You can use the Jobtable web app just like a native app on your Android phone.

Progressive web apps on Android can be "installed" in a similar way to native apps. When you "install" a web app from the browser, it opens up just like a native app.

Sometimes, a web app will tell you it can be installed. If that's the case, simply tap the "Install" button.

FYI - Mozilla Firefox on Android cannot install web apps.

Google Chrome

In Google Chrome, tap the three-dot menu icon and select "Install App."

Web apps installed from Chrome are added to the app drawer along with the home screen. They also appear in the Android share menu.

Microsoft Edge

In Microsoft Edge, tap the three-dot menu icon and select "Add to Phone."

Web apps installed by Edge will only appear on the home screen, but they still open up just like a native app.
