How can I use BeWelcome on my mobile device/cell phone? Is there an app?

Yes, there is a BeWelcome mobile app for Android which you can download from the PlayStore or directly from https://downloads.bewelcome.org/apps/BeWelcome-1.0.0.1.apk.

Depending on your browser you may also see a message inviting you to install the app when visiting www.bewelcome.org.

For i0S/iPhone we don’t have an app yet, since BeWelcome has been focusing its limited resources on a single site version which is user-friendly on all devices and which adapts to varying screen sizes. This eliminates the need to maintain separate versions for web, Android and iOS and lets members use the same version across all their devices, without installing an app.

Another way to access BeWelcome in the same way as with a mobile app, you can add a shortcut to your home screen through the menu of your web browser:

  • Firefox: Page | Add as shortcut
  • Opera: Add to | Home screen
  • Chrome: Add to the home screen
  • iOS Safari: Tap on “Share” icon | Add to home screen
