How to download and install the Android app from the doForms website

Follow

There are four parts to this.


First you need to give permission to your Android device to run Apps that are not downloaded from the Play Store (you will only need to do this once):

  • Next, press the Home button on your device and open the Android Settings.
  • Select Security.
  • Check the “Unknown sources” setting.

Second you will download an app called ASTRO File Manager that will make installation easier (you will only need to do this once):

  • Open the Play Store on your device and search for "ASTRO File Manager".
  • Install the free version of this app to your device.

Third, download the doForms APK file from our download page onto your Android device:

  • From the web browser on your device go to http://doforms.com/downloads and open this page.
  • Tap the desired version of the Android app.  This will download the doForms APK file to the "Download" folder on your device.

Finally, install the doForms APK file:

  • Open the ASTRO File Manager app.
  • Select "Manage My Files".
  • Navigate to the "Download" folder. You will see doForms APK listed.
  • Tap on doForms APK file and select the Install option.
  • When the installation is complete select Open and follow the on-screen instructions.

Note that Android apps manually installed per the instructions above are not updated automatically through the normal Play Store app update process.  In order to update, you will need to uninstall then download and reinstall the app.

To uninstall:

  • Open the ASTRO File Manager app.
  • Select "Manage My Files".
  • Navigate to the "Download" folder. You will see doForms APK listed.
  • Press (tap and hold) on doForms APK file and select the "Delete" option (trash can icon).
  • Next press the Home button on your device and open the Android Settings.
  • Locate the Application Manager.
  • Select the doForms app.
  • Tap Uninstall.

To reinstall:

  • Follow the download and installation steps above.

Also note that if at some point you want to switch to using the doForms app downloaded from the Play Store, then you MUST first uninstall the doForms app downloaded from our website by following the instructions above.
