Roadblocks to creating Manifold Studio Account, metamask won’t connect! thanks!

hey everybody! I’m just getting started with Manifold Studio, so excited to mint my own NFTs. has anybody succeeded using android smartphone or apple ipad? I do not own a computer or laptop. I am trying to just create an account through Manifold Studio. I have tried on both my phone and my ipad; each of which has metamask installed and functional. on both ipad and android phone when I attempt to create Manifold Studio account it prompts me to install metamask; it does not give the option to connect. and when i click install metamask, it gives me the sign in field and i type in my password and i sign in to Metamask. and when I return to Manifold Studio nothing has happened and it prompts me to install metamask again. any help is very much appreciated!!
