Support full-screen mode (Install to Homescreen) for Android tablets

I was going to suggest creating a tablet-friendly layout inside the Android app, but I realize that’s lots of development work. The good news is NewsBlur works really well on Chrome for Android – except for the tabs and address bar taking up 1/3 of the screen. (You can kinda sorta make the tabs scroll off if you resize the window, but it’s pretty janky.)

Chrome makes it really easy to install a page as a fullscreen app, though – all you need is a JSON manifest.

Here’s the documentation.

Any chance you could add the manifest for those of us on Android tablets?
