    Default Unanswered: Detect if app is launched 'from desktop'

    Unanswered: Detect if app is launched 'from desktop'


    If you add your html5 app to desktop using 'add to home screen' on iOS (and similar on android), is there a way to detect if your app was launched using this home screen shortcut icon?

    I don't think so, but we are seeing some things that do work from a browser window , say mobile Safari, and when launched from home screen it doesn't work.

    This happens particularly when hard redirecting to do oAuth on Facebook for instance. It works from a browser, not from the home screen.

    Any info on this subject is appreciated!

    Ext.browser.is.Standalone should be true if launched from the homescreen
