+##Introduction
+
+LEDborg Express allows you to control your LEDBorg for Raspberry Pi directly from any network connected desktop computer, mobile device or tablet.
+
+##Getting Started
+
+1. Follow installation instructions at http://www.piborg.com/ledborg/install
+
+2. Open Terminal on Raspberry Pi and find the IP Address of your Raspberry in XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX format. Take a note of this. Type:
+>	ifconfig
+
+
+3. If you are running headless, then simply connect to your Pi using the Terminal app of your choice.
+
+4. On your Raspberry Pi, CD to the directory wher you wish to install the application.
+
+5. In terminal type: 
+> sudo wget https://bitbucket.org/fotosyn/fotosynlabs/src/89d19de1a15e7d540606eb3d46853455ecaddb7d/LEDBorg-Express/ledborg-express.zip
+
+6. Unzip this folder. If you don't have zip installed try using - sudo apt-get install zip 
+> unzip ledborg-express.zip 
+
+7. Once extracted you'll have anew folder called ledborg-express. To move into this folder type: 
+> cd ledborg-express
+
+8. Start the application by typing:
+> sudo python ledborg.py
+
+The webserver will start with message 'Running... Serving on port XXXX'
+
+9. Navigate in any web browser on a desktop, smartphone or tablet to the IP address you found earlier. The last four XXXX after the colon is the port number which as default is 8000
+> http:XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:XXXX/console.html
+
+10. Touch or click on the swatches to mix the colours to change the colour of the LEDs on the LEDBorg.
+
+##Create a launch icon

+You can add a launch icon to your homescreen on smartphones and tablets. 
+Simply select the 'Add to Home Screen' option from the bookmarks menu within the browser. 
+An icon should appear on your Home Screen named LEDBorg Express.
