It's a web page, not an app. What you are doing is creating a shortcut on the home page. The icon is the web page's favicon.

The instructions for android say tap 3 dots then add to home screen but it doesn't appear.
Add to home screen is a function of your browser. Nothing to do with the "app". If your home screen is full, the browser will add it to a second or subsequent home screen. Try scrolling through them till you find it.

It is not a webpage, it is a progressive web app.


Progressive Web Apps can control native device features.

The icon on the home screen is not a bookmark to a webpage.

PWA use service workers and a manifest to control app functions.
