Installation Instructions for Desktop programsIn these instructions, 'Application' is used as general application name. To install a specific application, substitute 'Application' with the application's name.
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
Use your smart phone to navigate to the web app by clicking on 'View' on the resource description page. You can add the app to your home screen to make it perform more like a native application.

Our newsletter and newsfeeds, as well as our pages on facebook and twitter, will let you know when an app has been updated.

If this doesn't work, try removing the app (as you would any other app) and re-installing a per the above installation instructions.
