[edit] Manual Installation

If you do not want to install the app from Google/Amazon, you can install it manually. This can be useful if want to install an update that was just announced on the WarLight blog but not yet approved by Google/Amazon, or if you don't have access to the Google/Amazon store for some reason.

Note: If you install manually, the app will not be automatically updated when new versions are released. You should watch the WarLight blog for update announcements, and re-install the latest APK from this page whenever a new version is released.

Here are instructions on how to manually install the WarLight Android app:

  • Step 1: Turn on Unknown Sources. This allows your device to install apps from places other than Google Play. To do this, simply go to Settings -> Applications and check Unknown Sources if it’s not already checked. This may be in a slightly different location on your device.
  • Step 2: Tap the link below from your device, or scan the QR code.


  • Step 3: After following the prompts, the app will be installed and functional. If you have an SD card, it's recommended to move the app there as it can take up quite a bit of space unless you disable map caching. To move it to the SD card, go to Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications -> WarLight -> Move to SD Card.
