How to use Gougou as a native app on your mobile device

December 07, 2021

As the Gougou app is still in an early stage of development, we decided to release it as a webapp that can run only inside a browser. That being said, currently you won’t be able to find our app on Appstore or Google Play platforms. Don’t worry, though! Below you will find everything you need to make Gougou work like a native iOS or Android app.

iPhone and iPad

If you are an iPhone user, first you’ll have to open Safari and subsequently head to our app URL. At the bottom you should be able to see a menu bar, please tap the share icon in the middle, and then click on Add to Home Screen item.

Next, when Safari asks you to confirm the name and the URL of the webapp, just click on the Add button. From now, the Gougou app should be visibile on your home screen, just like all other apps.

On iPad the process looks almost the same, only the Share button is placed in the upper-right corner, right next to the address bar.

Android

On Android you will have to open Chrome and then head to our app URL. At the top right corner, you will see the three-dot icon, please tap it and then click on the Add to Home screen item.

Next, Chrome will ask you to confirm the name of the webapp, you can just click on the Add button. From now, the Gougou app should be visible on your home screen, just like all other apps.
