I originally wrote this for my own use. I use it every day and hope you will too. You can add it to your Android and IOS Phone screen... Android: Go to, save the page as a bookmark, then go to bookmarks and hold down your finger on the new bookmark. You'll get a menu, then select "save shortcut to home screen". For iOS/Apple: Go to, then select the icon to add a bookmark. One of the selections is to "add it to your home screen". Select that.

Thanks for your kind attention.
