How to Add Web Clips to iOS with Hexnode?

Web Clip looks like an app, with a name and icon. When opened, it will take you to a website. To make it clearer for you, let us start with an example. While trying to create a web clip, you entered the label as “Hexnode”, provided the URL and selected an icon of your choice. Then, an ‘app’ named “Hexnode” will be displayed (with the icon you chose) along with other app icons on the home screen, which will take you to when opened.

How Web Clip differs from a Web App?

The main difference between a web app and a web clip in Hexnode is that the web apps can be seen as bookmarks in Safari whereas a web clip is displayed as one among other apps.
