Compatibility

AMS works on most recent Android phones and tablets, and specifically it works on devices supporting Android 4.0.4+.

The linked page here contains benchmarks for recent mobile devices, including Samsung phones.  

As a guide, the minimum single core score required to operate AMS is 200, with AMS recommending devices with a score of 400 or more.

AMS recommends clients test their completed messages on a device before they commit to purchasing large volumes of devices.

Icon

In some situations, the forms you or your organisation have created will determine the requirements for your device.

Very complex and/or very large forms, including large volumes of on-device activity (sorting and processing), large forms, messages including images and/or video. These messages will place additional demands on a device's memory and processor.

If your organisation is considering the development of large and/or complex forms, then you should consider devices with dual or quad core CPU's. For such applications, AMS recommends devices with a benchmark score of 600 or higher.

Installation

AMS uses an Over The Air (OTA) installation methods. The process is essentially the same across different mobile devices but varies in details such as storage location. The general process is:

  1. Locate your device's Internet browser (typically Chrome or Internet on a Samsung device).
  2. Visit http://dl.ams.io
  3. Your device type should be automatically detected.
  4. Clicking the install link will start the download and installation process.

Follow instructions on the device.

Installing from an Unknown Source

Icon

Note that because AMS for Android is not installed directly from the Play Store, you all need to authorise the application to be installed.

To do this, just select the option to install from unknown sources when it is presented, scroll down to "Unknown Sources" and enable this option.

  1. If you are provided with the option to "Allow for this installation only", then we recommend you select this.
  2. If you don't, or it doesn't appear as an option, then we highly recommend you go back into Settings once the application installation is complete and turn off "Unknown Sources". To do this, go to "Settings" on your device and unselect "Unknown Sources"'.

The location for this option varies between Android versions. For example:

  • On Android 4.0.4 (e.g. Samsung Galaxy S3)  this is located in Settings / Security and lock screen
  • On Android 4.4.2 (e.g. Samsung Galaxy S5, Tab S) this is located in Settings / General / Security
  • On some tablets it can be found in Settings / Security / Device Administration

 

  1. Locate the AMS application (app) on the device. The exact location will vary according to your device and how you have it configured; it may be in the main Apps list or inside an Applications or even inside a folder.
  2. Start AMS and you will be presented with the Authentication Screen where you will need to enter the user name and password supplied by the organisation running the AMS apps.

  1. John Bruce I have referenced the benchmark site in a bid to quantify the required level of device performance.  I have picked scores based on devices I know people are using AMS on in the trials I have been involved with.  Happy to update these as required.
