Apps Installs

Android App

Our Android App is presently not available in the Play store and must be installed manually:

  1. You’ll receive a warning at the bottom of the phone letting you know that you must give that app permission to install the file.

  2. Tap the Settings button to proceed.

  3. On the next page, you’ll be asked to allow the app to make APK installs. In our case, it’s the Files by Google app. Toggle on Allow from this source.

  4. A prompt should pop up, giving you the option to Install the app. Go ahead and follow the instructions to install.

  5. Note β€” Sometimes, you may need to initiate installation again. For example, if you tap the notification and use your browser to do it, you sometimes need to tap the notification again to get the install prompt after giving the app permission.

  1. If it's the first time installing an App like this, you might need to Enable Installation from Unknown Sources:

  • On your Android device, open the Settings app.

  • Scroll down to Security or Privacy settings (the name varies by device).

  • Find the option labeled Install unknown apps or Unknown sources. Toggle this setting to allow installations from sources other than the Google Play Store.
