flipbook they want to pin in Microsoft Edge, tap the More button and click “Pin to Start” in the menu that appears.
