    Cute.

    I made a trivial Android app to make it even easier (i.e., eliminate the
    browser).

    Have fun!

    Looks slimilar to: https://github.com/andreasbehnke/lms-material-app - this, AFAIR, does allow specifying the server details in its config. It also wires the volume up/down buttons to Materials volume functions.

    It says that it is obsolete, but I'll see if I can learn some tricks
    from it. Thanks for the pointer!

    If you feel like developing... what would be great (and I've been thinking of looking into for a while) is a generic web-app applicaiton that can install shortcuts to the homescreen. i.e. Launch main app, and it has a list of saved URLs, and allows you to add new ones. For each of these URLs it should add a shortcut to the homescreen (like browsers do) allowing the spcified URL to be launched in a new fullscreen window. That way it would work wth Material, and any other sites.

    If you take a good look at the lms-app, you can see it is precisely that.
    Just change the url in config.xml...

    For my wife, who is severely handicapped after a stroke, I made this
    generic webview app and use (distinct copies of) it with different
    URLs. So she has a simple 'button' (app) on her home screen that launches
    one specific site, and always starts at the beginning (no history), full
    screen, etc. Another buttton (app) launches a different site, and so on.
