3 min readFeb 24, 2021

Coinwink is a cross-platform web app, which means that you can use it from any device instantly, without the need to download or install anything.

On a desktop or a laptop computer, simply open Coinwink in your web browser. The beauty of such a web app is that it can be used on any operating system, be it Windows, Linux, macOS, or any other OS.

On mobile devices, you can place the Coinwink app icon on your mobile device’s Home screen and then use it similarly to any other mobile app. When opened from the Home screen, the browser’s address bar is hidden, so the app has a native feel.

In this article, you will find visual instructions on how to place the Coinwink app icon on your Android or iOS mobile device’s Home screen using a mobile web browser.

As one of our users describes the Coinwink mobile experience:

“It’s honestly incredible how easy it is to make this into an iOS app just by saving it to the home page on your phone and logging in once… REVOLUTIONARY”
