Don’t mix your words up people.

Those of you who use social media often will have seen the latest craze surrounding the game Wordle.

Those coloured curious may have already made their way to the App Store or Google Play Store to seek this game out.

What we can tell you is that you’ll be met with a bunch of knock-off versions rather than the official game that everyone else is playing.

Knock-off may be a little harsh, they’re great games but we’re all here for the real-deal. For those of you with no idea what Wordle is, fear not.

Basically, there’s a mystery five letter word that appears every day and you get six chances to figure it out.

Any letters you get right will be highlighted orange, and any letters that are right and also in the right place will be highlighted green.

Don’t be fooled. I can tell you from experience, it’s not as easy as it sounds. It seems that the only 5 letter word that comes to mind when playing is idiot.

Wordle is played on the web, however there’s a handy way of getting it on your mobile home screen – whether you’re repping an iPhone or an Android.

iPhone users.

You only get one five letter word a day, so you don’t want to miss it. Adding it to your mobile’s home screen is the easiest way of ensuring this doesn’t happen.

1)     Open Safari on your iPhone.

2)     Search for

3)     Tap the share icon.

4)     Select Add to Home Screen.

5)     Tap Add on the next screen.

Wordle will now be readily available on your home screen and in your App Library. When you open it up, you’ll be able to play the game in its own window – rather than on Safari.

Android users.

Android users aren’t left out of all the Wordle fun. The process for adding Wordle to your Android home screen is a little different.

1)     Open Chrome on your Android.

2)     Search for

3)     Tap the three dots.

4)     Select Add to Home Screen.

5)     Tap Add on the next screen.

If you’re following this article on a Google Pixel device, the icon is referred to as a widget. You can either add it to the Home Screen or drag it to appear wherever you choose.

Unlike on iPhone, Wordle won’t appear in your App Library – but will still be accessible on your Home Screen and will open in its own window too.

I’m in, how do I share?
