Installing applications and programs

Installation Instructions for Desktop programs

In these instructions, 'Application' is used as general application name. To install a specific application, substitute 'Application' with the application's name.


Android Apps

First you need to enable your device to install applications from unknown sources. This is usually found in Settings > Applications or Settings > Security.

Click on the link you have been given to download the file, navigate to the Downloads folder and click on the application (e.g.alco.apk) to install the app.

Your pre-installed downloads viewer may not recognise your download as an application - it won't display the icon and will treat the app as a folder. If this happens, try installing a file explorer such as ES File Explorer

Web Apps

Just navigate to the URL that you have been given to use these applications. You will, of course, have to have an Internet connection. You can put an icon on your home screen. This is usually done throught the bookmarks menu.
