Want to put a handy shortcut on your phone (or tablet) that goes straight to FAST? Perhaps you would like several shortcuts on your device, each to different sections of our site? It's super easy. Here's how...

We frequently get asked whether or not FAST has an app for apple or android phones. And the answer is no, we've made a careful decision to not do that.

Why? Because there's a super easy way to add an icon to your phone's home screen that will give you complete access to our entire site. We've worked hard to make our mobile site as simple and useful as our desktop version. And we want you to have the latest of everything we offer.

So rather than going through your app store, give this approach a try instead:

Apple Phones:

1. Open the Safari browser on your phone and load our site (www.fastmissions.com). Go to whatever page you want to make instantly available. We recommend the home page.

2. Look for an icon at the bottom of the screen, that looks like an arrow pointing away from a box, and click it.

3. Several icons for sharing will pop up. Scroll up on that screen for more options and look for an "Add to Home Screen" option. Click that.

4. Your phone may suggest a name for the icon like "Home" or "Tools." Feel free to overwrite this with "FAST" or "FAST TOOLS" or whatever.

Here's a video showing how to do this on an ipad.

Here's a special note for Apple users, if your phone keeps logging you out each time you visit our site. For some reason Apple disables cookies for some site by default. Here's a quick google search showing you how to enable cookies. Once that's done, you should go straight in each time, no problem.

Android Phones

1. Launch the Chrome browser on your phone and load our site (www.fastmissions.com). Go to whatever page you want to make instantly available. We recommend the home page.

2. Look for an icon in the top right corner that looks like three dots, and click it.

3. Several options pop up, including one called "Add to Home Screen". Choose that.

4. Your phone may suggest a name for the icon like "Home" or "Tools." Feel free to overwrite this with "FAST" or "FAST TOOLS" or whatever.

Here's a video showing how to do this on android.

Once your icon is created, you can move it around and use it just like any other icon. Just use the normal method for doing that based on your operating system. And be sure to put the FAST icon somewhere you can access easily!

Once you have got the hang of it you can create additional icons to different sections of our site: the memory engine, or your verse pack, the study area, your training center, or whatever. Add as many or as few icons as you want!

That's all there is to it...
