When a website is installable, Chrome and Chrome-based browsers have a plus sign or a down arrow in the URL field. Look to the right side of your browser window to locate it.
Click the plus sign to install the Hub on your computer.
Browse to the Hub website
First, browse to https://hub.wadistricts.org.
Next, install the app
- Tap the three dots in the top right-hand corner of your screen.
- Select Install app (the wording may vary depending on which version of Android is installed).
- A popup will appear that prompts you to install so click Install.
Finally, add it to your Home screen
- You may need to find it. On some phones you can swipe up from your home screen to reach the list of installed apps. The Hub will be shown as WACD Hub.
- Hold down that icon and select Add to home screen.
- You’re done! Now you’ll have a more seamless experience with the Hub when viewing it on your smartphone!
When you open the app
When you have completed all these steps and open the app, you’ll see a splash screen and then it will transition to the Hub’s home page.
The menu is still there!
Many people won’t immediately find the main menu. It’s still there! On the home page, notice the three horizontal lines along the left margin. That icon is called a hamburger because of the three layers: bun, filling, bun. Tap the hamburger to reach the menu.
Uninstalling the app
When you choose to uninstall the app, it’s easy to do: just hold down the Hub icon and choose Uninstall.

What is a Progressive Web App?
We use a PWA service to provide a user experience on a smart phone or tablet that makes our website look like a native app. Our choice for this service is SuperPWA. Read more about PWAs.
We checked our website for appropriate color contrast at https://color.a11y.com/Contrast/ and based on those results, adjusted one element to increase contrast.
Alt image descriptions
We are using Alt Images to help make sure that our images have alt names. We continue to work through the many images on the site to make sure they have appropriate names/descriptions.
We installed the One Click Accessibility plugin to help folks access our content. Finally, we ran the site URL through several online accessibility checkers, all of which found some items for us to improve.
