By Justin Sterenberg

March 4, 2015

One of the most commonly requested features for the Today Devotional Mobile app is the ability to increase the text size. Unfortunately, that function isn't currently available on our mobile app. The third party software that the app is built in doesn't allow that functionality. However, there is a place that function is available -- our website on your mobile device! The new Today Devotional website was built with responsive design, so the site optimizes for the device that you're on.

Sometimes it's nice to have that icon on your phone as a reminder to check out your daily devotional every day. This post will show you how to save the Today website as an app icon on your phone.
