Is there a way to determine which way your app was launched? For example, if you know it was launched from the user adding it as a home icon then you might want to add more items to the main panel because you know you have more real estate.

Hi, you must view the window.navigator var.



if (("standalone" in window.navigator) && !window.navigator.standalone){
{
// NOT IN STANDALONE
} else {
// STANDALONE
}

I was thinking about a way to notify the user of a better experience if they added it to the home screen (more real estate, sweet loading graphic, app-like feel). I wonder if this would be the preferred way to maybe show a notification of some kind for the browser-based users?
