Add To Home Screen

Verious Support
May 07, 2012

The script places a floating balloon inviting the user to add your application to the home screen. Version 2 of the script takes advantage of iOS5 native fixed elements positioning and gracefully degrades to a javascript only version on iOS4.

The code is compatible with iPhone/iPod touch, iPhone4 and iPad. On older devices the “add” icon is a “+” while on iOS 4.2 it has been replaced. The script detects the OS version and displays the appropriate icon.

The message appears after 2 seconds (customizable) from page load, and is destroyed after 15 seconds (also customizable). The balloon enters and exits the screen with a quick configurable animation: drop from top, bubble from bottom or fade in/out.

The balloon can be dismissed any time by tapping the small “x” icon.

The script also checks the user’s locale and shows the message in an appropriate language. So far the following languages are supported:

    • Catalan
    • Chinese (Traditional and Simplified)
    • Danish
    • Dutch
    • English
    • Finnish
    • French
    • German
    • Greek
    • Hebrew
    • Hungarian
    • Italian
    • Japanese
    • Korean
    • Norwegian
    • Polish
    • Portuguese
    • Russian
    • Spanish
    • Swedish
    • Thai
    • Turkish

Please help me localize the script in more languages.

Locale can be forced, so you can use only English if so desired.
