Google open-sourced under the Apache license its "Mobile Bookmark Bubble" JavaScript library that helps users bookmark the web app to their home screen. "The bubble, which currently supports iPhone, iPod and iPad devices running iPhone OS 3 and above, slides in at the bottom of the app with instructions for creating bookmark. Bubble automatically slides back out again after a few seconds if user doesn't interact with it. HTML5 local storage is used to prevent bubble from being shown after the user has dismissed it too many times. The amount of time the bubble remains visible, as well as the number of times the bubble can be dismissed, can be easily configured," explains Google.

The repository includes a small sample app demonstrating how the library can be used.
