How to Get the ‘Wordle’ Game on Your Android, iPhone, or iPad Home Screen

If you’ve joined the Wordle craze, you may be wondering why the game is only available on the web. That’s because Wordle creator Josh Wardle has no intention of spinning his “labor of love” into an app. Thankfully, it’s easy to get Wordle on your Android, iPhone, or iPad home screen, where it will act just like an app.

Yes, you’ll never miss a day of Wordle again! Once the Wordle web app is on your home screen, you can place it in folders or move it around like any other app. And don’t worry, this process won’t make you lose your daily stats.

Pinning Wordle to your Android home screen is easy. You just need the Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, or Firefox mobile web browser. These apps are available on Google Play, though Chrome comes installed on most Android phones and tablets by default. (Other browsers may work, though we’ve only tested these three.)

Here’s how to add Wordle to your Android home screen:

  1. Open Chrome, Edge, or Firefox on your Android smartphone or tablet.
  2. Go to the Wordle web page.
  3. Tap the Menu button (the three dots at the top or bottom of your screen).
  4. Select “Add to Home Screen.”
  5. You can now rename your Wordle web app, if you want.
  6. Tap “Add” to complete the process.

The Wordle web app should appear on your home screen. You can place this app in folders or move it around, but if you remove it from your home screen, you’ll have to go through this process again.

If you wake up one morning and the Wordle web app doesn’t load a new game, simply close all your apps and try again. You won’t lose your Wordle stats after closing the game.

If you’re an iPhone or iPad user, it’s time to learn a very important skill. Adding web apps to your home screen will give you instant access to your most-used web pages, such as recipe websites or, dare I say, Review Geek.

Here’s how to add Wordle to your iPhone or iPad home screen:

  1. On your iPhone or iPad, open Safari and visit the Wordle website.
  2. Tap the Share button (the rectangle with an arrow pointing out of its top). This button appears at the bottom of your iPhone screen or the top of your iPad screen.
  3. Select “Add to Home Screen” from the Share drop-down menu.
  4. You can now rename your Wordle web app, if you wish.
  5. Tap “Add” to complete the process.

Congrats! You now have a Wordle web app on your iPhone or iPad home screen. You can move this web app around or place it in folders like any other app, but if you remove it from your home screen, it will disappear from your device.

One last note—if the Wordle web app doesn’t load a new game, it may need to be reset. Simply close the web app and open it again. This process won’t affect your daily stats or scores.


Do you prefer to play Wordle on your laptop or desktop computer? Try pinning the Wordle web app to your Windows, Chromebook, or Mac home screen! The process is just as easy on your computer as it is on your phone or tablet.
