You could use an app on Android devices, but they all either look as if their UI hasn’t been updated since Android ask you to sideload it. Sideloading could compromise the security of your device, and that’s why we don’t recommend it. We also don’t feel comfortable recommending apps with poor UI that haven’t been updated in years, so it’s best to do this via a browser on your Android phone.

On iOS devices, the app route is even more troublesome, as you will either need a desktop app called Cydia Impactor that will ask you for your Apple credentials to generate a certificate for a third-party app or worse, have to jailbreak your Apple device.
