Labstep has been designed as a progressive web app (PWA), meaning you can add it to your home screen and it will behave like any other app you’ve downloaded. Here is how to set it up on your device (iOS and Android friendly).


We designed Labstep to make your life as a scientist easier, which is why we decided it was important for you to be able to use it from your phone, just as much as from your laptop. Wherever you are, on the go or in the lab, you can still have access to everything you need!

NB: The following steps are only for phones and tablets operated by either iOS or Android.

For iOS:

  1. Open Safari.

  2. Go to the Labstep sign-in page.

  3. Click the share button at the bottom of your screen.

  4. Select ‘Add to Home Screen’ – you might need to scroll down to see it.

  5. A pop-up will appear where you will be able to rename the icon.

  6. Click on ‘Add’.

  7. Enjoy opening Labstep from your home screen like any other app!
