Sideloading (Android & Kindle Users)

CreateAbility’s apps can be installed via a process often referred to as “sideloading”. Sideloading Android apps bypasses a device’s default app store, where applications are traditionally downloaded and installed from.
While slightly more complicated to perform, sideloading our apps affords more flexibility for deploying our technologies on a more accessible range of devices. 

  • To start, locate the APK file for your CreateAbility product. An APK is an Android Package, a file that contains everything needed to install and run an Android app. An APK will be provided to you via e-mail from a CreateAbility team member. If you’re unable to locate your APK, contact us and we’ll send you one ASAP.
    Note: It’s important to install the most up-to-date APK to have the most stable and feature-rich experience.
