Installing Intuiface Player
- For an iPad, you will find Intuiface Player in the Apple App Store or search for Intuiface in iTunes.
- For an Android device, you will find Intuiface Player in the Google Play store or search the store for Intuiface.
- If your Android device doesn't have access to Google Play, please download the Player .apk installation file from the Intuiface Installers page.
- For Android 4.4 on x86, Player can only be downloaded from the Intuiface Installers page.
NOTE: Before using Player, be sure to acquaint yourself with known limitations. Player on the iPad and Android devices is not fully feature-equivalent to Player on Windows.
NOTE: The Error - 7013 - can appear if the Date and Time Zone are not properly set.
We recommend that you select the Automatic Date & Time provided by your device as Daylight Savings Time can incorrectly configure your device's time zone.
License checkout and release
Every Player login initiates a new license request. However, a logout does NOT release a license. Even uninstalling/reinstalling Player will not release a license. One must take the additional, formal step of releasing the license to make it available for use on other devices. Without this step, more than one license can be checked out for the same device.
Downloading and running an Intuiface experience
Assuming you have already installed Player, the overall process is as follows:
- Optionally, purchase additional Player licenses
- Browse to Intuiface's Pricing page and purchase your additional Player licenses using a credit card.
- Activate your license in Player.
- PREVIEW your work on the tablet
Here you are viewing an experience running in Composer's Play Mode. The following is a summary; the details are covered in this article.
- Make sure your tablet and Composer are on the same network and that the PC running Composer is properly configured for network communication. See this article.
- Run your experience in Composer's Play Mode.
- Run Player and log into your Intuiface account.
- Select the icon Connect to a Composer in Play Mode and enter the IP address of the PC running Composer. The experience will be copied to a temporary storage location on your tablet and then it will play.
- DOWNLOAD your work to the tablet for travel and/or offline use
Here you are saving an experience directly on the tablet.
- In Composer, publish your experience. This will make the experience available in the Player Experiences panel, on the "My Experiences" tab. Experiences shared with you by other Intuiface accounts will also be available in the Experiences panel, on the "Shared With Me" tab.
- Touch any experience in the Experiences panel and it will automatically download and then play.
Streaming your Intuiface experience from a tablet to an external screen
By installing appropriate hardware such as Chromecast for Android and Apple TV for iPad devices, you can stream your Intuiface experiences onto large screens. Of course, what you see on screen won't be interactive. Rather, it's a mirror of what is happening on the device.
