Installation How-to

Step 1

Enabling Manual Installation.

Open the Settings app on your Android device. By default, Android devices cannot install apps from sources other than the Google Play Store (or the Amazon App Store for Kindle devices). To install apps manually, you’ll need to allow your device to install apps from other sources.

Step 2

Find security option.

Tap “Security”. This will open the Security menu.

Step 3

check "Unknown sources" option.

Scroll down and check the “Unknown sources” box. Tap “OK” to confirm that you want to enable this.

  • Amazon Kindle users should open “Settings” → “More” → “Device” → “Allow Installation of Applications”.

Step 4

Transfer file to mobile device.

(If you have not downloaded the APK file yet, please do so before continuing…)

Copy the downloaded APK from your computer to your device.

You can copy the APK file to your device by plugging it into your computer via USB and then copying the file to an easy to access location. (eg. to the “Download” folder)

Step 5

Using File Explorer/File Directory.

Open your device’s File Manager app. This will display all of the files and folders on your Android device, as well as your SD card (if one is inserted).

Step 6

Find your APK file.

Navigate to the location of the APK file that you want to install.

  • If you copied the APK from your computer, it will be in whatever folder you copied it in to in step 4. If you just dragged it onto the Android device’s icon on your computer, it will be in the root directory.

Step 7

Tap on the .apk file.

Tap the APK. This will immediately open the installer for the app.

Step 8

Install the ELSA app.

Tap “Install” to install the app. The app will automatically install, and an icon for it will be added to your Home screen. You can tap the “Open” button in the installer to open it immediately.
