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.

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.
