What icon gets added to the home screen, and how does the admin control that?

Upload 3 icons in the XF root directory.

icon-96x96.png
icon-192x192.png

Also open the manifest.json file and edit the 3 parts which say "YOURTEXT" and optionally the 2 color at the top.

So after install, I assume there should be a popup when browsing the site from a mobile device asking if you want to add the site to the home screen, just like the demo? I'm browsing the site on an iPhone 6s using Chrome and am not seeing anything after hitting reload a few times.

As far as I can tell, everything is installed correctly but nothing shows up. Even had a more tech smart friend check it out...he cant see the problem.

Does it not show up in Chrome on iOS?
