Adding android homescreen shortcut

I’m writing an ionic app for android (in coffeescript and angular), and I want to add a shortcut to the app on the homescreen. Google didn’t help, and this cordova/phonegap plugin won’t work either.

Any idea on how to do it?

I have the same issue.


I have the same issue, after the app is installed on the device, the shortcut is not auto created on home screen.
How can we achieve this?

Thank you in advance!

Confirmed that when you upload the apk on google’s playstore that’s taken care of.

Make sure it’s not in debug mode, otherwise you won’t be able to upload it

Thank you kind sir for your reply. :disappointed_relieved:

I think this is the right answer, because there is no documentation regarding this implementation.
