A user suggested this feature yesterday and I thought it was a really great idea. Chrome for Android's 'Add to Homescreen' menu option will add an app shortcut icon to your homescreen and clicking it will open the Chrome browser in full-screen mode, without the toolbars, giving a more native app feel to it.

To enable this feature:

1. Open up Chrome and go to a page you'd like a shortcut for (such as the 'Dashboard' or 'Add New Glucose' page). In the Chrome menu options, choose 'Add to homescreen.'

2. Enter 'GlucoseTracker' for the Title and an icon will be added to your device's homescreen.

3. Click that icon whenever you want to use GlucoseTracker and Chrome will open in full-screen 'app mode.'

That's it! :)
