Getting access to Freelancer.com is now easier than ever!

But what if you can access our mobile web in one click and feel like you’re using the native app? Now you can with the Freelancer web app.
What is a Web App
A web app functions like a native app but is rendered through a mobile browser. There’s no need to go to an app store because you can install a web app on your home screen through a web browser. It’s like bookmarking a web page but the bookmark is on your device’s home screen.
How to Install the Freelancer Web App
The Freelancer web app is your one-click access to our mobile website. Once you’ve installed the web app, you no longer need to open the browser and type the web page address. Now all you have to do is go to your home screen and tap the web app icon.
Here’s how to install it on an Android device:
Open Freelancer.com on Chrome. The “Add to Home Screen” banner will pop up. Click to install the web app.
Web app install banner will not show up on your second visit unless you clear your search history. Alternatively, you can find the “Add to Home Screen” option by clicking the menu button on the upper rightmost corner of Chrome.
Once installed, the icon will appear on your home screen. Click to open the web app.
You will see the splash screen where the icon and the name of the web app are on display, giving you that native app feel.
