Restrictions on 'Sideloading' FIAT LUX
The process of installing an Application on yuur device without going through a recognized App Store is called "sideloading". Most Android devices allow sideloading, but Apple requires all apps to be installed through their App Store, so the following instructions will only work on an Android.
Most, but not all Android devices allow sideloading. Those that don't often run a proprietry version of Android intended to be "safe" for younger children. Also, if your Android tablet or smart phone is more than 3 years old or has severe memory limitations FIAT LUX may not run properly.
How to Install FIAT LUX on your Android Device
When you download the FIAT LUX app from an App Store it is automatically installed on your device. When you "sideload" it from the Heritage History website, there is a three step process.
- Download a Fiat Lux ".APK" file to your device.
- Change a setting on your device to allow the application to be installed. (Enable installation of unknown sources)
- Find the downloaded APK file on your device and tap on it to complete installation.
Step 1: Download the FIAT LUX *.APK file
Step 2: Enable "Unknown Sources" download
Step 3: Find the downloaded file on your device and tap on it
Another way to locate your *.apk file is to use your "Files" app to locate the "Download" directory.
The file name fore the Catholic App is FiatLux.Android.apk.
The file name for the History app is FiatHistory.Android.apk.
FIAT LUX Now Available on Google Play Store
A early release version of FIAT LUX - CATHOLIC is currently available in the Google Play Store. The early release version is very stable and can be downloaded onto any device running an ANDROID operating system from HERE.
Note: The development version of FIAT LUX Catholic downloaded from this page has a different App ID than the Google Play Store version. Loading one version will not overwrite the other and they will appear as two identical apps on your device. Since they are distinct apps, identities created and medals won cannot be shared or transfered between versions.
At this time FIAT LUX - HISTORY KNOWLEDGE is not available from the Play Store and must be downloaded from this page.
