How to install the ePortfolio App on an iPhone

The NHS ePortfolio App is an HTML5 web application.  This approach has been taken primarily to ensure that the application can be made available on the widest range of devices possible.

 

This document outlines the steps to be followed to add an icon to the home screen of Apple’s iPhone devices running IOS5, iOS6 or iOS7 as would happen if the app was available for “installation” from the Apple App Store.  Please note – screenshots may not exactly match your device.

 

Step 1

Firstly, tap the Safari icon on your iPhone to open the Safari web browser and navigate to the website http://app.nhseportfolios.org.  You will be presented with a login page as shown below:

 

     

iOS 5

iOS 6

iOS 7

 

Step 2

Once on the login page, tap the button in the centre of the toolbar at the bottom of the screen to open the actions menu:

 

     

iOS 5

iOS 6

iOS 7

 

Step 3

Tap the “Add to Home Screen” button, you will then be presented with the ability to change the title of the new icon you are going to add to your home screen – we recommend you leave this as “ePortfolio” and tap “Add” in the top right.

 

     

iOS 5

iOS 6

iOS 7

 

Step 4

You should now have an icon on your home screen that you can tap to use or tap and hold to move around like other apps from the App Store:

 

     

iOS 5

iOS 6

iOS 7

 

Step 5

Tap the ePortfolio icon to launch the ePortfolio app.  You will be prompted to login and confirm you are not using a public (shared) device.  Please login using the same username/password credentials you use for the main ePortfolio website.
