Blue is available everywhere you work — Web, MacOS, Windows, iOS, & Android.

Desktop App

The benefits of installing Blue as a desktop application are:

  • Faster performance

  • There is no browser interface around the Blue interface

  • Save Blue to Mac Dock or as a Windows desktop shortcut

  • True Fullscreen Mode

  • Native desktop notifications

  • Automatic updates

To install Blue as a desktop application, you'll need a Chromium-based browser such as:

Once you have installed any of the above browsers, simply log in to Blue as usual. You will then notice that there is an install icon on the right-hand side of the URL Address Bar:

Click the install icon in your browser's address bar to install the Blue desktop application. This icon is typically represented by a small computer or plus symbol.

Once you click on it, you will be prompted through a straightforward installation process. Follow these prompts carefully to ensure that the Blue application is correctly installed on your computer. After the installation is complete, you'll have the advantage of accessing Blue directly from your computer, bypassing the need to open your web browser. This direct access streamlines your workflow and enhances the overall user experience.

For Mac users, once the Blue application is installed, you can add it to your Dock. This provides you with quick and easy access to Blue, right from your Dock. To do this, open the Blue application and right-click (or control-click) on its icon in the Dock. From the menu that appears, select "Options," and then choose "Keep in Dock." This will ensure that the Blue icon remains in your Dock even after you close the application, allowing for faster and more convenient access in the future.

Windows users can also benefit from quick access by creating a shortcut for the Blue application on their desktop. After installing Blue, navigate to your system's location where the application is installed. Right-click on the Blue application icon and select "Create shortcut." Then, choose to place this shortcut on your desktop. This creates an easily accessible icon on your desktop, enabling you to launch Blue with a double-click without navigating through your system's menu or file explorer.

Progressive Web Application (PWA)

Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) are a type of application software delivered through the web, built using standard web technologies including HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
