The Carbon Challenge on your mobile

The Carbon Challenge On Your Mobile Devices

The Challenge is a progressive web-app, available for use via your web browser. A progressive web-app is a regular web page, but functions as a native app on your mobile devices, without the need for App Store or Google Play.

Push notifications are currently only available for Android, but we’re working on it!

iOS

Due to limitations of iOS, our PWA is unavailable on any devices with iOS installed. To improve your challenge experience, we recommend you add a shortcut to our site on your home screen for the duration of the campaign.

Here’s how you do it

  1. Open browser on your mobile device.
  2. Navigate to the Carbon Challenge you want to save on your home screen. If you want to save the challenge you’re participating in, sign into this page.
  3. Click the Share Button on your menu bar (a box with an arrow facing upwards).
  4. Click Add to Home Screen.
  5. Give the shortcut a name, and click Add in the upper-right corner.
  6. You’ll now be able to access the website through your Home Screen.

 

Android

Here’s how you do it:

  1. Open browser on your mobile device (Google Chrome or Safari)
  2. The first time you enter the Challenge on mobile, you will get an automatic pop-up asking if you want to add this to your home screen.
  3. Add to the home screen by answering yes to the pop-up.
  4. If you don’t get the pop-up, go to the three dots settings in the upper right corner of your browser, and find “add to home screen“.
  5. Give the shortcut a name, and click add.
  6. You’ll now be able to access the Challenge through your home screen and have access to pop-up notifications.
