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.
