The installation process for the FetLife App is a bit different than for Apps you'd find in the Google Play store. Nevertheless, it's still pretty easy and straightforward.
To install the official FetLife Android app, click on the button below and follow the on-screen instructions:Install Official FetLife Android App
Important Note: During the installation process, Android OS will ask you to change your device settings and enable the installation of Apps from Unknown Sources. Once you've finished installing the FetLife app, we highly recommend you disable this setting.
To install the App manually please go through the following steps:
Open your Download or File browser App and look for the FetLife Apk. The file name changes with every version, but the latest version is called: fetlife-2.13.0.apk.
If you can’t find the App file, please re-download it.
After locating the App file with your Download App or File browser simply click on it to start the Installation process. Selecting “yes” from the on-screen prompt.
Note: Some of the Download or File browser Apps do not automatically start the installation process after selecting the apk App file. If this is the case, please try to with long pressing on the selected file or use a different App.
Depending on your settings, Android OS might warn you at this point that in order to install the App you have the enable App installations from Unknown Sources. It will automatically offer you to take you to the appropriate Settings screen. Enable the Settings to continue the installation.
If your Android OS does not take you to this setting automatically, or the process stopped before you could enable it, you can do it manually via your Device Settings. Go to Settings -> Security and find the entry marked “Unknown Sources” and enable it.
If the installation process does not start automatically after enabling the Unknown Sources Setting, continue the installation using previous step.
The progress of the installation will be displayed in your notification bar. Once the app is intalled you can open it.
This step is not required, you already have the App, but to keep your device secure from malicious apps we highly recommend you disable the Unknown Sources Setting.
To do so go to to Settings -> Security and find the entry with “Unknown Sources” and disable it.
We would love to make the app available in Google's Play Store but unfortunately they don't allow apps with content like FetLife's.
There are other app stores aside from Google's. After reviewing several of them, we've decided to host the app ourselves.
We are still working to make the app available elsewhere but it often isn't a straightforward process. Some stores won't accept apps that contain adult content, some aren't that reliable, and others come with technical complications.
Our app is already available via GetJar and we are also working on making it available through F-Droid client.
