Solid Edge viewer on Android

I'm told that the Solid Edge viewer is not compatible with my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 phone - Why? It's apparently available on other Android platforms

I know it requires Android 4.0 or better.  Not sure what the Note 2 has, but my Motorola Electrify won't run it because of that. Also, there may be a dependency on processors of some sort.

The Galaxy Note 2 (GT-N7100) has Android version 4.1.2 so it should run.

Re: Solid Edge viewer on Android

Yes, I was a little disappointed with this also...especially when I bought the Note2 last year in anticipation of being able to.

The limitation is actually the screen size...for whatever reason it has to be 7" or greater, plus some performance minimums too. (most likely 1GB RAM....as it won't work on my daughter's 7" low spec tablet)

Anyone want to buy a 1yo Galaxy Note2....??? :-/

Re: Solid Edge viewer on Android

I am facing the same problems. I have a 4.1 Android phone with 1GB Ram, but only 4.3 inches screen, so I can not install the app either.

 

It would be good to have the *.apk file of the app.

Interestingly I had seen this installed on a phone at the SEU.

Yes, I know it can be installed on the phone, but on Goole Play store there is a **** check, that do not allow me to download and install this app to my phone.

So how can we circumvent this and get it on a phone? I finally upgraded from the dark ages and got a Galaxy S4, and was disappointed to learn I could not install the viewer.

Unless the guys at Apple are paying Siemens to keep it off all other platforms the only way I know is just to lobby the Siemens team to port it to Android and screens of less than 18cm. The Galaxy Note 2 is a superb device and with 64gigs of memory far better than any iOS platform.

I have seen it work on an HTC Thunderbolt, but that was beta software that didn't come through the Play Store. I was surprised & disappointed when the Play Store blocked this app from my Galaxy S4.
