How to Install on iOS Devices like iPads or iPhones

Welcome to Atticus. One of the significant features of Atticus is that you can install a Progressive Web App (PWA) onto iOS devices. That way, you can access Atticus from your iOS device screen, just like a mobile app.  

Plus, if you do this, you can open up a project and then be able to disconnect from the internet and keep writing or formatting in that project. You’ll only need to reconnect to the internet to either change projects or format. Plus, once you do reconnect, it will sync up with the system. 

So, with that, let’s begin in getting you setup with your iOS device.

Step 1: Open up Safari

You’ll need to use Safari in order to do this – but luckily, every iOS device comes with it. If you don’t have it though, just go to the App Store on your iOS device and download Safari there for free. 

Step 2: Go to App.Atticus.io

Once you’ve opened up Safari, go to app.atticus.io.   

Step 3: Install the Atticus Web App

Tap the ‘Share’ button, scroll down and tap ‘Add to Home Screen.’  

Using Atticus Offline

Now that you have Atticus on your iOS device, you can use it offline. All you need to do is open it up and verify that you’re logged in and select a book you want to work on. 

The only things you can’t do while offline are: 

  • Import a document
  • Export a document
  • Change between books

And that’s it. The next time you connect to the internet, Atticus will sync up your online work and you’ll be golden. Enjoy!
