I don’t know about you, but I love blogs. I read roughly 100 blogs, ranging from friends to folks who don’t know I exist, from parenting to faith to do-it-yourself. So hi, I’m Beth Anne & I’m a blog-aholic.
I keep them all organized in my Google Reader, where I read them every morning over a cup of coffee or while I nom on a sandwich at lunch. I’m usually on my desktop computer, but lately I find myself reading blogs on my phone or iPad. I looked for a good “reader” app & couldn’t find one, but soon realized that I could bookmark my reader to my home screen, almost creating my own app.
First, pull up Gmail in Safari & log in.
In the upper left, tap the drop-down “More” menu & select “Reader.”
Your reader will look like this. (maybe a little different, depending on which blogs you read. duh.) On the top left, you’ll see the “box with an arrow.” Tap on it:
From the dropped menu, select “Add to Home Screen.”
This box will pop up & you can choose what you name your “app.” Tap the “Add” button.
Your app should be on the home screen!
