TouchDRO is an Android application that can be installed from the Google Play Store or Amazon App Store. The installation process is very similar for Android tablets and Amazon Fire tablets but for the sake of completeness we will cover both device types.
You might come across other sites that are hosting TouchDRO APKs (installation source files). Besides the fact that they are re-distributing TouchDRO illegally, installing applications from unknown sources can expose your tablet to various viruses or spyware. As such, it's highly recommended that you install the application from Google Play Store or Amazon App Store.
To install TouchDRO on an Android tablet you need to use the Google Play app. There two ways to do this:
- If you are reading this page on the tablet where you will be installing the application, simply click on the Google Play Store link above and your tablet will open the Play Store app automatically.
- Alternatively, you can find the Play Store app in the application list, which on most tablets you can open by swiping up from the bottom of the screen.
Finding the TouchDRO App
Once you have the Play Store app open, tap on the search bar, type "TouchDRO", and hit search. Search results will look similar to the screenshot below.
Click on the TouchDRO logo to go into the application details page.
Whether you get to the TouchDRO Play Store page by clicking the link in this article, or via searching the play store, the page will look similar to the screenshot below.
Press the Install button. This will start the installation process.
If you want to participate in a Beta program (which means that you will be getting new features and updates before they are rolled out to the general public), you can scroll down to the bottom of the page and click "Become a Beta Tester".
Once the installation finishes, you can add the TouchDRO icon to the home screen for easier access. On most tablets you can do so by finding the TouchDRO in the application list (swipe up from the bottom of the screen) and long-pressing the icon. A menu will pop up. In most Android versions, there will be an option to add to the home screen. If the option is not there, try dragging the icon a bit, which usually switches to the home screen, where you can drop the icon.
Amazon Fire Tablet
On Amazon Fire tablets, the Appstore app will be on the Home screen. Tap to open the app, type "TouchDRO'' into the search bar, and hit search. Your screen will look similar to the screenshot below.
Tap the "Get" button to start the installation. Once the installation is finished, you can exit back to the Home screen. There, you will see a newly added TouchDRO icon.
Once you install the TouchDRO application, you will need to perform some basic setup to configure the user interface for your specific machine. Please refer to the TouchDRO Initial Configuration page for instructions; more detailed information about the application functionality can be found in the TouchDRO User Manual section.
