Convert a web page to an app in 10 seconds

I stumbled across this great tip on how to make any web page appear as an app using Google Chrome –  courtesy of Make Use Of.  This is but a 20 second tip so let’s get started.

I need a volunteer web page.  I have been looking at the Zendone 2.0 features recently so let’s take Zendone as the example.

Step 1

Using the Google Chrome browser, navigate to the page that you would like to appear as an application.

Step 2

Go to the Chrome Settings, then “More tools”, then select “Add to Desktop”.

Step 3

A  new window will pop up asking what you would like to name the desktop icon.  Type whatever name suits and click the tick box for “Open as window”.

Step 4

Now go to your desktop where you should now find the new icon that you have just created.  Double click on it and the page will now appear like a full application.  The screenshot below shows how our Zendone now looks like as an app!

Thumbs up to the guys at Google and “Make use of” for this one!
