September 10, 2021

One of the most commonly requested features for Kids Corner is the ability to view all of our great resources, including devotions, parent blogs, Liz and Friends episodes, Bible story podcasts, Kids in Action videos and more through a mobile app. We’re excited to share some simple steps with you on how to make your own Kids Corner “mobile app” on your phone or tablet. The new Kids Corner website was built with responsive design, so the site optimizes for the device that you're on.

Sometimes it's nice to have that icon on your phone as a reminder to check out Kids Corner for weekly devotions, blogs, and podcasts. This post will show you how to save the Kids Corner website as an app icon on your phone.
