Can students run the apps on their own phones?

March 6, 2016

Yes, provided they have enabled ‘sideloading’ of apps, that is, installing apps from sources other than official online app stores. This can usually be enabled on the Settings / Security screen, and appears as an option to install apps from untrusted sources. If students’ phones are not connected to the school wifi network, they will need an active data plan to download the apps to their devices: while the apps are small, it is important to note that students may incur data charges while downloading them.
