Follow these steps to preview your fully branded app on your android mobile device before it goes live to app users in Google Play and the App Store. The link to download a preview is for your personal use only. Sharing the preview link with others is not permitted. Once your app is live users may download your app from the stores.

While your app is in the process of installing, you’ll receive a pop-up notification stating that your phone is not permitted to install unknown apps. You’ll need to change your mobile’s settings to continue downloading your app:
