How to install an APK on a smartphone


You want to install BoostMyShop's newest mobile version to fix an issue you have.
Don't forget to uninstall the older version so it doesn't prevent you from installing the new one


  1. Before you can install it on your phone you will need to make sure that third-party apps are allowed on your device.
  2. Go to Menu > Settings > Security > and check Unknown Sources to allow your phone to install apps from sources other than the Google Play Store.
  3. Newer versions of Android do things a little differently. Rather than check a global setting to allow installation from unknown sources, you'll be prompted to allow your browser or file manager to install APKs the first time you attempt to do so.


Remember your credentials and the server's adress because it won't be saved when switching version
  1. Download the APK from your smartphone or copy the file from your computer to your phone
  2. Locate where you downloaded the APK file
  3. Press on the file, a short loading will start
  4. Now the new version is installed and it should correct your issue
